Two events will capture the world this week: The start of the World Cup and Apple’s (Nasdaq: AAPL) Worldwide Developers Conference. WWDC 2010 has already filled up the blogosphere with zillions of posts speculating on Apple’s announcements and Steve Jobs’s body weight. But all that trash will be internet landfill this morning at 10AM PST when the conference begins.
Here are a few things investors should keep in mind:
- Gizmodo already spoiled what was expected to be the biggest announcement: the new iPhone.
- The iPhone OS 4 will show off what Apple is doing to stay ahead of Google’s (Nasdaq: GOOG) Android.
- Jobs is expected to talk more about iAds.
- Apple is expected to release the next generation of their Safari browser: Safari 5.
- Jobs may address AT&T’s (NYSE: T) recent move to discontinue the all-you-can-eat buffet for data.
- Endgadget is leaking photos of a new touch trackpad for desktops.
