Apple has announced that it will broadcast today’s iPod event live over the Internet. According to the press release, Apple will use its “industry-leading HTTP Live Streaming,” which is based on open standards, to provide a live video stream of the event, being held at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco. Apple notes that the broadcast requires either a Mac running Safari on Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard, an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or higher, or an iPad. Apple’s special event will begin today at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time/1:00 Eastern Time.

Funny the announcement: open standards that require Safari on the Mac…
Super FAIL on this matter again

@Simonne: No, the statement is correct because there are many other browsers some can have on their Macs.  Maybe someone uses parallel desktop and want to go virual over the IE and a mac to the streaming part.  So,.. this clarification was correct.

@dennis - I read Simone’s statement as a fail when using the HTTP “open” video standard but being limited to only Apple products to view it on. Not really so “open” now, is it?

It’s an open standard but has only been implemented in Apple products so far.  That’s the reason for the Apple requirement.
