Starting at 10 AM PST, Wednesday March 7, 2012, Apple fanboys and tech news fanatics will be scouring the Internet for every scrap and morsel falling from the keyboards of the journalists attending the iPad 3 (or the iPad HD if you believe the rumors) event that Apple is holding at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Unfortunately, just like the last Apple press event, the one thing that they will most likely not find is a live video stream of the Apple iPad event.
Although Apple always posts high-definition video from the keynote events on its website afterwards, the last time that Apple live streamed an event was in 2010. A few reporters have tried to stream audio or video from the event, however they have allegedly been blacklisted by Apple’s PR folks from then on.
These sites have confirmed that they will be live blogging the Apple iPad 3 event:
These sites usually live blog Apple events, but they have not confirmed yet:
Emily Dreyfuss, from CNET, plans on trying to sneak into the Apple event, so if all of the other sites are bogged down, that should be entertaining. Also, apparently Financial Post has worked out the kinks in their Mr Fusion powered Delorean, because they have posted tomorrow’s Apple iPad 3 live blog today! They will be covering the event tomorrow again, as well. The Motley Fool will also be live blogging the Apple iPad press conference discussing what the event means for investors.
Here are the times that the Apple event will be held in your time zones:
07:00AM – Hawaii
10:00AM – Pacific
11:00AM – Mountain
12:00PM – Central
01:00PM – Eastern
