I'm guessing just about everyone on the planet is awaiting the release of the new iPhone. Well maybe not EVERYONE :) - I'm sure there are plenty of HTC incredible people out there quite happily ignoring the new release. Personally I'm excited to get the scoop and see what Steve has to say about it all - you have to wonder if he will make any reference to the leak by Gizmodo and then the following leak from Vietnam.

Through all this I'm wondering why there is no (obviously and legally) available video or audio streams available? You'd imagine it might possibly increase awareness of the event - have those people on the fence about the whole thing sit in just for giggles to see what all the chatter is about. It's possible that paid tickets and the exclusivity of it is Apple's reason for keeping the cover over things. Reading tweets and blog posts is well just not as exciting as seeing the event unfold, with your own eyes or ears.

You have to wonder if making an audio or video feed available would be more profitable - even by adding basic Google Adsense code to the page and making some income that way - considering the numbers of people that would login to view it? Would there be some value to having people sign up (with email verification) to view such a video? Wouldn't you think that'd be a very easy way for Apple to grab another Gazillion email addresses (even if they were all Hotmail junk emails).

Anyway - it'll be interesting to see how things unfold. We are WSI WebStrategies are psyched!
