Update x2: iLounge editors have spotted several people in Barbarian Group t-shirts outside the event, lending credence to prior rumors that the company’s popular Magnetosphere iTunes visualizer may appear in a new version of iTunes. In addition, they note that the crowd outside the event is extremely light, with Apple employees currently outnumbering non-Apple attendees.

Update: iLounge editors are now on-site in preparation for today’s event. We will be updating our Flickr page with more photos from event, and will be switching over to our streamlined event page at approximately 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time.

iLounge will be on-site at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco to provide live coverage of Apple’s “Let’s Rock” special event. Apple is widely expected to announce new iPods at the event, which is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time tomorrow. As we have done in the past, will take you to our streamlined special event page starting an hour or so before the event.

I’m a fan of the HD iPods not only because of their capacity but also because of their sound quality. I A-B’ed my Classic and 3rd gen Nano and my aging ears can indeed tell a difference.

SO where’s the live site? The same old home page comes up.

Yeah I think it’s the browser. I switched quickly to Safari and the coverage is there.

Posted by Pilot on September 9, 2008 at 10:15 AM (PDT)


I’m still seeing the same page, I use IE???? anyone else have the same problem????

Posted by Darwin on September 9, 2008 at 10:19 AM (PDT)


I just figured out you need to go to in your browser, not just refresh the iLounge site.  Try it.
