    I think those hackers should have done it a bit more professionally and actually made us to believe that 'the iPhone is being discontinued', or as you said-- 'Steve Jobs is dead'.

    for the past several events, gdgt has actually done a great job covering live events, and they plan on covering WWDC this year as well.

    http://live.gdgt.com/2010/06/07/live-wwdc-2010-keynote-coverage/

    for the iPad event back in January I found myself viewing gdgt a little more then I did Engadget (though I did toggle between both).

    FYI, for those of you who may not know, gdgt was started last year by Peter Rojas (who also started Engadget 8 years ago and eventually sold it to AOL) and Ryan Block (who was the Editor-in-Chief before Joshua Topolsky) and those two guys have a great track record.

    the next day on apples website should see a link on front page of macrumors, you can also subscribe to the keynote podcast via iTunes and not have to worry about finding a link: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/apple-keynotes/id275834665

    if you subscribe now it will automatically download the 4.0 keynote (lil heads up)

    its normally made available on apple.com around 4-5pm (PST) for streaming. its takes a day or two to be made available for download.

    for the iPad event, the video was made available for streaming around 5pm, but because so many people were trying to the view the stream at same time, the servers were having a hard time keeping up and so I had to wait until 10pm before I got a reliable stream.

    GDGT is pretty good. Their updates are pushed through in real time along with hi-res photos.

    That's true, but it still refreshes the entire screen and if i am reading it, I have to find my place again. Cover It Live is nicer since it just updates new info on the screen and then moves on.

    Engadget has the option to turn off the auto refresh. I like gdgt because the editor used to be part of Engadget so it's not like they're competing for anything.

    It's getting to the point where live video would be a bad idea. All Apple needs is some Flash dev or Open Source loon to pay $1,500 to be there to just throw paint over Jobs. Or least, the front of the stage, missing Jobs completely.

    The iTunes one goes up later than the Apple website version (sometimes by a few days), and is sometimes more edited/refined.

    Does it have an option to remove the snark? I like their coverage but during the inevitable pre-iPhone stuff Josh Topolsky usually just whines about how boring it is or how Apple have too much of a pro-Apple stance.

    Laport usually does a live show and they are usually piping in audio or video feeds as they are available. http://live.twit.tv/

    I guess they want to get the stream of it up as soon as possible. I'm imagining a whole crew going crazy in Final Cut Pro the second Steve walks off stage.
