Today at 1 pm Eastern, Steve Jobs will take to the stage at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in California to usher in some new Apple software products.

Though he's technically out on medical leave, Jobs is apparently able enough to do this, which is a great sign for his health (we hope).

We know he'll be introducing something called iCloud, a cloud service that many speculate will offer streaming music as well as other capacities.

iOS 5 for iPhone, iPad and Touch will likely get a big update, and the new operating system -- dubbed Lion -- for the Mac platform will get a modest makeover.

Many seem to be guessing that Apple is heading in a direction that ties all three offerings together -- a cloud service with Apple's desktop and mobile platforms.

There are numerous sites to catch blogging updates about the Apple announcement today at 1 pm. I'll try to do some live updating myself here. Stay tuned.
