I think that among the better things about the new Apple, and evidence that Apple fandom is like a
cult religion, is that they can make certain days become mini-holidays. Next to a Jobs-keynoted Macworld, it's events like the one coming up on monday that leave many among the faithful with christmas-eve style anticipation.
A concern about hardware speeds was expressed. Jobs first made point that clock speed does not necessarily tell the whole story, and that even Intel is emphasizing diminishing importance of clock speed as it release new portable processors that are faster at slower clock speeds. He then acknowledged that it is a problem, and that Apple is very aware of the issue. He said "there will be a time" when Apple would speak about its relationship with Motorola, and that the particular shareholder who asked the question would be invited, if he desired.(emphasis added by me). Now that should start the speculation machines to go into overdrive.
