It’s showtime, baby. Game on. Dear Leader is providing live blogging coverage here

T minus one hour and counting: Game changer

Read all about it here.  The 10 ways the new Apple tablet will change your life forever. SFO, we are now on final approach.

T minus two hours and counting: JoT

T minus three hours and counting: Is this it?

Latest potentially fake-or-not image.  We’ll know soon enough.

T minus four hours and counting: Haters emerge

Sam Gustin is a writer for a website called DailyFinance. Seems like an amiable chap. Sam has decided to ingratiate himself to every Apple fan in the world by penning an opus titled “Apple Tablet: 10 Things We (Already Hate) About You.” Comments include “The first version of an Apple product is usually buggy.” OK, I’ll give him that. Hello, Leopard OS I bought October 27th, 2007?

Other remarks include “Something better is coming,” “You’re just going to break it, anyway,” (With that logic, why buy a Porsche?) and “Apple also built the world’s most infamous paperweight.”

My favorite, though, and totally contrary to doctrine: “You do not need to buy a new gadget every time Steve Jobs tells you to.”

Moshe has been diverted from his SFO flight to investigate.

Klaatu Barada Nikto: The day the Earth stood still

In cities all over the world, today is developing as any other day.  Kids are going off to school, corporate execs are boarding commuter trains, the birds will chirp, babies will cry, lovers will love and dreamers will dream.

Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Dear Leader will unveil his Greatest Creation.  A mere five hours from now.

And a decade from now, you’ll ask a friend, “Do you remember where you were…that day?”

Where will you be in five hours?

Flat-Out Flashback: Sunday, January 6, 2002

That night, TIME blew the lid off the new iMac announcement set for the next day. Could history repeat itself?

Update for the 27th, you say?

Get the Engadget story here. It seems there’s a placeholder on the Apple iPhone Developer Program License Agreement and it says “Need to update this for the 27th launch.” Wonder what they mean by that.

Jack gets the iSlate

Jack Bauer, the man who can destroy anything and usually does on his show 24, looks to be getting an iSlate to use on the show. Hopefully he won’t kill it.
