The annual Apple Worldwide Developer Conference kicked off yesterday. Despite this being of a lesser profile than consumer shows, the media was in a frenzied mood nonetheless. The keynotes and product announcements seem more like religious affairs than business as usual. As evidenced by a trio of livebloggers from the event: boingboing, engadget (with by far most pictures of the three) and gizmondo. Though there’s always someone who just didn’t drink enough kool-aid.
No new iPods (as expected), desktop Intel machine looks powerful and pricey. Leopard looks interesting in preview, though virtual desktops have been standard fare for ages. The new big cat will be here in 2007, and guys in Redmond will scramble to have something comparable out as Vista.
