    Ok seriously, they have no new products at all. The new macbooks are the same as thd old ones. Snow leopard has no real new features. Basically wrapping old stuff in new skin and selling them. I have never been so disappointed with WWDC except for this year :( What do you guys think?

    I'm pretty pleased so far.. the bit about AT&T not supporting MMS yet is pretty weak, though. I'm sure it's just them trying to figure out how to rip us off for it

    You're judging the quality of a conference by its opening presentation?

    OP, seriously? How quickly Apple owed you something at WWDC. I think its fine as a developer and as a iPhone user.

    I think it's pretty great too. And I'm loving how cheap Snow Leopard is going to be!! Also, the fact ATT wont get MMS till later in the Summer :p that's gonna wind a lot of people up

    ATT does not support tethering! Dev team better get cracking, something tells me there's going to be a lot of unlocked iPhones.

    Ok, seriously? MacBooks get faster processors, new screens, a better battery, a SD slot, firewire 800, backlight keyboards on all models, and the base model drops $100 and you're saying "they're thes ame as the old ones?" What color is the sky on your planet?

    They actually talked about Snow Leopard and gave us dates.

    A lot of users got shafted on the hardware side but that's nothing new.

    I think its the best WWDC ever.

    The only thing to complain about is the lack of express-card slot on the 15" MBP.

    Snow Leopard was always going to be a feature lite OS (they said so last year) yet it still seems to bring some good improvements to the table.

    The new iPhone is obviously going to come last - or later this month.

    They've gone to two hours before now.

    As mentioned, it's a developer's conference, and as such, I'm quite pleased with it: cheaper/faster laptops for development, specifics about OSs and update timeframes, etc.

    I'm enjoying this keynote as much as any in a long time.

    No quad core notebooks or iMac?

    My guess is we'll get those just after Snow Leopard.

    They wouldn't have enough time to go over the new hardware if there was one.
