Don't want to be a downer, but maybe Apple isn't all that keen on many people seeing this keynote... I mean, consider these facts and possible implications:
1) It wasn't confirmed that Jobs was actually delivering the keynote until later than usual. Maybe they weren't sure the only product they have to announce (the miniPods) would be ready.
2) There is no obvious QuickTime stream in place yet.
3) There is no big MacWorld promotion at www.apple.com,
no "you ain't seen nothin' yet", "9 days and counting" hype.
4) Apart from miniPods, the rumors of "new" products amount to software updates only. The rumor sites may be quiet NOT because Apple is good at keeping a secret, but there are no secrets to keep.
Being pessimistic, the keynote may only consist of progress reports (x million tunes downloaded, 500K G5s sold, 45% of sales were laptops, etc), iLife updates, and the cheaper 'Pod(s).
That last one may be moderating interesting from an "Apple is getting successful" point of view, but personally, as I've already been a buyer of a 1st gen iPod and a 3rd gen iPod, I could care less about a storage-challenged one, and care more about Mac
I very much hope I'm wrong, but as an Australian, I'm not going to be getting up at 4 am for this one. (Just hoping to read how wrong I was on front page news at breakfast!)
