Apple will broadcast its September 1 event online using Apple’s industry-leading HTTP Live Streaming, which is based on ” open standards.”

Apple had sent out invitations and its  e-mail included an acoustic guitar with a sound hole in the shape of an Apple logo, alluding to the music-themed nature of Apple’s annual iPod-centric event.
That same graphic is now posted outside San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the same location that has hosted the event for years.

LIMITATIONS:
Viewers 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.
Other platforms – Windows, Symbian, BlackBerry, Android, WebOS : NOT Available

The live broadcast will begin at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT on September 1, 2010 at www.apple.com.  As usual, I will be staying up to follow this event on my  iMac

What can we expect ?

– New iPod Touch with Retina display and front/back cameras for Facetime usage
