    I remember looking at Engadget's for last years iPhone event even though I prefer The Verge over Engadget, but The Verge was having problems with their liveblog, if I remember correctly.

    Any other good liveblogs that you guys know of for watching the iPhone 5 event unfold?

    CNET does a good job. I watch them for the Nexus 7 and WWDC12.

    The Verge. Last year they had some issues, but every liveblog they've done this year I've tuned into has been perfect. So slick.

    My personal favourite.

    I was going to ask this question. I have always seen live blogs at engadget but never anywhere else so don't how others are. This thread will help me in deciding where to "watch" the event on wednesday.

    Ahh, I forgot to ask: Which liveblogs do you know of that are easy to watch on an iPhone? The keynote starts at the end of my school day, but I'd like to catch the first 45 mins or so, so it'd be great being able to watch a liveblog on my iPhone... I forget if Engadget's worked on mobile.

    Anyone know?

    ----------

    I was wondering about this, actually. I haven't seen any of their recent liveblogs. The only one I saw of theirs was last years when they were having some issues. I remember Engadget's liveblog updating very quickly however, although the picture view was a bit small if I recall.

    ----------

    Yup, same reason I made this thread. :)

    I usually have luck with macworld for the liveblogs. sometimes, i would even try BGR if macworld's blog is down the day of the keynote.

    I usually have Engadget and Verge open at the same time. I stick with one but if the updates get infrequent or it gets buggy, then flip over to the other.

    Engadget, The Verge, and MR Live (mainly for pictures).

    MR uses to be the best, however it now seems archaically slow at updating compared to Engadget/The Verge. Has good pictures usually though.

    As I posted in another thread, Engadget has recently updated their liveblog and it is amazing. It's beautifully done.

    Engadget also have an app in the App Store - wonder whether the event will be live within the app?

    I usually leave Engadget and the Verge running in separate tabs.

    I know that with The Verge's app you can't see liveblogs. I just downloaded the Engadget app and don't see anything about liveblogs in there either. Whatever, I guess I'll just use The Verge's mobile site for the first 45 mins, or I'll just watch twitter lol... people are going to be tweeting left and right about this feature and that feature.

    I'll usually use Engadget and The Verge side-by-side in Windows 7 (one thing I still haven't figured out how to do in OSX).

    Might be pulled down quickly by apple. I know they did something like this at the iPad event this year.
    Correct me if i am wrong.

    Usually The Verge and Engadget both, to see different perspectives

    I liked Engadget for the longest time, but I like The Verge the most now.

    Never tried The Verge. I used to use CNET, but have been using Engadget the past few times.
