9 June 2008 By Ankit Duseja

Its just few minutes left for the WWDC 2008 to start & Apple to release something special today. A lot of things are happening all over the web including fake iPhone2 images, downtime of Apple Store, rumors etc. Apple WorldWide Developer Conference is starting at 10 AM PDT.


Visit the store now and you will notice the above picture yelling "We’ll be back soon. We are busy updating the store for you and will be back shortly." Crunchgear is busy gathering comments from users about what apple will be getting today in Store while Michael, Matt & Mark from Techcrunch are preparing themselves for live blogging of the WWDC 2008 event. Also you can catch the live updates here from Cnet.
