Apple to Stream 'Back to the Mac' Event Live
Apple on Wednesday morning announced that it will stream its Back to the Mac press event live. After a long hiatus from streaming events, this will be the second time in as many months that Apple has restarted the practice.
Apple says that it will stream its Mac-centric event using "industry-leading" HTTP Live Streaming, which is "based on open standards." As with its September 1 music event, the first in five years that Apple also streamed live, viewers will need a Mac with Safari on OS X 10.6 Leopard, or an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 3.0 or later. Though the live streaming announcement has not been posted at Apple's site at the time of publishing, an Apple press representative confirmed to Macworld that the event will be streamed.
Apple's broadcast begins at 10am PT and the company will post a link soon on Apple.com. To stay in the know with interactive reporting and contextual play-by-play analysis, tune into Macworld's live coverage of the event.
