WWDC 2010 live meta-blog

WWDC 2010's keynote kicks off at 10am PT/1pm ET/6pm BST. There probably won't be any live video streams -- Apple doesn't do them and they typically shut down anyone they catch trying to do it. So, we invite you to sit back, relax, and join us for coverage, color, and commentary.

NOTE: Apple keynotes typically bring down the internet. We've got two widgets after the break because both have failed in the past. If one fails this time, we'll switch to the other. You shouldn't have to refresh the page.

Art VanBurenBoy says:

And I thought Tipb would sneak in an iPhone and stream live footage via USTREAM ;)

Gusjata says:

What time is it going to be in GMT, +6?

fastlane says:

Doesn't your iPhone have a world clock? :|

ThirstyTech says:

Aaron says:

Art VanBuren says:

@Lurizzle says:

Call *639# from your iPhone and AT&T will send you a free SMS letting you know if you are eligible for iPhone upgrade! AT&T is allowing many of us to upgrade early. Unfortunately, im not able until 2/20/2011 :/
What about you?

kayno says:

@Lurizzle I am eligible as to upgrade as we speak.. I Have upgraded every year since the 2g iPhone

iSurf says:

I understand that this is 3 days, wich of the 3 days will the speak about the iphone?

Art VanBuren says:

They usually announce the iPhone on the first day, TODAY :)

Vancanek says:

@Lurizzle That's a nifty little trick there. I am eligible for an upgrade for a $18 fee and a new 2-year agreement. Hmmmm....

Courtney says:

@Lurizzle thanks for that! i'm able to upgrade with an $18 fee and a 2 year agreement too :)

Yutooman says:

Earless puppy says:

I'm waiting for Steve to apologize for forgetting to send gizmodo their invitation... It will be funny

unchew says:

iPad Weekly says:

Can't wait to see what Steve announces!

isaac65 says:

I'm really excited. I can't wait for Steve to tell me when I should plan to camp out to get the new iPhone!
BTW, does anyone know if there will be any sites offering live chatting during the event?

BNV6 says:

MobileMe free please!

ChrisJ says:

i can upgrade now for $18. wife can upgrade in feb as she broke phone and replace.

iBuzz says:

Why no live video?! Kind of ironic that they're showing off the newest iPhone-related wares, but in secret.

@Lurizzle says:

You're welcome guys... For more info, follow my twitter account - I post iphone/iPad stuff all the time :)

matthew23 says:

Lurizzle - My date is the same - 2/20/11. I tink it is because after my corporate discount I only pay like $85/month. Anyone know if they will still allow me to update at a cheaper price if I show up and beg?

isaac65 says:

engadget has also started live blogging. So excited!

Vancanek says:

@Matthew I use my corporate discount and pay the same and I am eligible, according to the text. I think it is based on when you got the iPhone. I'm guessing over a year is eligible.

@Lurizzle says:

Matthew - You know what, I'm on a corporate discount too! That HAS to be it. I read somewhere the dates are determined by the dollar amount of your monthly bill. I'm sure that's why those of us on a discounted plan aren't yet eligible. Let me know how the begging works out ;)

Soupy says:

Apple used to do live streams of keynotes on their website many years ago. How come they don't do it anymore? Is it a matter of not being able to keep up with the traffic?

Kevin says:

I don't think corporate rate has anything to do with it. I am on a corporate plan, bought my phone 6/19/2009 and am eligible now. P.S. - I also pay 22.50 per month for unlimited web. Not changing that anytime soon.

Yarrah says:

Guys theres live audio and video streams all over USTREAM, just visit ustream and search WWDC :D Im getting audio/video feed live!!! :D

Eagleyesmith says:

Can you post the link that you're using to get live video and audio?!

ericadams01 says:

What's wrong mine don't seem to be working

AppleBoy says:

Why does Steve Jobs always wear the same exact thing. I mean a guy with billions under his name can afford other clothing beside that black sweater and blue jean LOL. Anyways GO STEVE Unleash the 4G/HD on us!!

Isaac65 says:

Check your computer! Link works & it's just amazing!

Eagleyesmith says:

If I was that rich I wouldn't care what I wore on stage either. As long as I look presentable, I would be good.

Ojo_Verde says:

@ Isaac
The link doesn't work for me either, I guess I'll have to watch when they post up the keynote = [

Namo says:

OMG I peed in my pants from excitement. LOL

Crunch says:

Holy shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....................IPS and 326ppi on an iPhone!!? W-o-W! (Just woke up, sorry haha)

Crunch says:

And yes, looks like it IS the FAN (corporate discount)...We can still get it discounted though!

Crunch says:

Just not as steeply. "Call" *639#...

greg says:

WHAT HAPPENED TO VIDEO CHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Crunch says:

I'm watching this thing live on CNN's iPhone app, tape delayed by 10 minutes.

Crunch says:

Eat your heart out, Verizon haha! This device is NUTS and $199...W-o-W!!!!!!

Steve UK says:

So, another 100 million or so frigging iPhones due to be sold to add to the 100 million or so out there already but and we are all still stuck with six freaking text tones to share amongst us!
Stick your gyroscope where the sun doesn't shine and just let me modify my phone a bit.
Oi...........Android, hold on, I'm coming..............

android is really really great says:

oh i forgot everything this new phone does the android HTC EVO 4G already does. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Screw you Steve Jobs.

iTouchAnswerz says:

Some really cool new features! Love the video chatting and TWO CAMERAS! Also they can record in HD! And iMovie app to go with it. Apple did not dissapoint with this. I like the iPhones, and now they come at a responably good price.

The Google Nexus One says:

The Google Nexus One paved the way for all other Android phones to be better than the iPhone 4 well before the new iPhone launched.

Barnard says:

Just observed your site on yahoo and i think it is a shame that you just aren't ranked increased considering that this really is a fantastic post. To change this I determined to save your website to my RSS reader and i will try to point out you in a single of my posts since you genuinely deserv a lot more readers when publishing content material of this top quality.
