Live pre-event updates from Apple’s Rock and Roll event
iLounge editors are now on-site outside the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in preparation for Apple’s Rock and Roll media event. Currently, there is a light crowd of journalists outside the venue, and two tables set up with white MacBooks for media and guest registration, which begins at 9:00. We will be updating this story—and our Flickr photostream—continually until we switch over to our Live Event page several minutes before the event starts at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
Update 9:01: iLounge editors have received their media badges for entry into the event, and continue to wait outside as the crowd builds. While waiting, they also spotted Greg Grunberg from the NBC series Heroes; continue reading to see more pictures from outside the event.
Update 9:23: Representatives from both Nike and Pandora have been spotted outside the event.
