Apple to live stream September event – for Macs

By on

Well, after learning from their previous mistakes when trying to demo the iPhone 4 but were not able to because of the numerous wireless connections trying to live blog the god damn event, Apple has decided to live stream their event on its website.

Only one problem. You need to be using an Apple product to watch the event, limiting access to those who use Snow Leopard with Safari, or using an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

Yes, I know. WTF!?

The event starts at 10am Los Angeles Time tomorrow – that’s 3am here in Melbourne. Full press release is below.

What:
