Mac Rumors Live rocks as place to watch Steve Jobs keynotes

For watching a live keynote, my son and I agree, Mac Rumors Live was — by far — the best place to watch the keynote. You didn’t need to refresh the page. Everything just came to you live.

Of course we had several computers all updating to various sites just to make sure we didn’t miss anything, but MacRumorsLive had it all and faster than other sites.

Now I know why Patrick spends so much time on the Mac Rumors forums.

    apologies, my EVDO started getting spotty about 5 minutes from the end which meant I couldnt wrap it up (indeed it dropped completely while the guy was singing).

  3. Arrgh, I tried to get onto Macrumors in the 1/2 hour prior to the keynote, and couldn’t get on. My loss. I knew they were on Twitter, which of course got smoked.
    Of the others? Gizmodo did the best job compared to Engadget, TechCrunch, and MacWorld, in my observation.

    But man, Twitter needs to get its act together before SXSW.

  5. @David from Sweden : I think you start expecting too much from a MacWorld Keynote. When you look at the past, there was not that much MacWorlds with the killing One More Thing.
    Come on, here’s what we’ve got today :
    - a new WiFi + Backup hard-drive box, entirely designed to work with Leopard transparently. It just works.
    - GPS-like solution on the iPhone.
    - AppleTV 2.0 + movie rentals right out of the box.
    - a paradigm-shifting laptop computer, paving the way for even breakthrough products this year.

    Because, when you look after Apple since Steve Jobs’s return 10 years ago, the Product Roadmap is just amazingly well designed.

    You want a MacTouch ? I bet this will be the next iMac revision. Which couldn’t be introduced today, nor the supposed-to-be MacTablet, because it’s too early both for the company itself (ever heard of canibalization and revenue generation ?) and the consumers (ever heard of Loëwy’s MAYA principle ?).

    Wait a couple of months, and you’ll get your MacTouch, granted.

  9. I was watching on MacRumors and the arstechnica.com IRC #mwsf channel. The IRC channel had more coverage, and much faster coverage, than the MacRumors page, but of course, no images.
    I’ll stick with the IRC.

  11. Completely agree, I had TechCrunch, Gizmodo, Engadget, and MacRumors all up. The only one that survived the entire event was MacRumors. On top of that, I loved the auto update, and the separation of images and text updates.

  13. Yeah thanks to you and macrumorslive! I could enjoy the keynote in sweden almost live. Still a bit disappointed about the keynote. Sure, a new macbook (thinnest in the world). I could almost expect that from APPLE. Not so much news about the iPods or iPhones. The ATV sounds nice but probably not available here in Sweden as usual. I missed the “just one more thing” and the 3G iphone and a better camera on the iphone. Well i missed a lot of things. Maybe we are getting spoiled?

  15. Yep, I definitely agree with that, had my laptop setup beside me with it updating, plus was one of the few sites that was actually useable! Most others just seemed to die with the extreme load.
