WWDC 2012: What’s not there is more interesting

Rumors ahead of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2012 (WWDC 2012) are flying thick and fast, with speculation, leaks and rumors all mounting as to what Tim Cook & Co. will reveal in the opening keynote. Apple puts on a good show, that's for certain, but it's sometimes more interesting to look at what doesn't make it to the stage than what products and services get their moment under the spotlight.

Mountain Lion ditches older Macs

Apple Mountain Lion will force many Mac models into legacy status, with no support for the upcoming OS X refresh for numerous pre-2007 MacBooks, MacBook Pros and desktops.

Apple reportedly questions future of the Mac Pro

Apple is reportedly questioning the future of its line of Mac Pro full-sized desktop computers.
