MacCentral readers have been clamoring for the promised video-on-demand archive of the Steve Jobs keynote address from
Macworld Expo in Tokyo, which is nowhere to be found this morning. Apple has yet to post a QuickTime stream of the event and hasn’t linked the page announcing the video to any of its regular locations.
“See the video-on-demand archive right here exclusively in QuickTime,” the
Apple keynote page
reads, but as of Thursday morning, no streaming file exists of the hour and 45 minute address. The keynote page is also not being linked from either
Apple’s home page,
Hot News page
where it has historically linked a keynote streaming feed announcement.
MacCentral readers wishing to view the main highlights of the keynote, can access selected
video cuts of the Jobs address exclusively on our Web site.
Unlike past keynote addresses that were broadcast either live or delayed, Apple did not release an official press statement of the Tokyo address archive in the U.S., although a press statement was released in Great Britain Wednesday referring to the Web page directly.
News of a planned video feed of the keynote
first surfaced last Friday
when MacCentral readers found a Web page posted on Apple’s servers confirming the address from Tokyo’s Makuhari Messe Event Hall. Within hours, the page had been removed, but was
with little fanfare and a change from a live stream to a stream-delayed archive.
An Apple spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
