Here's a look at Wednesday June 9, 2010:

It wouldn't be a day after a Steve Jobs keynote without some bigger picture takes. Larry Dignan looks ahead at the bottom line implications of a new phone that comes out a week before the end of the quarter while Sam Diaz chimes in about AT&T holding Apple back on the innovation front. There's also a take on how the MiFi breakdown could have been prevented and a question that asks if the iPhone 4 can replace the digital camera or camcorder. Also: Is Apple trying to claim it invented video calling?

Google is on a Caffeine high. The company rolled out its new Web search index, called Caffeine, on Tuesday, promising 50 percent fresher results. In a nutshell, Caffeine will continually index the Web.

HP isn't giving up on printing, even in a time when the cloud is gaining momentum. The company has launched a broad cloud printing initiative that would allow users to print from any device, including mobile phones.

Are PC sales as good as they're going to get? It's a question being asked after a Wall Street analyst downgraded Intel because of a "weakened environment" looking into the third quarter. There are some concerns out there, especially as it relates to Europe.
