Dave Winer said he was going to have an exclusive after the SteveNote.

>The announcement is over at 2PM Eastern, now the bits the others don't have: 1. Apple is not going into the software business, their operating system will not run on other vendor's hardware. So you won't be running the Mac OS on Dell, HP or IBM, for example. and 2. While Windows is not explicitly supported, they won't do anything to prevent Windows from running on their hardware. #

Well, 1. I think anyone putting 2 minutes thought into the idea knew this would be the case, so it's not really news, and 2. news.com beat Dave to the punch by… at least 8 minutes. ;-)
