Apple kicked off its 2009 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address led by marketing chief Phil Schiller. It is a satisfying presentation that answers the curiosity of many Apple fans: iPhone 3GS and Snow Leopard are announced with details and launch dates, new iPhone OS 3.0 apps highlights, and MacBook Pro line refreshes with new 13-inch models.
There are many details and it take sometimes to go through. The best coverage is [Gizmodo’s Apple WWDC 2009 Live Coverage](http://i.gizmodo.com/5280422/apple-wwdc-2009-live-coverage). Apple also posted the [WWDC 2009 Keynote Address Video](http://www.apple.com/quicktime/qtv/keynote/) online, suitable for the rest of the millions of us who could not make it there.
We are happy with all the announcements, but below are 8 things Apple could do better with its 2009 WWDC Keynote:
1. Where is Steve Jobs? We miss you Mr Jobs. But Phil is cool too.
2. Where is the multi-touch MacBook? We speculate Apple is working on a multi-touch MacBook, which will have its own launch event after Snow Leopard’s release in September. And the new touch screen MacBooks will fill the void of Apple MacBook line, which now consists of just one model.
3. We struggled internally to understand why Apple removes the ExpressCard slot in MacBook Pro 13/15 inch models and replaces them with SD card slot. If it is for space saving, Apple might as well do away with SD slot altogether.
4. Apple showed off using MobileMe service to locate missing iPhone and killed off its content remotely. This looks like a killer app for MobileMe. But we were hoping Apple could reduce MobileMe subscription further, or bundle it free with Mac OS X.
5. Apple has given us a search engine unfriendly product name with “iPhone 3G S”, the official name in Apple’s literature. We will use “iPhone 3GS” instead from now on to refer to the third generation iPhone.
6. iPhone 3GS with VGA video. Great, but not so great. Looks like we need to carry our Flip HD together with our phone for one more year, hopefully HD video comes to fourth generation iPhone in 2010.
7. Apparently WWDC is not an event for iPod or iPod touch as there is no new model announcement. Will we see a new iPod touch model to go along with iPhone OS 3.0 on June 17 or June 19?
8. Voice Control finally comes to iPhone, but we wonder why it is not made available for existing iPhone models? Is voice control function technically too demanding for older iPhone hardware?
**Updated June 27**: Apple is now calling the new phone “iPhone 3GS” without the space in all its literature. We sure hope they changed the name after reading this post.
