9 Live Blogs to Check Out for Macworld Keynote Coverage

by Tanner Godarzi Jan 11, 2008

Bummed about not being able to go to Macworld but want to follow the action? No problem, many blogs will cover the event, and here they are.


One of the more popular live Blogs to follow, Mac Rumors offers extensive minute-by-minute coverage of the keynote action. There is also no need to refresh your browser, as updates are served via AJAX every minute. Alternatively, you can receive updates via SMS (leveraging Twitter), and the sign up page is here.

In addition, an iPhone/iPod Touch friendly page will be available for those following the keynote on the go, like me.



The boys at Engadget tend to cover all Apple events, and Macworld is no different. The only downside to Engadget’s live blogging is that the post does not auto refresh and new updates appear at the bottom. However, they have more than enough power to keep the blog up while waves of users check for Macworld updates.

In addition to Engadget, TUAW and Gizmodo should be covering Macworld as well. You’ll want to check back frequently; TUAW and Gizmodo function the same as Engadget when it comes to live blogging, but it doesn’t hurt to have extra tabs open because other web sites can stall due to traffic overload.

  • Macworld will be doing live coverage of the event, as we have with every Apple event in the last eight or so years… I’m not sure why you guys never remember us.
