It's time to sit back with a glass or mug of your favorite beverage and enjoy an hour of time travel, back to the days of the early 1990s when dinosaurs roamed the Earth in the guise of Macs running System 7. Regretfully, I have to let you know that I will not be sitting behind the console of a state-of-the-art Quadra 950 -- instead, I'll be showing you all of the highlights of System 7.5.3 through the magic of emulation.
If you decide that you'd like to try this at home, I'll be providing some helpful URLs and tips during the show. It's a lot of fun, and serves as a reminder of just how far technology has come over the past 20 years.
Below, you'll find a Ustream livestream viewer and a chat tool. The chat tool allows you to participate by asking questions or making comments. You can also choose to watch the show on Justin.tv if you wish, by visiting our portal at http://justin.tv/tuawtvlive. In either case, you'll be watching the show in glorious HD!
If you're driving somewhere and would like to watch TUAW TV Live while you're stuck in traffic, please don't -- keep your eyes on the road! However, if someone else is doing the driving, you can watch the show on your iPhone and join the chat by downloading the free Ustream App. It's a universal app and is wonderful on an iPad, both for viewing and participating in the chat.
We'll start at about 5 PM ET, so if you're seeing a prerecorded show, be sure to refresh your browser until you see the live stream. For those of you who are not able to join us for the live edition, you'll be able to view it later this evening on our TUAW Video YouTube channel and as part of the TUAW TV Live podcast viewable in iTunes or on any of your Apple devices.
