How to watch the Apple iPhone 6 event live:
I never understand why Apple launches their products to an existing group only – you need to have an Apple product to watch the event live. I rant about that on my WTF Apple post…. *sigh*
There is now an Apple page with a countdown clock that seems like I can access via my dare-I-say-it Windows machine. However, there fine print says:
Live streaming video requires Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.

So perhaps running Safari on a Windows machine will allows us to watch the event at it unfolds?
If not, than alas we would have to resort to reading about it a split-second later from thousands of sources who are live blogging and tweeting from the event.
