thing more fun than poring over all of the new stuff that's revealed during a Steve Jobs keynote is watching Jobs
himself deliver the goods. He's such a talented public speaker, and knows precisely how to work a Mac geek like me into
a credit card-fueled frenzy. For the past couple of years at least, Apple has not provided a live web broadcast of the
keynote, opting instead to post the video to its website after the fact. It looks like that's the plan for this Tuesday
as well, which
is disappointing. I'll watch the video, of course, but watching it happen live is so much more pleasant than
impatiently waiting for a bare-bones and overburdened website to refresh its content.
Come on, Steve, let us
have the webcasts back. Aside from feeding my adolescent need for instant gratification, the webcasts are a real display
of Apple's technical prowess. Or something.
