Forget the WWDC! WE’RE broadcasting live from the TMBG!

Sure, pretty much ANY Mac site can give you live streams from the World Wide Developers Conference, but how many can give you live updates from… The They Might Be Giants Concert at the Appel Farm Arts and Music Center in beautiful Elmer NJ!?! That’s right, (barring any technical difficulties) we’ll be broadcasting live updates from the concert as it happens.

While we expect very few iPhone-related announcements, you never know. Apple is a very secretive company, and this music festival’s name “Appel” seems a bit too close to “Apple” to be simply a coincidence – especially so close to WWDC. So we figured we better check it out. Our guts tells us John and John may not announce the 3G iPhone, but there’s a good chance they will focus extensively on Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard”. Check back for updates.
