    Utter bobbins!

    The WWDC keynote has NEVER been used to introduce new consumer-level hardware. It will instead concentrate on Snow Leopard and iPhone OS 3.

    He'll be "live" at the WWDC...

    I can picture it already...

    Schiller - "And I'd like to announce the new iPhone 3G Video!"

    Crowd cheer.

    Schiller - "Its simple to use, just go to your contact list, select who you want to call, and click Video, I wonder who we have in this contact list?"

    Crowd start to murmur.

    Schiller - "Lets try this number."

    Big screen behind Schiller comes up with the screen of the iPhone and the "Calling" screen...

    Call is answered and there is that moment where nothing seems to happen...

    Schiller - "Hello? This is Phillip, whom am I speaking to?"

    Picture appears and...

    Steve Jobs - "Hi Phillip, Steve Jobs here..."

    And the crowd go wild, whoop, whoop, whoop....

    If Jobs was ever in a jokey mood, he'd hire someone to drive his car up to Redmond just for a laugh.....

    it's been previously reported that Schmidt leaves the boardroom when iPhone topics come up. Apple and Google both seem OK with that setup.
