For all the Apple fans in the region, we have some good news. Tonight’s Apple event is going to streamed live by Apple which hasn’t happened for over five years. Thats right, we will no longer be at the mercy of the refresh button and timeouts on blogs that cover Apple events.

Of course, being Apple, it does come with a catch- “Viewing requires either a Mac running Safari on Mac OS X version 10.6 Snow Leopard, an iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or higher, or an iPad.” What this means is that our PC and Android fans that don’t own an iDevice will probably be out of luck.

I wonder what has made Apple change its mind about streaming events. Will it be related to some kind of streaming service that they will be announcing tonight? Or was it the overload of their network at the iPhone4 event that caused the mightily iPhone4 to misbehave during its moment of glory?

Whatever, the case, I’m glad this is happening. Be sure to stick to your Mac, iPod or iPad screen tonight at 9PM UAE time. And feel free to comment on what you think will be introduced tonight. Rumors suggest that a new iPod and possibly a new Apple TV along with Netflix which sadly does not officially work in the region.
