On September 1st Apple is holding a press conference. It’ll most likely be talking about iPods and there are rumors of other items being released (like an updated Apple TV).
Onto the choice bits. Apple said it will be live-streaming the event using ‘open standards’. But the catch is you can only watch the live-stream on an Apple product running iOS 3 or 4, in the Snow Leopard operating system running Safari.
WTF? Why even bother saying “open standards” if you are employing it in a fashion that a vast majority of the internet connected populace can’t use? I can’t even watch this live-stream on my Mac Book Pro because I ONLY have OSX 10.5. I might be able to watch it on my iPhone if the 3G connection down here in the OBX works for me than two minutes.
In all, it’s contrived double-speak of Microsoft proportions.
They really should run for some government positions at this point given the shit that dribbles out of their mouths.
