      @Hasam1991 because Apple would throw lawyers at us by the truckload.

    Doesn't Apple usually offer a stream for people using Apple devices? I could have sworn I watched a keynote live last year from my iPhone.

    • RE: Apple's

      @Bates_ Yes, but it's not a live stream. Apple puts up the video a couple hours after the live keynote ends.

        @WarhavenSC Actually, Apple did stream two of their events to anyone with OS X or iOS. Here is the press release from the first one:

        @alistaircom I thought so, I kind of remember sitting in my old office staring down at my phone because I was excited about the event.

  • ...and the sheeple frenzy starts!

    Here's what we (the atheists who don't pray at the alter of Jobs et. al) have to look forward to as ZDNet froths at the mouth, wagging its little tail for it's Apple master!
    Just look at the quote:
    "...Join me, along with several ZDNet bloggers..."

    How many people does it really take to post out the important bits from a keynote?

    "...for a minute-by-minute commmentary [sic] and analysis..."

    Oh joy, I can just see it now, each ZDNet drone copying each-single-letter-of-each-single-word, multiple times because of the amount of people duplicating the same thing!!

    Honestly, a lapdog could learn a thing or two from you lot.

    Now, go fetch your bone and be a good boy on Oct 4th. Don't make any embarrassing "accidents" on the floor in all the excitement (or another word starting with ex.)

      I was thinking it was going to be something along those lines too. ZDNet bloggers bickering amongst themselves just like they do in their blogs when one of them gets called out.

    Well about 3 hours until the Anti-Apple Shills declare the iPhone 5 & iOS 5 to be a failure.

      +1. Look at this poll and that tells how many Android Lovers are actually worried about iPhone 5. They think that it will crush their OS of choice could topple to bottom. http://www.zdnet.com/debate/great-debate-is-the-iphone-5-your-dream-phone/6306467

  • How is this better than James Kendrick's live analysis?

    Just curious why ZDNet needs 2 different live events for the same presentation?

    Regardless, why should I watch your live event instead of James Kendrick's? James tends to be more fact based while you tend to be all about the click baiting and as such, your analysis tends to be extremely shallow.
