TUAW Best of the Week
Welcome to the latest installment of TUAW's best of the week, where we gather up our favorite posts for your easy clicking enjoyment. This week was definitely big in the eyes of Apple enthusiasts as it was WWDC week. Take a look below to find out what was released and the other big posts of the week.

iPhone 2.0 firmware will ship in early July, touch users pay $9.95
Apple announced this week that the next version of the iPhone/iPod touch firmware should ship sometime in early July. Apple also announced many new features that make the iPhone 2.0 firmware something that we are all looking forward to.
The long awaited rumors came true and MobileMe was announced. MobileMe will replace the ever aging .Mac service. MobileMe looks to be an exciting new web service that we can expect later this month (or possibly early next month).
iPhone 3G announced
