Apple amends WWDC keynote: now 90 min

updated 04:15 pm EDT, Tue April 17, 2007

WWDC keynote: 90 min

Apple has corrected an earlier post on its WWDC website which read that its keynote speech would span three hours, and is now reporting a keynote length of 1.5 hours. The Cupertino-based company's CEO, Steve Jobs, will address attendees at the Worldwide Developers Conference for 90 minutes, rather than the previously reported double-length of three hours. The confusion is attributed to a simple mistake in updating the official WWDC website, which caused heated speculation about what surprises might have laid in store for keynote attendees during such a lengthy presentation. Currently the keynote is scheduled to run on June 11th from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. Pacific time, instead of 9:00 a.m. to noon as was previously suggested.

    pendulum swings

    tons of posts accross the usual cast of characters rumor sites swung with the 3-hour news, claiming mac was back with the juice we have all been waiting for...the disappointments over Leopard and hardware delays were washed away....

    alas, never mind

    And I'd already asked for the day off. Well, I can look forward to grumbling about it not being a live stream on QuickTime.

    that's another thing, whatever happened to the technology of live streaming of apple events; instead, we read lines on a nice web page

    There's an easy, and obvious, answer to why they stopped the live streaming. It's very expensive to do and it doesn't actually work. There's just no way to get the bandwidth required to support the number of concurrent users for such an event. At least not yet.

    But, of course, people will complain about it being c*** with it's live, then complain about is being delayed when it's not. So how do you win?

    I don't care much about losing the live stream. It was always flaky anyway, at least for me. I was more excited about the prospect of a 3 hour keynote. I was looking forward to tons of tons of goodies being announced and showcased.

    1 1/2 hours is more normal, which means we'll likely only get an in-depth Leopard preview and the iPhone launch and not a whole lot more. *sigh*

    Whatever happened to Steve's statement back in January of "we've got a lot of great Mac products in store this year" ? We're almost one third through the year and nothing significant on the Mac front yet. Come on Steve, please don't let us down.

    apple never claimed 3h

    someone misread the chart -- apple never said the keynote lasted from 9-12.
