WWDC: What Will Di Capi (di Tutti Apple) Do?


Hey, BoomTown just heard that Apple (AAPL) is having some kind of conference for its developers today and there will be–what is the name they are calling it?–a “keynote” by some guy named Steve.

Blah, blah, blah on some new iPhone with three Gs. With GPS, video recording, more space, a better camera and an ability to beam you up to the Starship Enterprise.

OK, OK, for those not under a rock over the last several weeks, Apple leader Steve Jobs takes the stage for his much-expected keynote at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference at San Francisco’s Moscone West, starting at 10 a.m. PDT.

In other words, Twitter should be completely collapsing at 10:01 a.m., under the weight of 1,265,452,983 tweeting fanboys (and girls too) going into digital ecstasy at Jobs’s every utterance, all hanging on for the detailed details and, you guessed it, one more thing!

AllThingsD will also be there live too, in the form of Digital Daily’s John Paczkowski, who will be blogging right from the WWDC keynote.

And Walt Mossberg is also in town, so BoomTown will try to corner him and Paczkowski after the Jobs speech with our new Mino video camera from Pure Digital to find out about iPhone’s beam-me-up-Scotty feature.

Until then, please enjoy this less-than-impressed-with-the-iPhone piece by Dan Gillmor in Voices today. Apple fans fire away, as Dan likes a good debate!

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
