Steve Jobs will be up on stage for this year’s WorldWide Developers Conference (WWDC) to announce a few new releases which I have a feeling, will change how people uses computer in the next few years. Some of these are Lion, iOS5 and iCloud.
The keynote address will be held at the Moscone Centre Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m – which is 1am June 7 and will last till 3am. Like previous events, we hope to see a live video stream from Apple.

There are many signs that point towards a historic keynote address tomorrow. For example, Apple had never announce a new product “via Press Release”:http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2011/05/31wwdc.html that will be unveil at a keynote address, but they announced iCloud and word on the street is iCloud will be different. Lion has been in developers’ hands for a while but how much convergence from iOS with Mac OS X is yet to be seen – and what it means for the post-PC era. iOS 5 – which many had not seen, not even developers, will be unveiled. With strong competition coming from Android, Windows 7 and HP’s WebOS, the folks at Cuppertino will want something that will put Apple at the forefront for the next few years.
All I can say is, tonight’s keynote address is one NOT to be missed. See ya tonight!
