ipad mini invite

With Apple's 2012 October Media event kicking off on Tuesday, some users are interested in avoiding all of the announcements and waiting until Apple posts the recorded video of the event so as to experience it without already knowing the outcome.

For those individuals, we've posted this news story, which will be updated with the link to the presentation once it becomes available from Apple. No other news stories or announcements will be displayed alongside this story.

Users waiting for the video to be posted are welcome to gather in the thread associated with this news story, and we ask that those who follow the events refrain from making any posts in the thread about tomorrow's announcements.

Update: A live stream is available for the event. We will also post the archived stream here after the event is over.

Update: The 72-minute media event has been posted.

Isn't calling it the "iPad Mini" event already a spoiler? :D

I'm confused about the spoiler-free part. So basically it would report on the keynote without any mention of what's being presented, such as this?

Tim Cook takes the stand.

"I'm here to introduce the **********. It's revolutionary. It's made out of ******* and ****** and it's only **mm thick."

Wow... Sounds awesome.

why dont apple live stream??

why not use the fact that itunes is in EVERY home to have a propaganda channel for apple ads, apple product launches etc. and stream live.

imagine how many of us would (i'm in australia) wake up at 3 in the morning, switch on our atv and watch live on the apple launch channel... they do live streaming for others, why not themselves?? i think their data centre could handle it. if not, just turn off the maps server for a couple of hours. noone will notice the difference...

I for one always appreciate these threads and use them every keynote!

For people that dont "get" it, the point of these is to bookmark them before the event and then after the live announcement you just go straight to them and then you're able to watch the keynote unspoiled without having to go to the main page and seeing the news. It's like a safe bunker from the apocalypse.

Where I live, the keynote is 3am so I just wake up around 7am and refresh these threads until the keynote is live and avoid the rest of the internet in the meantime. Then once I've watched the keynote, go to the Apple website and look at the porn shots and full specs.

Then go onto the forums and read all the reactions and salty Fandroid tears

Too many ******s nowadays, that has to spoil the fun.
