apple’s “it’s showtime” event
September 12, 2006
Today’s the day for Apple’s long-awaited “It’s Showtime” press event, which begins promptly at 10:00 AM PDT (1:00 PM EDT). Engadget and AppleInsider will both be blogging the event live, so do follow that if you’re interested in up-to-the-second Jobsian utterances. I’ll have a roundup of whatever comes out of the event as soon after 3:00 PM EDT as I can manage (events have conspired to cause me to miss this one, unfortunately). In the meantime, you may wish to check out this MacRumors thread for rumors, pontifications, and all such foolishness.
Update 1:39 AM: http://www.apple.com/movies/ currently displays a “do not have permission” message rather than the “were you looking for something?” page that other nonexistent subpages display (see here). Yet more evidence for an iTunes movie store, especially noting that http://www.apple.com/music/ redirects to the iTunes page.
Update 9:59 AM: The iTunes Music Store is down.
Update 4:57 PM: Apple has posted an on-demand stream of the event, viewable here, though it’s currently unavailable due to “exceptional demand.” Ah, Mac fans.
