Thanks for starting the thread Ron. I know the focus is not supposed to be hardware related, but I'm hoping for a refreshed Mac Pro or iMac. Unfortunately, the Apple Store is still up, so I'm not too hopeful...

I'm live from pan era, strapped in and ready!

In roughly descending order, the sites you want to constantly refresh (or let automatically refresh if available):
http://www.engadget....from-wwdc-2010/
http://arstechnica.c...bs-liveblog.ars
http://ihnatko.com/2...ynote-liveblog/
http://www.mobilecru...keynote-iphone/
http://live.gdgt.com...ynote-coverage/
http://www.macrumorslive.com/
http://www.wired.com...log-apple-wwdc/
http://liveblog.macobserver.com/m
http://technologizer.com/wwdc2010/-
 
The one site you can safely skip today:
http://gizmodo.com/
But if you insist:
http://live.gizmodo.com/
 
No sites will carry the official live video, tho in the past a few folks have snuck out justin.tv and ustream streams.  Apple will post the official stream tonight and the downloadable version tomorrow if they follow recent history.  Your best best is the live blogs listed above.

Sam:  having 2 mikes means you can get noise cancelling, and it matters a lot for those who do speakerphone, something the iPhone has sucked at.  This is kind of an attempt to stab at that more business market.

Neh, he was connecting over WiFi not ATT.  It couldn't hold a wifi signal, because too many people there were using it they are saying.

OK, maybe.  The problem I have with the speakerphone use on my 3GS is that it's just not loud enough.  They better fix that too.
