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

Yeah, it was unbelievable, and sure enough, none of it's true.

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".
