I skimmed though it, and it seemed like the adience was dead. Not once did they applaud except for when Steve brought Alicia Keys on stage. Alicia even made fun out the fact by saying to Steve "See, the audience isn't dead afterall".
Again, I only skimmed though it, so there might have been appluase in other places, but I did not see any. But hey, maybe Steve didn't deserve applause, oh well . . .

the audience already knew most of what steve said so there was not much to clap about.

Well, it was a bit disappointing. After more than a year of negotiating, Apple only introduced it in 3 countries, with few local indies. Some local artists were quoted saying "accepting apple terms would be commercial suicide" the day before. No word on the ipod mini either. The audience consisted primarily out of journalists, not mac-fans. So saying stuff "we have 70% market share, 85M downloads,.." is an interesting factoid for an article, but not really a clapping kind of thing.
WWDC will be better! Well, I hope so :)
