What will Apple release at WWDC 2012? [Poll]

The banners are already up for iOS 6, but will we get a first beta on keynote day, or will Apple make us wait a while? What about OS X Mountain Lion, will it go Gold Master? We've heard about new iCloud features, will it be just a few little additions or a full 2.0 update? The Apple TV runs iOS, but is it ready to get an App Store all its own?

iOS 6: Setting Apple Maps expectations

Maps are core technology on a smartphone these days. We depend on our phones to make calls and otherwise keep us in contact, and we depend on them to tell us where we are and help us find where were are going. We depend on them. Messing with a successful mapping solution on mobile, in any way, is non-trivial.

As Android Central's Phil Nickinson has often remarked -- maps could well be Google's flagship product. (AdSense/AdWords may be their most important, but nothing else comes close to the sheer user-facing coolness of Maps.)

That's because iOS is only one part of Apple's incredibly successful mobile equation. The App Store -- the development kit, commerce engine, and digital goods that enable apps to be made, sold, and bought -- is another.

And arguably, despite it's unprecedented success, it's in ever greater need of Apple's attention.
