Steve Ballmer Won’t be Making it to WWDC, or Dancing With the Stars

Well, that was quick. We had brought you a story earlier today, about a particular analyst out there who believed, pretty strongly, that Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, would actually be making an appearance at this year's WWDC. You know, the one that's built around Apple's developer community, and where they're likely to announce the next iPhone. Apparently Ballmer was going to show up to announce something like Silverlight on the iPhone, or to announce iPhone OS and Mac development tools in Visual Studio 2010. Yeah, it was unbelievable, and sure enough, none of it's true.

Jobs: “You won’t be disappointed” by WWDC 2010

Jobs: “You won’t be disappointed” by WWDC 2010

Steve Jobs has been flexing his typing fingers again, this time dealing with the PR fall-out after Google IO last week.  Two iPhone-lovers got in touch with the Apple CEO to ask whether he agrees that Google stands a chance of surpassing the Cupertino company, as well as if he has something particularly juicy up his sleeve at WWDC 2010.

The answers, unsurprisingly, are upbeat.  Steve reckons there's "not a chance" that Google is leapfrogging Apple with the direction in which they're taking Android, and as for WWDC 2010 despite the existing iPhone HD leaks we've seen he still thinks we "won't be disappointed".
