Only a few minutes to go before Tim Cook enters the stage and kicks off the Wordwide Developers Conference with the traditional Apple keynote. This two-hour presentation will preview new versions of both the Mac and iDevice operating systems. There have also been rumors about a possible music streaming service from Apple, nicknamed iRadio.
Traditionally the online Apple Store went offline a few hours ago. This usually indicates the arrival of new products, possibly new MacBooks. We hope Apple also manages to surprise us a bit by announcing new products or services nobody heard about. One way or another, this first Apple keynote of the year also seems to be the most anticipated one already.
Stay tuned for more information about product announcements and such, as iPhoneFreakz will be posting news about the keynote.

It looks like Apple is testing notification messages on the iCloud.com website, which looks similar to the notification system in iOS 5. “The notification currently only displays the text “Default Title for English- This is test message description”, so its obvious Apple let this one slip accidentally. The icon sitting on the notification banner is the icon Apple uses to signify troubleshooting, help, and system status. It’s very possible that this notification is a test for possible iCloud service status notifications in the future.”
