    Hey guys/gals,

    I know this year being decently spoiler-free has been impossible due to Gizmodo and numerous other major leaks, but either way - this thread is meant for people who would prefer to wait until the Keynote is viewable.

    As always,please don't post ANYTHING that may indicate how WWDC turned out (Ex. No Apple stock updates, no iPhone rumors, no OS X news).

    I will update this post with a link Monday night, courtesy of Voidness & other members. The Keynote is typically online 5-6 hours after the Keynote ends)


    Thanks for everyone who contributed! And thank Voidness for the amazing Keynote checker.

    Just what I wanted, didn't MacRumors previously send an email to users who wanted spoiler free coverage?

    Or am I dreaming?

    We do usually set up a notification system, but between the time it takes us to post the update and for the system to send out tens of thousands of emails, it's frequently faster to check in the dedicated spoiler-free thread if you're going to be hanging around here anyway.

    I would imagine we'll be doing the email thing again this time and that arn will set it up over the weekend.

    They did. However, their Spoiler-free pages don't post the link to the video in a timely fashion. Typically, on these unofficial ones, we're the first ones to post the link.

    Also, they often display spoiler type headlines on their Spoiler-free pages (not on purpose).

    We try really hard not to do that. By getting it up a bit early, it gives people time to spot any areas that could generate spoilers and let us fix it.

    For instance, here is the one from the last big event, and we made sure there were no areas on it where spoilers could pop up. :)

    Oh I know. I was just mentioning it because I heard people complain about it in the past.

    Well, this is unusual but I hope this thread picks up steam.

    Usually, we would have 15-20 active posters on a thread like this but it seems like people may just rely on the MacRumors official spoiler-free page or people don't care (seeing as how the iPhone has leaked months ago).

    If we don't get some brave souls to check if the Keynote is up, then this thread will be pointless!!

    ^^^ Count me in.

    Come the day of the event there'll be more responses than you can shake a refresh at.

    Yeah! count me in too, I can't imagine another way to watch a keynote than spoiler-free. I don't post a lot here but I've been spoiler-free thanks to this forum since 2007, I don't care if the iphone is been leaked, anyway this is the best keynote we'll see this june 7th so better watch it in the best way as always.

    I'm going spoiler free this year. I don't want to know anything until the video is up.

    WWDC 2010 Spoiler Free Keynote Stream


    On June 7th, Apple will be holding a keynote for WWDC 2010. 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 ends.

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

    Bookmark this link

    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

    If you've never tried going "spoiler-free," let me be the first to tell ya — it's worth it.

    It's difficult not to peak though! Especially when you see that your RSS feeds are filling up, friends are texting you about new products, and of course, looking at MacRumors. :)

    Thanks again for doing this. It's the only way to find out about Apple's new stuff. I remember getting up early, I think January of 2004, to watch the Macworld keynote live online. It's too bad they don't stream it live anymore. It was either live or posted right after it was over. I just remember being done watching it before noon. Does anyone else remember that? I know I'm not imagining it. I was a hardcore follower back then. Um, still am.

    Yay! Spoiler Free For Life! I miss like 10 years ago when they used to stream these things live. yes rickdollar. I too remember those days. It was super easy being spoiler free back then. Yeah the picture kinda sucked and it would just stop playing for like no reason. But, you'd think with all the broadband and content they're streaming now a days they could provide a good live stream. But in lieu of livey goodness, I remain willfully ignorant til the video is available.

    Holy crap, this service was exactly what I was thinking about earlier this week.

    I don't want to see those spoilers written by those Engadget guys who post every 15 seconds about how Steve Jobs is "taking another sip of his water bottle."

    But the habits of Steve on stage are so stupefying one could be satisfied with them alone.

    Welcome back everyone lets make this a forum good and spoiler-freeness, on a related note anything interesting thats non-apple related going around on internet?

    Hear hear! This is my first spoiler-free keynote, with the possible exception of the introduction of the aluminium iMacs and iWork/iLife '08 back in 2007, when I wasn't really interested enough in Apple to have read about it, and started watching the keynote by accident. Good accident :cool: Plus I'm in exams all day, so it'll be a nice way to end my day.

    On non-Apple related Internet stuff, I'll throw something into the ring. I'm sure most of you have heard Bletchley Park - also called Station X - which was where the UK government did considerable work on cracking the German codes in WWII, specifically the Enigma Machine.

    Most of the documents have been kept secret since the war ended, but HP are donating a number of scanners to help scan in the documents and post them online, so we can see just how hard they worked.

    Anyway, hope somebody finds that interesting. And thanks again for the forum!
