At around 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. ET), CEO Tim Cook will go on stage at Apple's Cupertino, Calif. headquarters to prove that the tech giant still has the mojo to make killer products. The company is widely expected to show off its new lines of iPhones -- a top-of-the-line "iPhone 5S" and a cheaper "iPhone 5C" -- which should go on sale in the coming weeks.
So where can an overcaffeinated Apple fanboy get up-to-the-millisecond coverage of the new gold-colored casings and fingerprint technology that could do away with passcodes? Your best bet is to watch the Apple event live on the company's website. If Apple decides not to livestream the event, as they have occasionally done in the past, USTREAM is a good place to look for unofficial livestreams from Cupertino.
In the absence of a video stream, The Verge, Engadget and Gizmodo historically have had great liveblogs. We'll also be liveblogging the event ourselves as it happens, which you can check out below. And of course, check out HuffPost Tech for full coverage of the every new product announced.
UPDATE: The event is over. Check out all of the coverage from HuffPost Tech below:

NYMag's Kevin Roose On Whether Apple Can Turn Finger Print Scanning Technology Into A Thing
From New York Magazine:
A handful of device makers have tried to make fingerprint-authentication happen for people who aren't shuffling around millions of dollars every day. And they've been greeted with a unified meh. Ordinary users, it seems, would rather type in a passcode than fiddle with a fingerprint scanner, even if it means their information is more easily accessed by people who aren't them.

More Details On The iPhone 5S
The iPhone 5S will be the same size as its predecessor, the iPhone 5, with a 4-inch screen. Big screens are all the rage these days, and Apple is rumored to be working on phones with larger screens, but physically, the iPhone 5S looks very similar to last year's model.
The phone includes Apple's new A7 64-bit chip, and Apple describes the 5S as the "world's first and only smartphone" with a 64-bit chip. Phil Schiller, announcing the new phone, described the device's CPU and graphics as twice as fast in speed as the iPhone 5. The chip also packs a series of other performance and graphics enhancements. In addition to the A7, the phone includes the M7 motion coprocessor. The M7 "continuously measures motion data," and includes the phone's accelerometer, gyroscope and compass.
