WWDC '09 Instructional Videos Available on iTunes

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Articles & Resources" @ 08:00 AM

"If attending this year's Worldwide Developers Conference just wasn't in the cards, Apple has produced a collection of videos that cover all 126 instructional sessions from the conference. While WWDC ticket holders get free access, those who missed out can buy the videos via ADC on iTunes."

The videos were divided into two groups, one on Mac development and the other on iPhone development. Each group is $299.00 USD, but you can buy all the videos for $499.00 USD. To do this, however, you have to be a registered ADC member or iPhone developer, which isn't too hard since you can become an online-only ADC member for free. The Mac sessions total 13GB, the iPhone ones total 17GB so prepare yourself for some long download times unless you have a FIOS connection or something fast like that.

Lonely Planet San Francisco for Free!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 08:00 AM

"The iTunes App Store offers Lonely Planet's San Francisco City Guide for free. Particularly handy if you're going to be attending the upcoming WWDC, this app is $16 off and the best deal we've seen for a guide to San Francisco."

I've never used any of these products but the reviews seem to be pretty good. Regardless, it is a $15.99 USD app normally, so getting it for free seems like a no-brainer doesn't it? I picked one up even though I'm not going to WWDC, but we are planning on a trip down the coast to San Francisco at some point this year. I normally use the printed guide books when I go to a city so I'm looking forward to seeing how well this type of guide works on the iPhone. I won't get the whole effect (ie the GPS feature) but can't beat the price! Unknown how long this will be free so snap it up quick!

John Gruber And His Thoughts on a New iPhone

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone & iPod Touch" @ 08:00 AM

"With WWDC09 now just weeks away, rumors and predictions regarding what Apple may reveal at the highly-anticipated, sold-out developers conference in San Francisco are sure to spread like a California wildfire. Anyone interested in being on the right side of such talk would do well to consider the logic and analysis out Thursday from John Gruber, the well-placed author of the blog Daring Fireball, who isn't prone to talking about things he doesn't know a little something about."

Gruber thinks the for sure things are a CPU nearly double what it is now, better camera with video capability and increased memory maximum from 16 GB to 32 GB. After that, it isn't concrete as to what will happen. His sources have given him some possibilities though, and he writes about them on his Daring Fireball blog.

WWDC Keynote Date and Time Released

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 12:00 PM

"Today Apple revealed some more details about the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference via a press release available on their web site. Specifically, they give a firm date and time for the keynote speech of the event, and details about who will be involved."

The Press Release from Apple says the keynote for WWDC will be on June 8 2009 at 10:00 am, and will be given by "team of Apple executives, led by Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing." I don't think it is too much of a shock, to anyone that has been following this story line, that Steve Jobs most likely wouldn't be there because of the health issues. The press release also outlines some of the other activities at WWDC, including over 100 technical sessions over a wide variety of topics, and that developers will be getting a copy of the final Developer Preview release of Snow Leopard.

But if you haven't purchased your WWDC keynote tickets by now you are out of luck as they are indeed sold out.

WWDC '09 Sold Out

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 08:00 AM

http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2...-in-history.ars

"For those who have dilly-dallied in buying your tickets to Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, you have officially run out of luck. Apple updated its ADC site today with a small update at the bottom mentioning that WWDC '09 is now officially sold out. This will mark the second year that WWDC tickets have sold out in the history of the conference-the first being last year."

This little tag greeted anyone checking out the WWDC site at Apple, so if you haven't purchased your tickets for the June 8 through 12th conference, you will have to see if any scalpers show up at the WWDC. Or as an alternative you can always wait for Apple to upload the videos. They haven't announced just what videos will be available but they are supposed to be posted to iTunes after WWDC is done.

The expectation is that this year's WWDC will focus on the iPhone (I can only hope) but they will also include some sessions on Mac and IT related material, and I can only assume Snow Leopard will be in the mix as well.

"Apple began accepting entries for its Apple Design Awards program, the company's program for recognizing what it considers excellent Mac and iPhone development. The ADAs are part of Apple's Developer Connection, and are awarded during the annual World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC), which takes place this year on June 8-12 at Moscone West in San Francisco."

There will be two major categories, one for the iPhone and one for OS X, with up to 4 winners each. Submissions are open now but will close on May 4th, so if you have something to submit, head on over to the WWDC '09 site and fill out the form. The prizes include 15-inch MacBook Pros, 30-inch Apple Cinema Displays, 16GB iPhone 3Gs, 16GB iPod touches, an Apple Developer Connection (ADC) 2009 Premier Membership, reimbursement of their 2009 WWDC E-ticket and a block of, well, something that is engraved.
