Jobs's comments were smart and had some truth to them. These comments are absurd. More importantly, Jobs waits until he has a shipping product before declaring victory. Doing so before you've shipped anything does, indeed, look like reactionary 'lashing out.' And neither of these companies have an iPad competitor on the market.
Maybe it's true that there'll be no iPhone hardware at WWDC. Jim Dalrymple is a credible source, so let's accept that. On the other hand, none of the other recent rumours are credible so it's still possible that the following is true: 1. There will still be an iOS 5 preview in April, as usual. 2. We won't see the iPhone 5 at WWDC. But we'll still see it in this fiscal year. (It could even be in May or July.) Just because a bunch of rumours all come along at once, and you...
That's stupid. The invitation says "at this yearÂ’s conference we are going to unveil the future of iOS and Mac OS." If that suggests we're not going to see iOS 5 before June it also suggests that we're not going to see the next version of Mac OS before June. But we've already had TWO previews of the next version of Mac OS (at the Back to the Mac event and on their website after the developer release). What exactly are they going to 'unveil' about Mac OS? You can't just...
It's obvious Apple is on a yearly release schedule with iOS and simply cuts features if they're not ready in time. Maybe a major feature has been pushed back (like the cloud-based stuff) but I'd still expect Apple to ship iOS 5 with the iPhone 5. Even if it was a minor update and "deserved" to be named iOS 4.x, I still think they'd call it iOS 5 if it ships with the 5th generation iPhone.
The acceleration of disinformation about iOS 5 probably means we're going to see it soon. Same thing happened before the iPad 2 was unveiled.
I ordered online in the UK. It was saying "2-3 weeks" as soon as ordering opened. My predicted delivery date is 26th April. Hopefully they're just being conservative with their estimates and I'll get it before then.
I've been wondering if OS X 10.8 will just be a version of iOS 6 or 7. The way I see this happening is that Apple will add a "Mac" UI idiom to iOS similar to the Chameleon Project that will allow iOS apps to run in Lion with a Mac UI.http://chameleonproject.org/ But using a single universal binary that can be compiled in XCode. So you could make a single universal iPhone/iPad/Mac app. Then the Mac and iOS developer programs would be combined and the Mac App Store would...
It's insane. Here we have a major corporation that just unceremoniously dumped its existing plans and went back to the drawing board after merely seeing the competition (which has been out for all of a week). We don't even have iPad 2 sales figures yet. There's nothing good that can be taken away from this story. Unless you're an Android fanboi, that is, in which case now is the time to argue why you're going to be buying one of these new tablets! The multitasking has...
"App Store" was not in general use before Apple's App Store. In fact, before Apple came along, hardly anyone said "app." Now it's common usage. But Apple popularised it. Take a look at this Google Trend data: http://www.google.com/trends?q=app%2...n%2C+app+store "App" is now a more common search term than "application" and is about equal for news references. You can clearly see this started with the launch of the App Store in 2008. So I think Apple has a good case...
The Register is basically a tech tabloid and they never miss an opportunity to take a shot at Apple. It sounds like it's probably just a bug.
