The MacWorld Expo kicks off in San Francisco tomorrow with Steve Jobs’ keynote address at around 9 AM PST (noon EST). Those of you who are interested in up-to-the-minute reports on the announcements from Apple will not be able to watch it live, but you can visit sites like the Mac News Network [] for reports from the auditorium.

Apple will broadcast the video of the keynote over the Internet starting in the afternoon, but you should expect it to be flaky due to the sheer volume of people who will try to get onto the site at that time. (Yes, there really are that many who are that interested.) You should wait until late at night, or even until the weekend, to join them.

As for announcements, well, the shroud of secrecy is intact and there has been nothing but rumors. As is my policy, I won’t share those here, but there are more than enough sources willing to indulge the speculative.

After the event, I will post a summary of any announcements that I deem worthy of your time. As I’ve mentioned before, if you’re in the market for new Apple hardware, you should wait until after this event to make a decision.
