  • Live[ish] Coverage - Apple Event: Hello, ?
    It's here, and we're covering it. We'll be quasi-live-blogging from a bunch of sources covering the event (like Gizmodo, Engadget, Ars Technica, and Wired) , and you can refresh here to check the latest.

    What's gonna happen? Not sure... rumors were rounded up here, maybe the Beatles in iTunes? Maybe a new iPod? We'll keep you updated...

    So far, it looks like folks are in position and ready and waiting. 5 minutes to show start...

      Someone needed to go in with a couple extra battery packs and QiK...live streaming from their iPhone. OR was that not allowed? Either way people won't be able to really tell.

      Genius Mixes are in iTunes 9... and are cool.
