    Steve Jobs took the stage to a standing ovation at Wednesday's Apple event in San Francisco. The thing looking jobs opened by talking about his liver transplant.

    Waiting for the official introduction to the new iPhone? You may get a chance to see it in just a few weeks. That is, if you haven't already seen the unauthorized sneak peek, courtesy Gizmodo.

    Apple announced Wednesday that its annual Worldwide Developers Conference will run June 7-11 in at San Francisco's Moscone Center. They're calling it "The Center of the App Universe." Hint, hint -- there could be some iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch software news at this event.

    The fourth-generation iPhone is expected to look a lot like the prototype Gizmodo published, likely including a front-facing camera for iChat, a faster processor and longer battery life. But there could be a few differences between that prototype and the real thing Apple CEO Steve Jobs might be showing off next month. 

    PC World tells us gives us a few more tips on what to expect at this year's WWDC:

    • Details and improvements on the new iPhone 4.0 OS
    • More information on the Game Center, iPhone's new social gaming network
    • Interactive advertising on iPhone and iPad with the iAds network.

    While new gadget excitement might have been overshadowed by the recent prototype hype, there's always hope for those special words from Jobs: "Just one more thing ..." We'll be eagerly awaiting that phrase again at WWDC10.
