WWDC 2009 Live Stream

Written By Unknown on Monday, June 8, 2009 | 4:02 AM


Today is the big day, Apple is going to be doing a live coverage of WWDC 2009. Apple does not allow video/audio streams of WWDC 2009, they just have never allowed this. People are allowed to do live blogging though, so Macrumors Live, Engadget, Gdgt, Gizmodo, and Crunchgear will all be covering this event live. I will be watching the live streams and trying to update this post with important information from WWDC 2009. Feel free to watch this page for updates.  I definitely think there will be a new iPhone, but there have also been rumors of a Macbook tablet too. What do you think Apple will be announcing? Leave a comment.
