Apple will kick off it's "Let's Rock" media event on September 9th, 2008. News sites across the web will cover every announcement in detail, while Apple's site will be updated with any new products announced.

Some readers prefer watching the keynote themselves without knowing the outcome. Unfortunately, there is no live video feed for the keynote. Instead, Apple will likely post a recorded Quicktime stream a few hours after the keynote completes. However, for these smaller media events, there are no guarantees.

For those individuals, we've posted this news story which will be updated with the link to the Let's Rock event once it becomes available from Apple. No other news stories or announcements will be displayed alongside this story.


You can also subscribe to our notification list which will send out an email when the keynote is posted online. The mailing list will only be used for notifications for these spoiler free announcements and you may unsubscribe at any time.

Notify me of Keynote Stream function CheckMultiple5(frm, name) { for (var i=0; i < frm.length; i++) { fldObj = frm.elements; fldId = fldObj.id; if (fldId) { var fieldnamecheck=fldObj.id.indexOf(name); if (fieldnamecheck != -1) { if (fldObj.checked) { return true; } } } } return false; } function CheckForm5(f) { if (f.email.value == "") { alert("Please enter your email address."); f.email.focus(); return false; } return true; };
Apple can take several hours to post the feed. The mailing list can also take up to a couple of hours to send out all the emails. Be patient. Or keep checking this page.

What about those of us who don't mind spoilers? I'd like to have a (basically) live transcription of everything that goes on. Where can one find such a feed?

Last time I signed up for the spoiler free email, it took over two days for the email to be sent out. If you don't mind waiting two days, this is for you.

Now watch this get deleted just like every other thing I post on this website.

Never understood why people want "spoiler free". Isn't that like going to a concert , wearing ear plugs, and just looking at the track list when it's finished?

actually, not at all. Watching the stream spoiler free is just allowing Steve to introduce the product to you and not just "aluminum macbooks released"

No it is the complete opposite - it is like getting a tracklist then going to a concert.

I don't want to know the tracklist before I go to a concert, just like I don't want to know Apple's announcements before I watch the keynote. I love the suspense Steve and co bring to the stage.

Your comment may have just made me switch to the spoiler free plan, once again, for the 4th (?) time in a row. I almost forgot what it's like to watch. It's kinda indescribable. You have a faint hint of what's going to happen, but not everything in between, and when everything starts coming out its just wow. Nearly like being there live.

Actually, after thinking about it more and more, I think I'll attempt it again. :)

Yeah, signing up for spoiler free is great.

Unfortunately, I forgot to change my homepage last time so I ended up having the Mac Book Air officially revealed to me by the MacRumors front page rather than the keynote.

I'm hoping for a big price drop on the 32 GB iPod Touch. Like... $300 (which is what I payed for my 5G iPod 30 GB that I use right now,) would be a good price. Although I may be willing to spend as much as $400.

I'll be away until 5 PM EST... hopefully the video is up by then.

I would sign up for sure if I was in the states. As it is, I have to wait for 6pm for the keynote to start then a few hours for news to trickle out... if I'm lucky the keynote will be up by midnight... doubt it though. Hence reading along...!

I've never tried having a "Spoiler-Free" event by watching the video after the products were announced. Always had the SMS messages tell me first, but time to try something different since I'll be late coming home from school tomorrow (like 8ish?).

But, I haven't been looking forward to this day since the last iPod event last year. With this event bound to introduce new iPod touches, my good 'ol iPod touch will become old technology. :(

Oh well, here's to another $200 price cut on the iPhone 3G!:D
