AAPL dipped below $152 right after the Stevenote, but has crept back up a little. Nothing earthshattering announced today (some small surprises), but definitely a few new things to juice profits.

We know some of what's to come in the WWDC Stevenote. What are your predictions?
Mac Fusion? - - looks like the 7.7" footprint of AppleTV and Time Capsule, rather than the 6.5" footprint of the Mac mini (and AirPort Extreme). - Tinfoil 2.0
iPhone - more model differentiation than just memory size? - Tinfoil 2.0
What of the OS split between OS X iPhone and OS X Leopard? Necessary? Dangerous? - Tinfoil 2.0
Will AppleTV ever get opened to developers? Will Apple ever get serious about the living room / set-top box market? - Tinfoil 2.0
iTablet ???? - Roberto Bonini
Apple's so well covered now that the small updates to iPhone and all existing products are now ho-hum. Expectations are so high now that Steve can't expect to take 20 minutes and show us iPhoto any more. :-) So... I hope he stays focused and continues to introduce the things that will advance the platforms, both OS X and iPhone. But don't expect anything wild. - Louis Gray
3G iPhone, Handheld MID device with OS X, iPhone App Store - Akshay Dodeja
this event will be all about iPhone 3g, I don't expect any other big news. Steve wants to sell iPhone first. Than again this is Steve's show you can never be sure about what he is gonna do. - ahmet bulent

Twitter's three-tiered plan to stay alive during the Stevenote [via] - Tinfoil 2.0
Twitter and Summize seem to be up to something to help Twitter users track the Stevenote [via Dave Winer]... - Tinfoil 2.0
Twitter is linking to a Summize search for 'wwdc OR apple OR iphone OR "steve jobs"', which can be fed to RSS or back to Twitter. Re-blasting every Stevenote-related tweet back out to thousands of users doesn't seem to me to be a good recipe for stability on a peak traffic day. But having Summize as a go-to place for relevant tweets is otherwise a reasonable strategy to offload Twitter. - Tinfoil 2.0
