WWDC 2007 Keynote Recap
There are two events that every Apple fan and blogger look forward to during the year -- World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) and Macworld. The likely reason for the excitement is that these are the times when Apple opens up and shares details of what they have been working on for the past year.
During the WWDC keynote today Steve Jobs covered as much as humanly possible in about 1 hour 20 minutes (the scheduled time was 1 hour 30 minutes). If he would have attempted to covered any more it may have seemed rushed.
Every Apple related blog out there is covering the news today. At this point it is pretty hard to come up with unique story, but that won't keep us from sharing our ideas.
It was nice of Steve/Apple to present the award to Intel for their efforts during the processor transition. This will likely be the last keynote where it is highlighted.
The 10 major features that Steve covered were great.
Possible WWDC Agenda
What are we going to hear at WWDC 2007? Here is a summary of the top items that are being discussed around the Internet.
- A peek at some Leopard "Top Secret" features they were held back during WWDC 2006.
- Announcement of a new iMac with an brushed aluminum case.
- Xcode enhancements that allow for easier and faster development.
- An update on the iPhone development efforts.
- The usual WWDC topics -- updates on retail, software sales figures, market share, etc.
A German site has supposedly acquired the Keynote Transcript for WWDC07 (translated). This seems like way too much for one keynote address. On his best day Steve could rush through about half this list. But even half the list would be great!
