Apple breaks with tradition this year, delivering its first quarter 2003 financial results conference over a week later than its Macworld Expo San Francisco keynote speech.

The company traditionally presents its results in a closed session on the night preceding the San Francisco keynote. This year, Apple's first quarter fortunes will be divulged January 15, 2003, though the date is "subject to change", according to a note on Apple's Web site.

A QuickTime webcast will be available of the event from Apple's Web site. This takes place at 2pm Pacific Time (10pm UK time). It is not known if the webcast will be available on demand after the meeting.
