    I didn't really know where to put this, so I posted it here:

    I wonder if Apple Keynotes, now that they will almost all be in-house and on Apple's time, will be streamed live or semi-live. Any thoughts from anyone? I get soooo annoyed that I have to wait to see the stream for like 7 hours. Nothing against the great job the Engadget crew and others who metablog, but I can stop myself from following the metablogs, which ruins the stream later. I just wish I could sit and watch the keynote without knowing what's coming next... I know, I know, I could just not follow along with the metablogs, but seriously, I'm a crazy fanboy and can't help myself. Anyone have any thoughts, insults, comments they wanna make on this or my plea?

    Certainly the wrong forum. The post you already made as part of that other thread was fine.

    I can't see them live-streaming just because Steve is gone. Simple solution (you've already said it): don't follow the blog wordstreams.

    Or just do follow them, then go to the Apple site and see what is new as opposed to waiting several hours for the keynote to come out so that you can stream it. You're going to have the thing ruined for you if you wait, anyway, because you have to go to the Apple site to get to the keynote, and in doing so, you have to see the front page.

    Well, some have been audio lived stream by a few of the blog websites.

    Doing video will require way too many resources because the amount of traffic it would get would just kill it.

    Not quite.

    www.apple.com/quicktime/qtv

    Always has the newest keynote, just bookmark it and click on it when the time is right.

    When they released the new iPod Nano, they had a bloody advert on that page so everyone who clicked the link (spoiler free folk) got an ad on it showing the new Nano lol.

    I wouldn't necesarily agree that Steve is gone. I personally think that one of two things is going on...

    1/2) Steve Jobs wants to launch something in the months after Macworld and so doesn't want it to seem like just another keynote. Also, if something got delayed and nothing big is coming out, I doubt Steve would want to keynote it. It would give everyone the thought that Steve doesn't drop bombs everytime he hits the stage. This way, everyone keeps the god-like image of Steve in their heads for when there is a Apple event on Apple's campus on Apple's time.

    3) This kind of has to do with the other reason and a half, but if this thing is all about the Push Notification service and anything iPod, then it makes sense Phil is doing the Keynote. Steve doesn't want to be associated with the mess up of Push. Also, Steve wants to be known for amazing new things, not updates to the existing products (see: SDK keynote, where he did less than 25% of the talking).

    Any thoughts?
