If you believe the rumor mill, Apple executives will address developers on Monday morning and update almost their entire product line in the space of less than two hours. To avoid disappointment, just keep repeating: “It’s only a keynote… it’s only a keynote… it’s only a keynote…”
Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference kicks off on Monday, June 11 with a keynote from CEO Tim Cook and friends, and in keeping with tradition, the banners are already going up outside of the Moscone Center in San Francisco ahead of the event.
“Monday, Monday, so good to me…” If The Mamas and the Papas don’t get you fired up on this fine Monday, then perhaps we’ll get your heart racing with the latest tech news coming over the data pipes.

Apple is famous for the phrase "Think Different", but when it comes to its own products I reckon "Think Simple" would be a better description. In an industry where all too often the value of a product is judged by the number of acronyms on its spec sheet, Apple takes a very different approach.
