The WWDC keynote (the 1st one only) IS the 'publicly' announced news that the world gets from WWDC. That's it. Yes... SOMETIMES it:
- Announces new laptops
- Announces new desktops
- Announces new iPhones
- Announces new iPods (?)
- Announces random non-developer related Apple news.
In seasons past we all but expected news about OS X and we were very surprised when non-developer oriented news was revealed (laptops etc). Over the past few years WWDC has quite clearly morphed into an iPhone and now iOS centric event where 'new iPhones' have usually been revealed. Where in prior WWDCs (pre-iPhone) hardware was almost never 'expected'.
If you were honestly expecting the entire laundry list of 'rumors' to ALL be revealed you clearly never saw a WWDC before... My advice search WWDC 2008, WWDC 2007, WWDC 2006 and see what they are really about. For an even better idea search WWDC 1997, 1998, 1999 or WWDC 2000. Those will show you some idea of what they are like and how every year people just like you post 'major disappointment' posts listing all of the nonsense they were expecting.
Not your fault... you just gotta lean how Apple works.
