    So now that Steve is on medical leave till the end of June, what about the epic WWDC keynote that always happens in June? Let's hope that Steve has left Apple with all the projects needed to bring them through half of a year. Maybe he will still be working a little bit, overseeing projects from home. Who knows?

    what was the last one?
    anyway, No Steve- No WWDC 09?:eek: hope not. But I kind of doubt there will be awesome updates this spring or for WWDC either. The front page news suck in every possible way.

    WWDC - Worldwide Developers Conference. Always happens around June time, and Steve gives his keynotes and new products.

    This belongs in the Apple, Industry and Internet Discussion fourm. And he said in his letter that he will be back at Apple in June. If he's not, then we have something to worry about. Currently, I think he just wants some downtime so he can solve this protein deficiency thing.

    I don't understand why people are getting their pants knotted over all of this. So Steve's buggered off for ~6 months, you think that Apple conceptualize their new products the night before they announce them? I'd wager every product that will be unveiled at WWDC '09 has already been run past Steve and is probably in either the latter stages of development or in production in some form.

    Apple run on product lifecycles and seeing as Intel's roadmap is as far as three years forward-looking, Apple's initial ideas of which products will have which components are already roughly drafted for the next three years.

    He'll make a dramatic comeback at WWDC 2009. It's a gut feeling. And he'll unveil a groundbreaking product that will be bigger than the iphone + macbook air publicity. :p

    You're jumping the gun aren't you? As far as I know, Apple has not released the dates for WWDC this year.

    WWDC has happened as early as May and as late as mid-August. If Jobs feels like giving the WWDC keynote, he'll be able to do it provided he returns in late June.
