    Really happy that Steve will be back. Can't wait for iCloud especially if I don't have to upload my iTunes purchases.

    It's a great time to be an Apple user, two new operating systems! Wohoo.

    Steve Jobs to Introduce iCloud, iOS 5, and Mac OS X Lion at WWDC Keynote

    Apple today announced that Steve Jobs will indeed host the keynote for the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next Monday in San Francisco. Aside from the expected focus on iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion, Apple's announcement also confirms that Jobs will introduce the company's "iCloud" service.
    Apple last month was reported to have purchased the iCloud.com domain name, with additional reports claiming that Apple has indeed been referring to its streaming service by that name. Apple has been said to be close to wrapping up negotiations with major music labels and publishers to allow users to stream their owned music from Apple's cloud-based servers to any of a number of Internet-connected devices.

    Seems unusual that they'd give a list of things they plan to announce beforehand. They must be really worried about people not showing up over the rumors about no new iPhone.

    Let's hope iCloud is not only in the US!

    Can't wait for iOS5! A better Notification system is all I want!

    This keynote is going to be huge. Even if no Hardware is released (although I'm sure there will be something), the software and services are going to be amazing!

    Woah! So no surprises this year! We already know what they will be doing! Well here is hoping that iOS 5 will come out soon and be awesome! And I hope iCloud will be good too, with no high monthly cost.

    It sold out. I think they're more concerned about drumming up media coverage—it's easy for the media to talk about a new device (a single point of focus)—but new software (as good as it is) is decidedly less appealing to viewers/visitors.

    :eek:

    Where is the Apple I have come to know and love? The one that keeps me guessing and feeding off rumors and supposed leaks until 10AM Pacific Time on announcement day?

    I can't remember Apple ever telling you what was being introduced at an event in a press release.

    Always to have a nice laugh in the morning. No one goes for hardware related news, hence what WWDC actually stands for... developers = software. It sold out ridiculously fast, like always.

    The reason they announced all 3 is because 2 or 3 were public knowledge, and well, the 3rd, iCloud, was pretty much also public knowledge (data center). All 3 are integrated, and I'm 99.999% sure (just like Amazons EC2 & S3 uptime ;)). So it only makes sense to talk about all of them because they are deeply integrated with one another. If they are not, I'll shave my head and gee-golly wiz, you can call me a monkey's uncle.

    So iCloud.com essentially confirmed as Apple's.

    What will the 'one more thing' be if all this is pre-announced?
