Good Morning/Afternoon Everyone!


Welcome to our live coverage of Apple's iPhone Announcement.


There are some great sites to watch the event live.  I am keeping

an eye on Engadget and The Verge.


The post above this one will list all the announcements as they
happen so I can keep a running total of all the new stuff in one

place.  Of course, what follows here will be reactions from the
membership which I look forward to reading.

Hi everyone. I've got the TWiT live puppet show air-playing to my Apple TV on the big screen. Also watching Engadget live blog.


Here's hoping for some kind of surprise.


Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.
