  • 11:40 AM: bgertzfield According to the weirdo walking the WWDC line, I am male number 776. The nice lady behind me is female number 43!
  • 11:40 AM: John Biggs Hey guys – we’re outside the keynote room right now w/ folks from Phonescoop, Laptop, Engadget; everyone’s here. Sorry the live feed went down, not a whole lot we can do about that.

  • 11:42 AM: Monik (etiole.com) why has the video gone off air?
