Apple iPhone 4 press conference predictions

Apple's unprecedented iPhone 4 press conference is only a few hours away and so many questions remain unanswered. Will Steve Jobs even be there? Does he need to personally get in front of this or does he need to stay far away and let Phil Schiller and the engineers handle it?

Will Apple be forced to offer a hardware fix for the antenna problems, either a recall to the genius bar for new insulation inside or outside, or a swap out for an iPhone 4.1 with fix already in place? Can they get away with another software fix promise for the future? WIll they give away free bumpers to soothe the masses, or free swatches of iDuct-tape to further enrage them. Will they deny, deny, deny and cast stabby glances back into the dark heart of the internet and mainstream media? Will they try to shift attention by announcing a Verizon iPhone?

Or was this just an elaborate plot to get all Apple-centric journos at the same location, at the same time, so Apple could hit them with a stern talking to, then immolate them with Omega Beams?
