Back To The Mac Event: Live Stream for Apple Devices Only

By Alan Ng - Oct 20, 2010

We have some good news for those of you planning to tune into Apple’s upcoming ‘Back to the Mac’ event, as the company has just confirmed that they will be providing a live stream for the event.

As reported from Apple Insider, the stream will be available on in a few hours time, and just like their previous iPod event, it will only be available for iOS devices and on Mac computers running Safari on OS X 10.6.

This means that those of you without an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad will not be able to watch a live stream, unless someone takes the Apple’s stream and redistributes it of course.

Apple were also keen to point out that their stream will be broadcast using “industry-leading HTTP Live Streaming” technology, meaning that the quality is likely to be top notch for those tuning in on mobile devices.

What are your thoughts on this? Are non-Apple device users upset about this, or are you happy to tune into a live blog? You can see our live stream and live blogs roundup here.
