Apple WWDC 2008 Keynote

Apple Worldwide Developers Conference is taking place in San Francisco right now and started with the Steve Jobs Keynote. The event was live blogged by Mac Rumors, Macworld, Engadget and many other sites.

Main topics of the keynote have been the App Store and some of it’s apps, the iPhone 2.0 Software, the MobileMe service that replaces .Mac and the new iPhone 3G (thinner, GPS, 3G and cheaper).

Steve Jobs also announced that later on there will be given a peak of the new OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

For sure today’s keynote will soon be avaible on the new Apple Keynotes podcast in the iTunes Store.
