"I can run this on a Mac or PC — you might guess which my favorite is. I’m going to launch my favorite browser — which happens to be Safari. Just log right in."
Mobile Me allows you to integrate your computer, mobile device, photographs, and everything all together in one service (this is the re amped version of .Mac).
What a service…hmm..what’s the price gonna be?
Mobile Me offers push email and push contacts. "Exchange for the rest of us"
He called Microsoft’s Active Sync "Active Stink" (lol).
Jobs just announced a new service "completely new" called Mobile Me.
This was showed a few minutes ago..Scientific Calculator

He just showed off Windows Mobile’s Task Manager – everyone laughed intensely (iPhone lovers bashing Windows as always – rightfully so?:))
That’s it for the developers.

This app is for medical images (CT scans, PET scans, Xrays, etc…)…pretty amazing!
Modality helps you to learn and understand medicine

A bunch of developers are on stage and they are going to sample various applications (Sega’s game demo was a success)
SEGA is coming on stage to to sample "Super Monkey Ball" – a game with 119 stages!
The app he just sampled allows you to filter your contacts by distance (i.e. contacts within a 2 mile range) – NEW FEATURE!
Long story short – he created a fully functional location based application and loaded it onto his iPhone all in under 10 minutes.
Note: You need a Mac to run any of these development tools. www.developer.apple.com/
If you are not technical it is very boring right now. But it’s all about technology right now, so regular users can enjoy a better platform.
They are discussing APIs – Cocoa Touch, xCode, Interface Builder, and iPhone Simulator.
So far the presentation is almost the same as the SDK road map presentation from March 6th 2008.
It seems that "iPhone 2.0" will be the official name.
Scott Forestall starting to talk about the SDK. About to show off new apps.
Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync is now official.
We hear a lot that Apple doesn’t care about enterprise – but hey, that’s how the superceleb chose to open up his Keynote – so in my opinion, Apple cares about enterprise quite a bit.
Steve Jobs is focusing on Enterprise first.
Steve Jobs announced that Snow Leopard (10.6) will be discussed after lunch.
Steve Jobs on stage!
Note: First time ever there are overflow rooms present at the WWDC. It’s sold out! It’s a developer’s conference not a rock concert!!

Surprise, surprise. Apple’s tentacles reach so far that it even managed to crash a completely unconnected liveblogging service CoverItLive.
No worries – we’ll be live blogging the old fashion way.
