    I imagine Arn will do a recap before WWDC, but I felt the need to jump the gun because there are ALREADY so many rumors.

    Wow - I didnt realize there were so many rumors out there for WWDC.

    Looking at it now I think we will see the iPhone with the hardware rumors and 3.0 firmware.

    Possibly see an update to the Macbook+MBP line, the speed bump being the most likely and blu-ray + OLED being long shots.

    EA I think is a long shot.

    No netbook, but a large touch screen/tablet type device which I would not consider a netbook and apparently neither does Apple.

    I love that you've collected them all in one place, its a shame half of them are wrong, such as the EA Aquisition and Blu-Ray, but thanks for the effort :)

    Great post - hope you can update as things go on. Wonder if we'll see a subforum on WWDC 2009? Not sure if they will.

    One thread I haven't seen yet - Who's going to be doin g the keynote in the main part? Schiller, with respectives demoing their sections? Jobs is officially not back till end of June, and we haven't really heard anything about how he is. WOuld be an epic end to bow out on v3 iPhone and Snow Leopard - but hope he has more in him.
