Four days after removing a reader-found Web page confirming a QuickTime stream of Steve Jobs’ upcoming Tokyo keynote address,
reposted the same page, but has made no official announcement.
The keynote will be streamed on a delayed, archived basis. As a result, when it will be available for playback is not known. Last Friday when Apple initially announced plans to stream the event, the address was to have been broadcast via a live stream. The stream will be a first for the Tokyo Macworld show, which will take place February 22nd through 24th. Industry analysts speculate Jobs will use the keynote to debut new consumer products, possibly including a new line of iMac systems.
