    Thanks for the info! I'll be watching the video feed. Are we having iPTF coverage like we did last time or not?

    I could be wrong, but I think that's wrong. I believe Tokyo time it would be 3:00AM. Tokyo is GMT+9. The event is 10:00AM at GMT-8. This means to work it out you add 17 hours on. 10+17=27. 27-24=3:00AM the next day.
    I can understand not including the time zone I live in (GMT+7), but not including GMT+10 is quite an oversight.

    To all east coast Australian viewers: it's at 4:00AM. Being a Queenslander, I don't use daylight savings (thank god), and so I haven't got a clue how to calculate what time it is for those of you who do use it. You'll have to adjust for that if you use it. Central Australian just subtract half an hour (3:30AM), Western Australia just subtract 2 hours (2:00AM)

    I got the times from Engadget, but what you said makes sense. They could have got it wrong.

    I've added the Australian times and changed the Japanese one.

    Don't expect the video feed to last, because it will be shut down.
    Edit: Also, macrumorslive.com won't be active as far as I know, because they don't get invites to these types of events, so they just do twitter and post stuff on the main site.
