    I have midterms right now and i have an ap physics exam starting at 1pm (i live in New Jersey) so i was wondering what is the best way for me to follow on my phone. Is there an app or a website other than macrumors that i could use? i cant you mac rumors because in my high schools science wing i dont have and cell service so i use the wifi but that blocks mac rumors. Any other websites doing the live feed on a webpage built for the iphone? thanks again guys! and happy tableting!

    I have the same dilemma. I will be away from my computer with only my iPhone during the event. Any site you guys recommend? Will MacRumors be good enough for live coverage? Engadget maybe? That means I will just keep on refreshing my phone Safari browser, right?

    I'm going to be at a funeral and busy as well. :/

    It will be really awkward to try and check my iPhone...

    Is there a way to get text messages instead of tweets so I get alerts instead of having to check Twitterific?

    Couldn't you set up your twitter account to send the tweets as text messages? I have that setup for some of the people I follow.

    I usually use Engadget. Just personal preference.

    I'd love that. But can I select certain accounts to be forwarded to my phone or will they all be sent as texts. That would get intrusive.

    Also, I believe 9to5mac.com is doing a live feed and they may be attempting a video feed or text to speech from the Dragon Dictate application. (They're trying a new way to allow readers to experience the keynote live.)

    I think it'd be awesome if they tried to stream it live from Qik and maybe text from Dragon Dictate as well.

    Sadly, none of this will matter because I will get home to a computer long after the full keynote has been posted to apple.com

    Yes, you can. Just click on the mobile phone icon next to "following" on their twitter profile.
