Apple announced this afternoon that they will be broadcasting their media event live over the internet.
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. So that means no PCs. The live broadcast will begin at 10:00 a.m. PDT on September 1, 2010 at www.apple.com.This is the first time for many years that Apple has decided to offer a live video stream of their media events.
