Emo fanboy-ism can turn abruptly the other direction on occasion. Apple found that out this week as some declared this Monday's WWDC Keynote the worst ever, and that it signified the beginning of something bad for Cupertino. Some humorously found a way to blame it on Microsoft, yet again. (Poor Billy.) »
There was a reason ZFS wasn't named-checked as one of Leopard's 10 (not so) new features at WWDC 07—despite declarations by Sun's CEO, Jonathan Schwartz, yesterday Apple denied ZFS's presence in Leopard. Put another way by Brian Croll, senior director of product marketing for OS X: "ZFS is not happening." Ouch. »
You all know Steve's favorite phrase other than "one more thing" is BOOM! Well there were definitely less booms at this this keynote than at Macworld '07. In fact, by our count, there were only eight. That's seven fewer than Macworld's 15. Of course the question that all of our financially minded readers are asking… »
The Safari 3 beta went live not much more than an hour ago. This is actually my second attempt to post this using Safari on Vista since fidgeting with my bookmarks took it down smoldering, along with what I'd already written—but it was going pretty well until that point. »
This post may be intended for the three Giz readers who didn't know Steve Jobs was going to give a keynote speech in San Francisco today at Apple's World Wide Developers Convention. I am ensconced just a block away, and will soon join the throng as it crowds in close to hear... »
You're all familiar with the features announced for Leopard at last year's WWDC: Time Machine, Spaces, and new iChat/Mail apps. But there's definitely going to be more. »
Apple's annual WWDC is just around the corner, and you guys all know where to come for up-to-the-second coverage of all that's going to be unveiled there. The Keynote? That's 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., PST, but come early to get some pre-game coverage as well. »
Hey there. Can't wait for the show on Monday. WWDC 2007. The keynote will be at 10am, PST, on Monday the 11th. Here's a pre show edition of the Apple non-news.
•WWDC banners show stars, moons, galaxies, even. But no Apple hardware. Like always.
•The mysterious 12th app pushing down the original 11th in the iPhone… »
For some really weird reason, I've been invited to half a dozen press meetings scheduled to occur next Monday. Which is insane. You guys know what Monday is for geeks and tech writers, right? »
Hola muchachos! This is just a reminder that Apple's WWDC is just a month away (June 11), and that you can look forward to seeing a feature-complete version of Leopard demoed at the keynote/conference. Attending developers will be getting a new beta version—not the feature-complete one that will be shown—to take home… »
Apple just released some more official details on WWDC, including the time (10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a,m)., the date (June 11), and the topic (a feature-complete version of Leopard). Attendees and developers will get a beta to take home in order to test, and will ship—this is in their own words—this October. »
Seeing how 2006's WWDC Keynote was only 1.5 hours, the announcement that Apple's blocking off 3 hours makes us smell what the Rock is cooking (a.k.a., lift our eyebrows in a comical yet masculine way). What do we think's going to happen? Well, we think Apple will formally unveil the iPhone features we didn't see and… »
For consumers who are trying to get a whole bunch of new products and details out of Apple's WWDC event in June, let us just warn you now. You'll be disappointed. The WWDC is for Apple developers as GDC is for game developers, which means iPod and hardware launches are unlikely. Then again, the iPhone could be making… »
