After the apparent success of Apple's last live video streaming efforts, the company has decided to stream their "Back to the Mac" event later at 10am PST this morning. However, just like last time, you'll need an iOS or OS X device, like a MacBook or iPad, in order to actually watch the official Apple stream. Handy that SlashGear is still liveblogging the whole event at http://live.slashgear.com/, then, isn't it!
We'll also have analyst and SlashGear columnist Ben Bajarin around in our live comments system, ready to discuss everything Steve Jobs & Co. decide to bring on stage. A new MacBook Air range and OS X 10.6 "Lion" are both expected, together with iLife 2011, but there's still plenty of opportunity for a "one more thing" surprise.
So, it's Apple.com at 10am PST (1pm EST or 6pm London) for the live stream, and SlashGear's usual ebullient liveblog at http://live.slashgear.com/. The show kicks off in a little over two hours, with the usual hands-on goodness straight after.
