Good morning!
7:50 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Wondering whether you can watch Apple's live stream of the event Click here in the browser you'll be using. If it doesn't work, don't cry just yet–there might be some other solutions soon.

9:08 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
We've all been discussing this amongst ourselves, but it's very strange that Apple decided to stream this event, seeing as they haven't streamed an event in so many years. What are they trying to do? Is it about making sure people see and hear exactly what they said, instead of being filtered through the press? Do they just want to try out some new technology and infrastructure?
9:16 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
Speaking of streaming, it's going to be very interesting seeing what Apple comes up with, now that Google TV is a thing–a thing that exists. I don't know if they can just rely on Apple/iTunes content without being able to drag in other parts of the internet.
9:18 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
What they really need to do is have much more interoperability between AppleTV/iTV, iPads and iPhones. Imagine set items in Dungeon Siege or Torchlight. They're good on their own, but when you have more than one, or even the entire set, you get bonuses. Give people bonuses for owning more of your equipment lines, and you'll be selling more.
9:21 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
Chances of this happening: Doubtful. But this is going to be my reaction if it does.

9:23 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
And if you don't get what that last gaming analogy meant, imagine having boots, and chest armor, and a helmet. Each are good, but if you own all 3 in a set, you get a forcefield. Or a flaming sword. Except in this specific case, it'd be something much lamer.
9:25 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
People are still lingering outside the event. Nobody's being let in yet. Bald count, who knows.

Jason Chen:
Out of those five choices, I think Gaga is the likeliest. Then again, maybe Jewel too.
9:44 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
People are starting to be let in, starting with broadcast first. Because if you don't, someone's going to get smashed with a giant camera.
9:46 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
The stream's starting! People are filing in and getting seated.
9:48 AM ON SEP 1 2010

10:08 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
Today they're announcing iOS 4.1. "A lot of bugs have been fixed. Proximity sensor bugs, Bluetooth bugs, iPhone 3G performance bugs. All the bugs we get mails on."
10:08 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
They're also adding HDR photos (High Dynamic Range photos), standard in 4.1. The ability to upload HD video over Wi-Fi.
10:08 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
Also, TV show rentals and Game Center.
10:09 AM ON SEP 1 2010

So what's up with High Dynamic Range photos? Jobs is going to explain.
10:09 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
When you switch on HDR, it takes three separate photos: One regular exposure, one under exposed shot, and one over exposed shot. They keep both the normal photo and the HDR photo, which is combined from all 3 exposures.

10:10 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Another thing is Game Center. It's both an API to allow developers to put multiplayer into their games, as well as an app by itself. Think Xbox Live for Xbox 360.

"Now how do we make this better? The iPod nano has been super popular. We'd like to make it smaller, and we'd like to make it better."
10:25 AM ON SEP 1 2010

Jason Chen:
So what did they do? They've made the iPod nano multitouch and gotten rid of the clickwheel.
10:25 AM ON SEP 1 2010

It's pretty strange that there's both a shuffle and a nano now, when they're almost exactly the same size. The only difference is that there's a screen on the nano.
