Send Article to a Friend

WWDC -- As long as I'm being demanding... If you attended the Worldwide Developers Conference last week, I'd appreciate it if you could send me a short note detailing what you felt were the snazziest technologies showcased there. I'm hoping to do an article talking about the sort of things that caused spontaneous combustion, er, applause, from the audience. Again, many thanks! -Adam
