Daily Round-up: Live action from WWDC, Nokia Lumia 900 review, Twitter at the Euros, & sex, drugs & dancing from Microsoft.

Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) always provides news, products and talking-points aplenty, and we'll be tracking it from the offset at 6pm today, via our liveblog. With discussion already underway, readers have been flocking to the page, which will give you all the highlights from the first WWDC since Steve Jobs died last year. Expect iOS 6, Macbooks, and much, much more.

Also arriving on ITProPortal today is an in-depth review of a big phone with a big buzz - the Nokia Lumia 900. Everything you need to know about the flagship smartphone is in here, and we'll tell you if the Windows Phone-running device is worth shelling out for. What will it score out of 10?

One of today's news headlines is the report that Google has been given until July to defend itself in the European Commission's high-profile antitrust investigation. The probe stems from complaints the search giant uses its power to promote its own products over those of competitors.

Still in its infancy, the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine hasn't quite instilled full football-fever just yet, but England's first match tonight, and this feature from James Laird, may change all that. James discusses the Denmark squad's complete Twitter-ban, as the debate surrounding public figures and their use of the social network re-emerges.

On days like today, the news-spreading power of Twitter is probably cursed by big companies like Microsoft, as people share the rather embarrassing PR mess the company finds itself in - after a Windows Azure cloud presentation in Norway was opened with an inexplicable dance routine and song, littered with sex and drugs references. Many were offended by lines including, "The words ‘Micro' and ‘Soft' don't apply to my penis". Nice. Perhaps launching a Windows Phone clothing line (?!) will distract everyone from the affair... Or perhaps not.
