    I don't think this signifies new hardware but I'm wondering if Apple is going to announce new software that pertains to developer. I'm not sure he's going to be exciting in a keynote talking about features already announced.

    Steve said this is the "year of HD", Tiger is out, and the iBooks are due for a refresh so I am hoping the iBook gets a redesign (i.e. widescreen, but still white to go with the iMac) and is unveiled at WWDC2005. At the very least it should get a graphics card that supports Core Image even if it remains at 32MB, but maybe a 64MB BTO option on the high-end model.

    it always makes headlines when steve is announced as a keynote speaker, but really it's never news. i mean other than the one time he had surgery for cancer, he's always been the speaker.
