Headlines and announcements originating from two big technology events are filling Twitter's most talked about trends on the morning of June 7.

The company is waving goodbye to its MobileMe service and will welcome in the cloud-based era with over-the-air synchronizing through iCloud and free photo, text and video messaging for iOS devices with "iMessage."
"Probably my favorite part of today's keynote was how Steve Jobs expressed his sheer hatred for MobileMe. 'It wasn't our finest hour,'" commented microbloggers using the fourth place term "MobileMe."
Sony is also gaining attention on Twitter after announcing the name and price of its next generation portable, "PlayStation Vita," at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
