    Ok so here's my dilemma. I have to go do a 2 1/2 hour "chore". Should I plan that through the announcement and watch the video later or plan around it and read it live?

    I need some opinions and I'm just curious about everyone else.

    I'm not one for being patient, so I say read live and plan around the keynote. That's my plan.

    I've always found it to be more rewarding to wait and watch the video... I'm not hardcore enough to text it up.

    My plans do involve countryside with no internet (if I don't want it).

    This is starting to sound better and better. Because if I read it live I'll just go back and watch that video later.

    I plan on watching Leo at live.twit.tv all morning with his coverage of the event as well as checking out Engadget and Giz.

    I might swing by these forums every once and a while too ;)

    Does that show the Keynote or just this guy's face?

    Well I suppose to be at work when the Keynote comes out, but I'm calling in telling them I'll be coming in early instead of working later.

    Leo is going to have live coverage? I usually listen to a little of his show if I have time on the weekends but I was busy this weekend ( and by busy I mean at the beach ) so the only part a caught was a few words on the Pre. I'll probably still wait for the video.

    It will be him talking with guests and listening to a live audio stream from inside the keynote. As long as they don't get caught;)

    There should be a both option, because I read the live blogs, and then later that night if I'm bothered and if the keynote was a good one, I watch the video.

    Then you don't qualify for the second one which obviously says "hide" (that means don't read). ;)

    That's why he said there should be an option for people who do both: read and then watch the keynote later.

    I've enjoyed browsing around during classes to see new updates. It makes it more fun. :D

    Thankfully I'm on summer vacation.

    I'll be reading and maybe now also listening to Leo a bit and then anxiously awaiting the keynote video a couple of hours later.

    Haha it's cool. Too bad I can't edit the poll, oh well. I just want that keynote posted now. Is that too much to ask?

    I will be glued to my MBP! :D

    I may download the video when it gets posted too. That will be later though. I don't want to wait that long...

    I'v got my alarm set for an hour before the keynote starts. I'll probably follow a couple different live blogs and then download the video from itunes once it's available.

    So I guess I watch it later!
