TUAW TV Live at 5 PM ET: One week until the iPad 3 launch

It's one week exactly until the world knows what the new iPad is all about. For many of us here at TUAW, that means getting prepared to do a lot of writing about the new features, putting our existing iPads up for sale, and eagerly anticipating what cool new things we'll be able to do with our new toys when they arrive. That means it's a great time to pump up the excitement today on TUAW TV Live.

If everything works correctly, this should also be our first truly HD show (720p). The issues with the HD webcam have been fixed thanks to the latest version of Wirecast Pro, and you'll get to see me and the demos in all their 720p glory. At least the demos will look good...

And speaking of looking good, many thanks to TUAW TV Live viewer Uri Kelman, who designed the new logo you see at the top of the page.

As usual, I'll be starting the show at 5 PM EDT (2 PM PDT / 10 PM BST) sharp, and we'll take a few minutes to chat before the demos start. To join in on the chat and watch the live streaming video, drop by TUAW about five minutes before the start time to get your instructions on how to participate. If you're unable to join us for the show, remember that you can always subscribe to the video podcast and watch the show at your leisure in iTunes or any other favorite podcatching app. The past shows are also available on the TUAW YouTube channel.

The chat is now available as well on IRC: join us on server, chat room #tuaw-tv.
