Apple has posted a Quicktime video-on-demand stream of this morning's keynote address by CEO Steve Jobs. Two links are available on Apple's site: one for the keynote and one for the iPhone introduction.

Also introduced today during the keynote was the Apple TV (formerly iTV). Apple also announced a deal to bring catalog Paramount movies to the iTunes Store and a corporate name change to Apple Incorporated (from Apple Computer Incorporated).

A couple of comments.

I got an entirely different impression of the flow and the product priorities from the video than I did from the normally reliable MacRumors updates.

It seems Apple is making a HUGE mistake by NOT offering a live stream of the event.

Secondly.

The stream has access and download speed issue. MR user "Peace" assured me Apple, Inc. has increased server capacity as of yesterday by activating the former Worldcom telecom center as an Apple server farm.

It seems the same fate that Apple Computer, Inc. experienced at Christmas when folks wanted to download iTunes for their shiny new iPods, has befallen now Apple, Inc. customers, and users, and developers, and dealers, on this historic day in merely trying to download a stream of the Macworld expo.

Undercapacity and over use!

How dare we!

Not working right now. I had it, then I paused it to answer a call, and it never started again. Now there's an unavailable message...

This is why Apple doesn't do live streams anymore ;-)

EDIT: Follow instructions here to watch, it works for me right now, even though that message is up...

Heh... The exact same thing happened to me.

Funny - the MR forums are also giving me the "Server too busy" message :). Thanks for the tip, though. Vid is playing great now.

the act you've know for all these years?

Steve chose to play the Beatles during the iPod demo of the iPhone...
Um... I was expecting a legendary iTunes deal to follow.
I think that's the next big thing.
Just have to get Paul and Yoko to agree.


What else?
I'm hoping for a yellow iPod loaded with the first 10 seasons of the Simpsons.

If they don't have the bandwidth, why can't they just post a torrent?

It's a sure thing now that there's a deal. No way would Steve play the Beatles otherwise. He just didn't want anything (Leopard, Beatles, 8-core Mac Pro, etc) to distract from Apple TV and especially the iPhone. And the iPhone will be the most talked-about thing for the next couple of days. But you can bet that the Beatles deal will be only one of many aftershocks coming in the next few days and weeks. It's a good time to be an Apple fan.

Yah I think I'll try it this weekend. Normally I wouldn't ask this but if someone figure out how to download it can you bittorrent the sucker, please? Then again the stream is prob copyrighted. :rolleyes:

For things like this Apple really should create a torrent. Put 3-4 servers up hosting the seed on some high cap pipes, and then let the Mac community take care of the rest.

I'm trying to load it now, but if I can't i was wondering if it would be legal for someone to save it and put it up for people to download?
