It Begins: Apple Online Store Goes Down, Streaming Confirmed For Today's Event

Apple's October event is creeping ever closer, and now the Cupertino, Calif. company has closed its Apple Online Store while also confirming that the iPad-themed media event will indeed be live streamed both online and to Apple TVs. The news comes following the appearance of an "Apple Events" channel on Apple TVs around the world. As such, a few hours ago we guessed that Apple was planning on offering a live video stream of its media event; according to the company's recently updated website, this is now confirmed to be the case. Apple explains online:
Watch streaming video from this special event and learn more about our exciting announcements.

Live Streaming video requires Safari 4 or later on OS X v10.6 or later; Safari on iOS 4.2 or later. Streaming via Apple TV requires second- or third-generation Apple TV with software 5.0.2 or later.

As such, here at AppAdvice we're now wondering if Apple's forthcoming event could be used to announce more than the new iPads and Mac hardware we've been expecting. Given that long-rumored Apple products include an Apple HDTV and an iWatch, it may be that a real surprise is in the pipeline. Here's hoping! Check on our main page for more last-minute news as we receive it. We'll also be running a live blog throughout Apple's media event, which is set to begin at 10 a.m. PDT.
