Post Live iPhone 5 Announcements and Details ehMac Live Chat & Discussion

We'll be having a live ehMac iChat/Message Chat room to discuss the new iPhone 5 and other announcements as they happen today at 1PM ET / 10AM PST. (New iPad mini? iOS 6? Apple Hover Craft?) The room will be called "ehMac". You can get there by clicking here.

Or, in iChat of Messages, go to File --> Go to Chat Room... --> Type "ehMac"


In this thread, we'll (You, me, other ehMacians) will be posting highlights of the announcements and discussing our reactions more in-depth.

Can't wait to get me some Apple Keynote with some new goodies!

Device reservation system on Rogers My Account page currently brings up a blank page now. Perhaps they are updating for the iPhone 5 as well.

Going to Apple.com and doing an search for "iPhone-5" brings up some search results (With links not active yet) that confirm iPhone 5 name. Not that we were guessing..



PR Link to Apple's announcement will be here:

We're an hour and a half away and although it's quiet, there are 3 of us in the chat room already.

The room is called "ehMac". You can get there by clicking here. Or, in iChat of Messages, go to File --> Go to Chat Room... --> Type "ehMac"

Messages seems to be a bit different. I had to go to Messages --> Preferences --> Accounts --> Click the plus button to create a new "AIM" account, and use your regular iCloud login / password.

Does not work for me. It allows me to enter the room but refuses to allow me to post as it claims my password is incorrect, yet it activated when I entered the password which is definitely correct. Must be a Mountain Lion issue. I can iMessage anyone else with no trouble.

EDIT: I had to go to the file menu, then "Go to chat" and then enter ehmac to get in. There now OK.
