Apple Event Goes Live Today

Might Apple be sweating the introducion of its' new, smaller iPad? Fretting it has priced the item too high? Or finally answering charges that the cultish company only preaches to the choir?

For a change, Apple will stream the introduction of the new tablet product (and maybe even more) in a special channel accessible to all. The show starts today at 1 p.m. East Coast time, and it's happening right here. You have to be using an Apple device and the Safari browser to view it -  Safari 4 with  Mac OS X or 10.6 or 2nd/3rd generation Apple TV.
