Back when His Steveness announced the feature ladened iPhone OS 3.0 the salivary glands of the iPhone Faithful kicked into overdrive and vendors of other smart and not-so-smartphones started wringing hands again.
Today, I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve up to his eyeballs in a flood of anticipation for what Santa will bring, except in this case it's early Summer, I'm a hell of a lot older, and "Santa" hails from Cupertino, not the North Pole. I'm waiting, of course, for iPhone OS 3.0.
Apple's much hyped World Wide Developer Conference kicks off on June 8, and the list of wishes and dreams for new product announcements seems to grow every day. Vern, however, has a very short wish list for Apple at WWDC: better Bluetooth.

I've discovered that there are two sides to Macworld conferences, one were hordes of people crowd around vendor booths, the other side of Macworld comes to life when the showroom darkens and the stage mikes have gone silent.
