Apple to provide live video streaming of ‘Back to the Mac’ special event to Mac and iOS devices

Apple will broadcast its October 20 “Back to the Mac” event online using Apple’s industry-leading HTTP Live Streaming, which is based on open standards.

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. The live broadcast will begin at 10am PDT/1pm EDT on October 20, 2010 at http://www.apple.com/apple-events/october-2010/.

MacDailyNews Note: If you’re stuck on a Windows PC at work, don’t have an iOS device, or something equally horrific, we will be offer live notes of the event as well (link coming in a moment).

    Not horrific that you have older Macs. FWIW I retired my old G4 Tower that I used as a home media server this year for a MacMini. Obviously the new machine is faster, but it also doesn’t use as much electricity. It is hooked up to the TV and a monitor so it can be used as a media player for the TV and a standard computer. I therefore replaced 2 computers using one machine.

    Moving onto a new Intel based machine made everything more productive. You’ll know when you’re ready to trade up but I can tell you you will be very happy with a new laptop (from Apple anyway).

    I also have a MBP that I bought 3 years ago. It was a refurbished model and the previous generation and the price was a significant discount over the current models. Sure the speed wasn’t as great but it was much better than my earlier choices (a 17 inch G4 powerbook).
