We’re (CNET) bringing you live coverage of Apple’s rock ‘n’ roll-themed event, which kicked off in San Francisco just after 10 a.m. Pacific time. We’ll be updating this page with live updates right here as it unfolds–with newest updates at the top of the page.
11:16 a.m.: He thanks everyone for coming. That’s the end, folks. We’ll have continuing coverage including reviews of the new devices coming later today from CNET’s Donald Bell and plenty of video and further analysis from CNET News. Thanks for joining us!
11:15 a.m.: Norah Jones concludes her performance. The lights are back up and Steve’s on stage.
11:11 a.m.: Jones says: “Thanks to Steve Jobs for having us. Really happy to see he’s doing well.” Now we get a preview of a song from her upcoming album called “Young Blood.”
11:06 a.m.: Now Jobs is talking music. “It’s the primary reason we do this.” Live performance coming up. It’s Norah Jones.
People clap, but there seems to be some palpable disappointment for those expecting a Beatle or Coldplay, which were some of the rumors. She starts with “Come Away with Me.”
