Excellent WWDC. Bling city. Will start saving for my MB Pro, pay for my iPod Touch upgrade (I don't see why "we" have to pay, our money was green too). Oh "and" Snow Leopard!

But where the hell was Steve?

So with the move to sealed batteries, I presume the latch/cover system Apple was so proud of on the unibody design is only going to last one iteration, and HD swaps will require just a bit more work?

$29 for the 10.6 upgrade is a pleasant surprise. I wouldn't have had much problem with $39 or even $49.

If they give the next iPod Touch GPS in the fall, I'll be pulling the trigger.

Since he has been absent for the last couple months (and presumably not working on any of this stuff) it wouldn't be right for him to be the one to introduce it IMO.

By him, you mean Stevie? Then I agree.

While I would have liked to see him present, Phil has certainly earned it, and does a very credible job.

Can't wait to get the webcast.

Regardless of whether he presented or not, having him present - doing a "cameo" as it were, would have been a real boost.

Given how much negative press there was about his recent appearances, I wonder if he does not look appreciably healthier.

I was kind of hoping that after they finished the iPhone 3.0 SW stuff that they switched to a pleasantly plump Steve Jobs to say "Oh, One more thing" and then intro the iPhone.
