That last bit suggests that they are actually the same already. The only thing 'above the kernel' is UI, a few select drivers etc.

So why couldn't they be merged even more in terms of cx interaction paradigms. So long as they don't pull a Windows 8 and try to shoehorn mouse features on the tablet and vice versa. Or remove the Finder etc options from the desktop.

But the article could be wrong. And likely is since all the twitter reports are comings from folks that tried to buy and got an error on the last step of submitting payment (and starting credit card authorization).

NOT that folks that tried way after the sell out, or didn't bother to try to get tickets, are suddenly getting calls cause Apple decided they can squeeze another 2k folks into the conference. Which is what the articles are implying.

The registration system didn't allow some people to complete their transactions. How's that sensationalistic? Are you high?

You weren't fast enough in doing it, is all. Do you similarly complain when limited edition items run out? You simply were not fast enough.


You want a conspiracy theory, go right ahead. But it's called a conspiracy theory for a reason. I have one myself in this regard as to the limited edition DeLorean shoes released by Nike. lol.gif

I was fast enough, but was simply served a bad login page upon checkout.  However, I'm not interested in going on a witch hunt about it.  And, after contacting their WWDC support about it, I'm satisfied with how they're handling the situation.

I don't see him or anyone else talking about a conspiracy theory. You're seriously losing it, ... Again. Get a grip, dude.

Nor did I say so. I was posing the idea myself. Get over yourself, please, and actually read my posts before commenting on them.

I did. And not just this one. You are jumping on other members for no good reason ... again. You've been down this path before, but have recently taken a turn for the normal. Looks like you're off track again.

Amazing how much nonsense is out there about WWDC. Go to c|net, Engadget, the Verge etc. and the comments sections are filled with people who think all the tickets are gobbled up by fanboys and the media or they're scalped. Even though the rules are very clear. In order to get a ticket you need to have a paid developer account. And the tickets are not transferable, so what good would scalping do? Plus there's a separate process for the keynote and the media. The media isn't buying $1600 tickets just to get into the keynote.

The anti-Apple trolls are clearly losing it. WWDC wasn't supposed to sell out in 2 minutes. It was supposed to take longer than last year to fit their meme that Apple is DOOMED and no longer cool. Lets not forget the article on ZDNET using selective data to suggest developers are leaving Apple's platforms in droves.

So media sources have paid developer accounts because they think they might get some "inside information" at WWDC?
