iPhone OS 3.0

Well that's the new OS downloaded and installed on my iPod Touch and I can't help wondering what all the fuss has been about. This update feels even more anticlimactic once it's actually living on your iPod. There's just nothing to it. Nothing really changes. There's no little red circles on Twitter apps suddenly appearing to tell you that someone more has left 140 characters of wisdom, there's no oomph when the device boots in again for the first time after update...there's nothing.

There is a lot of hope that Dear Leader, otherwise known to you and me as Steve Jobs, will make a surprise appearance and bring with him some amazing piece of technology that will mark his return to Apple. I don't think it's going to happen, it might but I really doubt it. I'm going to make a couple of predictions in this post covering WWDC tomorrow and what I think will happen in the rest of June. I honestly feel that tomorrow is going to mirror the Macworld keynote. During that event Phil did an excellent job of introducing products that were, lets face it, boring. If Steve had been in full health I don't think he would've been able to make those announcements anymore exciting than Phil made them. Tomorrow's likely to be the same. Phil can introduce us to Snow Leopard and iPh…
