Also interested to know. Always nice to have a stream of audio in the early hours of the morning.

@GeeksOnAir (https://twitter.com/GeeksOnAir) are doing one but the days of a MacTalk podcast are done and dusted.

Nope, we're not doing a live-stream this time around, so either find your favourite liveblog or listen in to Geeks On Air.

We'll have a wrap-up post first thing tomorrow morning, though :)

Anyone know if there will be a live stream on the Apple TV?

It's pretty unlikely Apple will be doing it via a Live Stream, but I think the last time they announced it was around this time our time.

Edit: LOL.

Oh really? Long and the short of it was that people got mad because Apple announced the stream would be Apple TV only. I bet a lot of people went out to buy Apple TVs the next day :)

Nah, this is exactly how it played out in October. First a button appeared on apple tvs, then people freaked out looking for a way to grab the stream if they didn't own atvs, then a few hours later apple updated the events page and streamed their too. My atv stream crashed half way through the event and I watched the second half on the laptop.

Hopefully one of Apple's new data centres will be dedicated to pumping out the WWDC live stream. There gonna need it!

I've re-considered staying up for it, mostly because I don't want to be disappointed by a flakey live stream at 3am. Going to catch the news after the fact, has worked for me with every other apple keynote, and catch the keynote at work tomorrow (yay for it actually being relevant to my job). As excited as I am to see what is in store, I desire sleep more.

yea i don't think i'll make it to 3am either. almost finished this essay. I'll watch it when it's up for download or off the website.

it's hard to avoid all the news sites though!
don't forget this page:

I watched it live on my Apple TV and the stream was impressive. No break ups or dropouts at all.

Well I didn't get up at 3am to watch it live but a nice 5:30 wake up has had me finish it around 7:30 this morning. Overall I'm ok with the redesign except for the gradient filled bubbles in messages, go flat, that's fine but the gradient just made it hard to look at.

I'll probably out the dev build on my day to day iPhone 4, leaving the more stable iOS 6 on my iPad.

Not doubting the stream. My AppleTV has spotty wifi access and buffers a lot on Internet streaming.

Anyway, looks like ill have an interesting morning :)
