Apple WWDC 2009 - Τα νέα μαθαίνονται

Apple WWDC 2009

H ετήσια γιορτή της Apple στο World Wide Developers Conference αρχίζει σε 3 ώρες στο San Fransisco και ότι μαθαίνουμε ακόμα και από τόσο μακρυά θα το ανεβάσουμε. Οι φήμες οργιάζουν για το νέο iphone [iphone 4G] μέχρι και το Apple itablet αλλά και την επιστροφή του Steve Jobs στα πεπραγμένα. Stay Tuned. Ηδη οι ουρές όσων είναι να το παρακολουθήσουν είναι μεγάλες.
Ενδιαφέρουσα η σημειολογία στο πανώ της WWDC09. Φαίνεται καινούργιο σήμα για το Quicktime. WTF? 64bit? Μαλλον για το Snow Leopard. Πάντως οι άνθρωποι πρέπει να είναι παράδειγμα για παρουσιάσεις και events. Ξέρουν να δημιουργούν σασπένς. wwdc crowdΤο Apple Store είναι κλειστό και μάλλον περιέχει ήδη τα πράγματα που θα παρουσιαστούν σε λιγότερο από μια ώρα.
Το Multithreading θα είναι μια από τις αναφορές στην παρουσίαση, έχει εμφανιστεί και ειδικό σηματακι για πρωτη φορά. "Threading has left the station. Grand Central Dispatch" Μερικά γεγονότα πριν ξεκινησει η παρουσίαση: οι γυναίκες είναι είδος πολυτελείας, μονο άντρες εκει μέσα - wifi υπάρχει αλλά για πόσο ακόμα? - πρώτα αφήνουν τους εκπροσωπους του τύπου - μουσική παίζει τους Phoenix. Και τους Radiohead, μάλλον το να δίνεις δωρεάν αλμπουμ στο Internet σου δίνει καλό credit. H παρουσίαση ξεκινά!
9:57AM "Good morning ladies and gentlemen -- welcome to WWDC 2009 -- please silence all cellphones and PAGING DEVICES."
