Apple WWDC 2009 keynote to be Schiller, not Jobs

Tickets are all sold out, but if you were headed to Apple's WWDC next month in the hope of seeing Steve Jobs take to the stage, prepare for disappointment.  Apple have confirmed that Philip Schiller, senior VP of worldwide product marketing, will be delivering the WWDC09 keynote, while the rest of the week will offer more details and demonstrations of OS X Snow Leopard and iPhone OS 3.0.
