I can’t help myself. I’m an Apple keynote addict. I would do most anything to be up-to-date on exactly what’s happening when a Steve-led keynote is taking place. And right now, as I write this, one is happening. I am literally switching between the window where I’m entering this text and the window that is keeping me up to date on what the His Steveness is saying.
The funny thing is that there is no video or audio feed for this keynote. Usually Apple broadcasts the keynote live so people can watch it remotely. No such luck here. It’s taking place in Paris, France at 10am, so it began at 1am Pacific Time.
But that can’t stop me.
I found a chatroom where people were discussing the keynote, some pretending to actually be there until the truth was discovered. Someone pointed out a fairly obscure little page that updated itself automatically every three minutes and contained up-to-date information about what was going on. I’ve been watching text on a webpage update slowly for the last hour and 20 minutes. Yes, I’m that helpless. I’m up past 2am watching text on a website update itself every three minutes.
Do me a favor and head over to Apple.com, just to see what we introduced. Maybe that’ll make me feel better about lost sleep. 🙂
