WWDC 2008 – Apple’s Scott Frestell talks iPhone SDK

WWDC 2008 – Apple’s Scott Frestell talks iPhone SDK

Now onto the SDK. Scott Forestell has taken the stage to discuss this part of the event. Apparently much of the iPhone code is similar to the desktop version of OS X. APIs include Cocoa Touch, Media Core Service and Core OS, the last of which is very similar to what is seen in OSX. They are particularly proud of the OpenGL implementation, and consider it to be “very fast.”

WWDC 2008 – Steve talks about iPhone Enterprise

As you all know, we've got our very own Vincent on the inside at the 2008 WWDC show over in California. He's one of 52,000 people in attendance today. Apparently Apple sold out the event rather quickly, and hasn't been able to find anywhere larger to host the show. Perhaps it's time for Apple to just build their own massive stadium.

WWDC 2008 – Less than an hour to go

WWDC 2008 – Less than an hour to go

The Apple store is down, the rumor mill has reached a point of crazed teeth-grinding and iPhone Buzz is registered and ready to cover the Steve Jobs keynote opening WWDC 2008.  Remember, when the show kicks off at 10AM San Francisco time we'll be live blogging the whole event at http://live.iphonebuzz.com, but the chat has started early with Vincent showing off what gifts Apple is showering on bloggers and journalists. 

Mac Fusion entry-level developer’s platform tipped for WWDC

Mac Fusion entry-level developer’s platform tipped for WWDC

With mere hours to go until the WWDC 2008 keynote kicks off, it almost seems pointless to speculate on what Steve Jobs might announce as his "one more thing".  But it's Monday morning and the tubes are clogged with 3G iPhone rumors, so it's actually a relief to see something else with an Apple logo on it.  This image purports to be pre-announcement leakage of the Mac Fusion, an entry-level machine for new OS X developers.

Live Coverage of WWDC 2008 Keynote: Monday 9th at 10am!

There's just a day to go until Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2008 kicks off in San Francisco, and of course we'll be there Live Blogging the Steve Jobs keynote.  This year Apple have confirmed WWDC will be all about OS X for iPhone and OS X for Leopard, but the expectation is that Jobs will also announce the 3G iPhone during his opening keynote at 10AM.  Our live coverage will be at http://live.iphonebuzz.com/ with exclusive news and media from the event.

Jobs keynote confirmed for WWDC ’08 but no hint of 3G iPhone

Jobs keynote confirmed for WWDC ’08 but no hint of 3G iPhone

Apple has confirmed today that CEO Steve Jobs will open the 2008 Worldwide Developers Conference this coming June 9th, in a keynote address beginning at 10am in San Francisco. The company has also suggested that the focus of the five day event will be both OS X Leopard and OS X for iPhone; there has so far been no mention of the 3G iPhone, although considering Apple's usual degrees of secrecy that's not surprising. Instead, they're publicising it as the first proper opportunity for developers to work alongside Apple's own engineers in coding for the upcoming iPhone 2.0 software.

3G iPhone this month and Mac Tablet at WWDC 08?

3G iPhone this month and Mac Tablet at WWDC 08?

We’ve heard so many rumors about 3G iPhone in the past several weeks and spy shots of the device are still popping up here and there but still unverified whether those images are genuine. However, the dwindling down of the iPhone’s availability in UK and US making it very hard not to jump to conclusion that the 3G iPhone is coming out. Apple stores and AT&T stores reported making the iPhone unavailable for orders.

WWDC 2007: Leopard’s new Finder Video

WWDC 2007: Leopard’s new Finder Video

The visual glitz factor in Leopard is definitely high, with traditional tools like search being augmented with alternative views such as CoverFlow. There's already been some discussion about whether this is merely eye-candy or has some real value to the power-user, but you can decide for yourself with SlashGear's video from the WWDC Keynote.

Undoubtedly live previews of documents, presentations, video and music direct from the Finder pane are impressive, but I can understand some people doubting its real usefulness. Personally I think it's just a further example of how integrated search can be into a system, and of how Apple are attempting to cater for more than the traditional style of browsing; more choice is seldom a bad thing.

WWDC 2007: iChat media sharing & real-time effects Video

WWDC 2007: iChat media sharing & real-time effects Video

Continuing our video footage from WWDC07, here's Apple's Phil Schiller demonstrating the new features of Leopard's iChat instant-messaging software. The focus here is definitely on better communication and streamlining the way information is exchanged; in the first half of the demo we see the photo, video and document sharing - as easy as dragging a spreadsheet, say, into the iChat window - while in the second half it's a more lighthearted look at iChat's real-time video processing effects.

The Star Wars holograph effect is particularly impressive - I love that occasional shimmer!

WWDC 2007: Safari 3 head-to-head with IE7 Video

In a Keynote heavily dominated by Apple's next incarnation of OS X, one of the things that we can take away and play with today is the beta of Safari 3 which is now also available for Windows. Check out SlashGear's video of Jobs' demo, pitting Safari against IE7 and proving that their new browser is twice as fast as Microsoft's finest.
