Steve Jobs on WWDC Announcements: 'You Won't Be Disappointed'  —  After the big news from Google last week, MacRumors reader Bryan Webster emailed Steve Jobs: “I hope you have some good WWDC announcements to blow [Google] out of the water”.  —  To this, Steve Jobs reportedly replied “You won't be disappointed”.

Jay Yarow / Silicon Alley Insider:
Steve Jobs Email: “Not A Chance” Google Is Leapfrogging Us (AAPL, GOOG)  —  Steve Jobs is firing off one-line emails this weekend addressing Google's big announcements from this week.  —  One email to Steve asked him what he thought of Gizmodo saying Google had leapfrogged Apple with the release of the new Android operating system.

Jason C. / Zappos.com:
6pm.com Pricing Mistake  —  Hey everyone - As many of you may know (and I'm sure a lot of you do not), 6pm.com is our sister site. 6pm.com is where brandaholics go for their guilt free daily fix of the brands they crave.  Every day, the site highlights discounts on products ranging up to 70% off.

Adrian Chen / Gawker:
Internet Store Accidentally Prices Everything $49.99, Loses $1.6 million (Updated)  —  6pm.com says it erroneously capped the price of everything in their store at $49.99 on Friday and lost $1.6 million in a matter of hours.  And someone got a $1,400 GPS system cheap.  (Or this is all viral marketing.)
Alexander Vaughn / App Advice:
Leaked White iPhone HD Hits The Web?  —  There you go again, the rumor of a white iPhone HD started last week by some leaked spare parts is about to get much more momentum.  Indeed, the same source has now published some shots of what it claims to be the actual device.
Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
When do you throw a CEO's privacy under the bus?  —  It's interesting that lots of people who really don't like Facebook's privacy don't get mad when journalists and bloggers put into public view Steve Jobs' emails to them.  —  Today I got an email from Mark Zuckerberg, CEO/founder of Facebook.
Nilay Patel / Engadget:
Google TV: everything you ever wanted to know  —  Google made some waves yesterday when it announced the new Google TV platform, backed by major players like Sony, Logitech, Intel, Dish Network, and Best Buy.  Built on Android and featuring the Chrome browser with a full version of Flash Player 10.1 …

Jan Ozer / StreamingMedia.com:
First Look: H.264 and VP8 Compared  —  VP8 is now free, but if the quality is substandard, who cares?  Well, it turns out that the quality isn't substandard, so that's not an issue, but neither is it twice the quality of H.264 at half the bandwidth.  See for yourself.
Thanks:rawmeet
Andrew Mager / ZDNet:
Best of TechCrunch Disrupt Hack Day Projects  —  When people hear the world “hack”, they think of something negative: a spammer or troll trying to get at your personal information.  But a hack, in the context of Hack Day, means to build something interesting in a short amount of time.
Discussion: TechCrunch and CrunchGear
Paul / Music Machinery:
The Swinger  —  One of my favorite hacks at last weekend's Music Hack Day is Tristan's Swinger.  The Swinger is a bit of python code that takes any song and makes it swing.  It does this be taking each beat and time-stretching the first half of each beat while time-shrinking the second half.
Michael Gartenberg / Engadget:
Entelligence: Is Android fragmented or is this the new rate of innovation?  —  Entelligence is a column by technology strategist and author Michael Gartenberg, a man whose desire for a delicious cup of coffee and a quality New York bagel is dwarfed only by his passion for tech.
Discussion: Technologizer, The Tao of Mac and GartenBlog, Thanks:atul
Robert Scoble / Scobleizer:
Are these cloud-based social-feed enterprise disrupters boxing in Microsoft Sharepoint?  —  SocialWok is doing some interesting stuff with the Google ecosystem.  I met up with them in the hallway at Google IO and I came away from the meeting wondering if they will stay an independent company for very long.
Thanks:scobleizer
John Gruber / Daring Fireball:
Post-I/O Thoughts  —  Post-Google I/O, there's not much room left to see iPhone-vs.-Android as anything other than an all-out war.  What we've got here is a good old-fashioned epic rivalry.  —  It's exciting, vicious, fun to watch, and ultimately should prove to be excellent news for consumers.
