No Keynote at Apple Expo Paris

Apple announced that, contrary to expectations, there will be no opening keynote speech at Apple Expo Paris on September 20 through 24.

Instead, Apple executives will host a question-and-answer session for the media, according to Macworld.

In a move possibly designed to lessen press attention, Apple revealed the information on a U.S. holiday weekend.

Steve Jobs has been the traditional Expo keynote speaker, although the announcement of the iMac G5 at Paris Expo 2004 was made by Phil Schiller while Jobs was undergoing medical treatments.
