I would like to know where the best(best quality) place to watch MWSF online. I remember watching other MacWorlds at apple.com, and at 100% size and it was only 3 by 3 inches. Is their a feed that is of a higher quality?

I would love to watch MWSF in half or even full screen. :D

Thanks for taking the time to read and post. :)

Well bandwidth limits the quality for webstreams .. if there is a satellite case you can tune into that with your $$$$ equipment .. or if they are showing it in an Apple store you can go there ..

Then again how detailed do you need to see a turtle neck ??

It really depends on whether or not Apple decides to provide a live webcast, which I doubt considering they didn't for last year's WWDC and IIRC the MWSF as well. Of course you can always go to MR's IRC channel as we'll probably have somebody from the conference providing live updates. In short, don't expect a quality video feed, especially real time.

Do they show it live in the Apple Stores even if it's not available as a webcast?

Hmmm, just thinking about that lovely theatre in Regent St...

Edit: I guess not - since the Regent St homepage is advertising a Macromedia MX presentation at 7pm next Tuesday

Apple did a live webcast via satellite to its local Apple Stores last year. So I am expecting a repeat performance. Trying to see it on the Internet has been very disappointing and frustrating.

that's what I was wondering but I was hoping there was a way of doing this without moving the dish around? I'd watch the internet feed but it's just not practical on dialup in fact it down right sucks.

Damn, I have class starting at 9:30, otherwise I'd pay whatever price they ask for.

I chose to go SF state mainly because of the Macworlds btw :D
