Video Live Streaming:

As listed above, there are plenty of sources where you can get the live coverage of the Apple March 02 event via Live Blogs, but I was unable to get any Video source where we can access Live Streaming video of the whole event.

Unlike Google and Microsoft; Apple does not believe in live streaming its events, as we have seen in past. But Apple itself does have a page of their own to showcase events. It is possible that Apple will live stream this event owing to the hype and curiosity it has among the media and the people. Here is the page where you can check the live streaming on D-day.

Apple’s Events Page

If Apple does not live stream this event, you will definitely find the recording of the launch event on the above page uploaded after few hours of the iPad 2 event.

The event is set to take place at 10am PST (GMT-0800) on Wednesday March 2, 2011. So, bookmark your favourite website / blog from the list above or register at the links to get a reminder when the event kicks off.

Check out the timings below to see when the special event begins at your place:

08:00AM – Hawaii
10:00AM – Pacific

06:00PM – London

Actually Apple does believe in streaming their events out. The last several have been available from Apple.com for streaming a couple minutes after the official start time.
Even before that Apple has always had the gear in place for streaming but up until recently own did the streams to Apple campuses for the employees to enjoy.

Hopefully Apple has up’d their bandwidth so that world wide hit of everyone streaming the event gets decent speeds.
Fingers crossed
