Apple iPod and Music Meta-Liveblog Today, With Live Video Stream

Dear friends, we're going to be meta-liveblogging the Apple iPod music event. The actual mouth-flapping on stage starts 10:00 AM PT (1:00 PM ET), but the liveblogging fun starts way before that.

If you're unfamiliar with how our meta-liveblog works, we're going to be bringing the best text and images from MacWorld, MacLife, gdgt, the NYTimes and Ars Technica, consolidated for your convenience. Bookmark now to avoid disappointment later. [Gizmodo Live]

Update: Oh hello! Apple is going to stream the event live, to you, person of the internet. They claim you need an Apple-branded product, however, to view it, so it's unclear of normal folks or PC users using Safari in Windows can view it.

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™.

In any case, if that doesn't work, or if you want to at least pretend that you're doing work, our liveblog will be going on at live.gizmodo.com. And since it's streamed, we can most likely do a regular liveblog instead of a meta-liveblog, provided the stream isn't on a time-delay for cursing.
