The only logical explanation I've heard is that the tickets to this event are very expensive and that Apple thinks they deserve first shot at the new stuff. But, if its on satellite (and possibly Tech TV), I don't see the point. <br><br>Overall, those keynotes really win over mac fans, I think they would be better off broadcasting it too.<br><br>

These days Apple tends to not broadcast most events anymore on the web. I think its because they don't think the bandwidth expense is worth it. They still do MacWorlds I would imagine because its sorta been a tradition.<br><br>Maybe MSNBC will cary it in Windows Media Player again <br><br>Ryan<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by morserj on 06/20/03 01:12 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

Crap, I've got a camera but no Tech TV. What a bunch of stooges.<br><br>I had heard it was on Tech TV but not verified? Man, this is going to be a sweet show. If you guys have an Apple Store nearby that would be really fun.<br><br>

Go to an Apple store and use their cameras and bandwidth to stream it! <br><br>"If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something. "

They might not even get put out until after the store closes that night.<br><br>Ryan

But, I have been to the mall enough to make all that stuff relatively boring. But then again a trip to the Apple store is always worth a visit . Your starting to talk me into it.<br><br>Ryan
