There is a new iPhone, coming June 19, about a month earlier than expected. There is a $99 iPhone, available now, which is not good news for Palm (PALM). There are new MacBook Pros and MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 8, 2009 11:50 AM ET
The Apple (AAPL) keynote Bingo game -- brilliantly parodied in the famous 2008 IBM buzzword ad (pasted below the fold) -- has become a fanboy tradition, although as far as we know nobody has ever interrupted a Steve Jobs presentation to shout "Bingo!"
Marketing senior vice president Phil Schiller, not Jobs, is scheduled to give the keynote at this year's World Wide Developers Conference Monday, but that hasn't stopped the Bingo MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 7, 2009 6:34 AM ET
David Pogue, New York Times tech columnist, creator of the Missing Manual series, and frustrated Broadway producer, led his Macworld Live! feature presentation in San Francisco Wednesday with a musical riff on Steve Jobs' non-attendance.
Playing the electric piano and accompanied by former Cirque de Soleil bassist J.F. Brisette, he sang, to the tune of Oliver's "Where is Love?"

When Apple announced Tuesday that it was finally lifting the so-called digital rights management (DRM) restrictions that iTunes music customers found so onerous, it left one thing out: the cost of doing so -- in money and, as we learned overnight, time.
"We are thrilled to be able to offer our iTunes customers DRM-free iTunes Plus songs in high quality audio," said Steve Jobs in a press release.
"It's really easy," said MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 7, 2009 11:21 AM ET
Boring is good, says Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster in a report from Macworld 2009.
"Today's Macworld keynote was underwhelming as expected," Munster wrote in a note to clients, a development he interprets as "a sign that Steve Jobs remains primary spokesman and active leader."
The biggest news at the show, he says, was the updated 17" MacBook Pro and two software updates: iLife and iWork. (See Live from Apple's last Macworld)

This is a live blog of the valedictory keynote Steve Jobs decided not to give -- sending Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller to Macworld 2009 in his place.
Schiller's remarks began shortly after 9 a.m PST (12 noon EST),

What's up with the MacBook Air?
The road warrior's favorite Apple (AAPL) notebook, pulled with great fanfare from an interoffice envelope by Steve Jobs at Macworld 2008, is being steeply discounted this weekend, on the eve of Macworld 2009.
The entry level machine (1.6 GHz, 2GB) is still listed on the Apple Store at its original price -- albeit with a 50% larger hard drive and a new graphics chipset. But if MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 4, 2009 11:14 AM ET
If it was Steve Jobs' intention to take the wind out of Macworld's sails, he's done a pretty good job.
"Expectations are low," wrote Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster in a note to clients early Tuesday, one week before the first Macworld Expo keynote since 1997 that won't be delivered by Apple's charismatic CEO. "No significant new products are expected."
"Fairly modest" is how Kaufmann Bros.' Shaw Wu described investor expectations for the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 30, 2008 12:08 PM ET
"We are in the early stages of changing roles in Apple's management structure," Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster wrote last week in the wake of Steve Jobs' decision to hand the Macworld keynote over to senior vice president Phil Schiller -- a move Munster characterized as "a clear message that a leadership shift is underway."
In this analyst's scenario, Jobs stays on as CEO -- "the irreplaceable face of Apple" -- but MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 20, 2008 10:30 AM ET
Steve Jobs is not a manager who suffers fools, gladly or otherwise. In the early days of Apple, he was famous for categorizing employees by their "bozo bit," set at either 0 or 1, and for flipping his assessment from one to the other in the space of an elevator ride.
So what's he going to do about whoever is in charge of MobileMe?
