Live video stream of Apple’s September 1 event

* Apple Mac running Safari on Mac OS X 10.6
* Also can be accessed on an iPhone or iPod touch running iPhone OS/iOS 3.0 or higher or an iPad.

Basically it’s going to be streamed over HTML5, showcasing the standard that Apple chose for the iPhones and iPads over Flash.

Meanwhile, this week it was confirmed by Financial Times that Autodesk would be bringing AutoCad back to Macs. It’s a big deal since it dominates its market and is the first time AutoCad has been seen on Macs since the early ’90s. This is on par with Family Tree Maker for Mac 2011 coming back to Macs.

Update: I’ve posted my thoughts about the September Event over at Mobile Genealogy.
