News Flash: Jobs kills realtime feed of Macworld keynote speech?For the first time in several years, Apple Computer may not provide a live feed of its opening keynote presentation at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco.
Apple chief executive Steve Jobs, reportedly miffed over a series new product leaks, has abruptly pulled the plug on the realtime webcast and satellite broadcast of his Macworld Expo keynote, according to an Apple memo forwarded to the MacInTouch website.
The message reads, in part, \"Apple will not be making satellite coordinates available. Although the keynote WILL be available on our web site - it will NOT be available until sometime AFTER the keynote is over. They do NOT have a time determined, so it may not be immediately after the keynote is over. \"
For the past several years, Apple has provided its loyal fans and customers with a webcast video stream of Jobs\' Macworld keynote speeches. The company has also broadcasted the event at its retail stores through satellite.
Inquires at several Apple retail stores confirm that, sadly, no broadcast is scheduled to take place next Tuesday; leaving all those who are unable to attend the expo — as well as the millions of folks who do not read Apple rumor sites — on the edge of their seats for at least a couple hours longer.
