Apple will, for the first time, be live streaming its press event today - but only to the Apple faithful.

Apple will broadcast its September 1 event online using Apple's industry-leading HTTP Live Streaming, which is based on open standards. Viewing requires either a Mac® running Safari on Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard, an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or higher, or an iPad. The live broadcast will begin at 10:00 a.m. PDT on September 1, 2010 at www.apple.com.

This is the biggest clue yet that Apple is planning some sort of streaming related announcement today (or perhaps just a MacGuffin).

If you're a Windows or Linux user, get lost. Don't worry though, Hardware 2.0 will be providing live analysis of the information coming out of San Francisco as it happens! Sign up below for a reminder when the event starts!
