• Apple's getting ready to announce its new iPhone at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco - and John Gruber at Daring Fireball, who is almost always the most accurate reader of Apple's tea leaves, agrees with our report: 32GB, faster processor, video recording. Probably no cheaper iPhone nano, though there may be some price cuts. Name? Current speculation is either iPhone video or the more obtuse iPhone 3GS. The announcement will start at 6pm UK time: check back to the Technology Blog for updates.
• The tragic death of Stanford University professor Rajeev Motwani, who mentored hundreds of startup companies - most notably Google - is still reverberating around the hi-tech industry.

Guardian columnist Jeff Jarvis was among those moved to respond.
