Losing My SteveNote Virginity
Tomorrow I get to take a break from covering Taiwanese mini-notebooks to experience something unlike anything I have ever experienced before. I have heard tales from young and old, and far and wide about the surreal experience that is only 11 hours away. It is not an eclipse. It is not one of the seven wonders of the world. It is, no other than, a Steve Jobs keynote or a SteveNote. I am calling it losing my SteveNote virginity because that is how monumental of an event I think it is to a technology journalist like myself. So am I ready for my first Apple World Wide Developers Conference and for seeing the renowned Apple father himself in the flesh and blood? I mean, is anyone ever ready for their first time? I don’t think so. Sure, I am ready for Mr. Jobs, clad in a black turtleneck, to command the stage and to stand before the crowd with revealing PowerPoint KeyNote slides. I am also ready for the expected 3G iPhone (aka second generation iPhone). But Steve has always got some special moves up his sleeve and for that I am not prepared. Especially since I am not in the business of Apple rumors, but there are sure a lot of them out there. Make sure to keep you browser tuned to blog.laptopmag.com for the latest news from WWDC tomorrow and to see how I feel after losing my SteveNote.
