Tuesday Keynote – Paul Maritz – Will it be moist and chewy?

[Updated many times, the latest Tuesday night.]

Keynote webcast

I’ll update this entry with coverage of Paul’s Tuesday keynote as it becomes available.

Extra special Virtually Anything is Possible, even having Apple Update pop up during the keynote.

And the journos weigh in. Am I unfair in stereotyping them as playing up the competition aspect of this morning’s keynote rather than the technological vision (ie, the cool part)?

We were all set for the Twitter questions, and then Paul ran out of
time. (You might have seen the Twitter screen at the end.) We hope that
Steve can address them tomorrow.
