WWDC 2009 | Highlights | new iPhone release: iPhone 3GS date and information

Highlights from WWDC 2009 Keynote: iPhone OS 3.0 available worldwide June 17th My weapon of choice this year for the Keynote stream was http://www.macrumorslive.com.  They have a good stream text feed, and an even better streaming pictures feed.  The pictures updated more often than the text, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they caught every […]

Sure enough, when I […]

Apple’s last Macworld: Going out with a “big BANG” or moving on?

I’ve seen quite a few remarks this morning on twitter and other feeds that keep restating that they thought Apple was going to go out with a big bang – but they didn’t.  I don’t specifically have an opinion, but I want to at least throw another train of thought out there. The whole mindset […]
