The Highs and Lows of the PSX 2016 Keynote

The PlayStation Experience has come and gone for another year, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t bring some good and some not so good stuff with it. As with last year’s keynote, PlayStation came in swinging and left the room full of PlayStation fans impressed for the most part. Granted there were a few moments where it seemed Sony might be dropping the ball, but they quickly made up for it by doing what Sony does best: cater to their audience. And with that, let’s take a look at what the internet thought was the greatest thing of all time, and what was the worst thing to ever happen ever. Hyperbole is fun! Hit the jump to read on or watch the showcase yourself below!

Apple to, once again, live stream today’s keynote

Apple to, once again, live stream today’s keynote

It seems like the ongoing trend for Apple to live stream their keynotes on their website for free. I guess it’s an easy way to show off new technologies.  During the last live streamed keynote, there were a few lag spikes and feed drops, but still, it was very enjoyable to watch Mr. Jobs do what he does best – wear a black turtle neck and jeans.

The rumors circulating about what will be announced today at 10am (Pacific) in the nerd world are as follows:

  • Verizon getting an iPhone (finally)
  • New MAC OSX (maybe Liger edition? It would come with skills and magic)
  • New Macbook Air
  • iLife ’11

Again, those are just rumors. Watch the live stream here at 10am (Pacific). Also, just like before, you need to be using Safari 4 or 5 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Safari on iOS 3 or later to watch it. That’s just how Apple likes to roll.

Apple to livestream September music event

Apple to livestream September music event

Update: Direct link to the stream

Yep, you read that right. For the first time in a long while, Apple will livestream it’s music event, today – 1st of September – at 10AM PDT. That’s 5PM GMT for those that want to work it out for their own time zone.

Great I hear you say – where can I get it. Simple, just point your browser at Apple.com and you’ll be acoustic-rocking. One small snag however, there’s a strict door policy to this here club. You have to be running a Mac with OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and be running Safari or holding an iOS3+ device in your palms. Yes that’s right, PC users, sorry you’re out; PPC Mac users, yep, sorry you’re out too and anyone not updated to at least iOS 3.0 on their iPhone, iPod touch or iPad (where have you been?!) you’re out of luck too.
