WWDC 09 Today! New Hardware (we hope)! Oh, and Software Demos. We Can’t Get Enough of Those!

Another WWDC is upon us, and amidst all the speculation of possible new iPhones — and even wilder speculation about Mac tablets — there’s something we should not forget: Software demos.

Yes, it’s a developer conference and that’s the place for them, so prepare for some “down” time during the keynote as the latest iPhone apps are demoed on stage for your enjoyment. All you can do is pray the presenters have an actual personality, and applaud politely as you mutter all the while something like “Yeah, that’s great, where’s the #$%^! hardware!”
