BTW, in the past Apple has reserved slots at WWDC to show off new technologies, hardware, etc.

Generally there are a handful of such slots 'TBA', and other already announced slots morph post-keynote to adapt to the new information.

This year there are 32 TBA slots, before expectation of others changing.

You *think* they might have some new stuff to show off???

From Apple's own information:

"Apple today announced that Steve Jobs will kick off its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote on Monday, June 23, 2003, beginning at 10:00 a.m. (PDT) at San Francisco's Moscone West...

... expanded labs with the latest Mac systems where developers can port and test their code and get technical assistance from the Apple engineers directly responsible for the technologies."

may 11 1981 - Bob Marley dies

Reggae legend Bob Marley dies of cancer on this day in 1981 in Miami Beach, Florida. Marley, born in Jamaica in 1945, began recording in his late teens. He formed his band, the Wailers, in 1963. In the early 1970s, the band's records began to catch on outside Jamaica, assisted by Eric Clapton's cover of "I Shot the Sheriff." Marley's music influenced countless later musicians.

the WWDC, small APPLE Expo -Lionel -18:51:09
If one compares the list of the exhibitors of the WWDC 2002 and that of the WWDC 2003 , one can realize that this expo reserved for the developers is changing. There are more companies which sell of Hardware like Harman Multimedia, Initio or UPS. The exhibitors are already more numerous than in 2002 whereas it is still possible to be registered.
The WWDC thus exceeds the strict limits of the development to become a significant exposure for the manufacturers of hardware.

List of Exhibitors: http://www.xplain.com/pavilions/wwdc...3_ex_list.html

It brings up the question, is it by chance or by design, that WWDC has an increased emphasis on hardware exhibitions this year? Right now I tend to think that it is probably more by chance, probably due to the de-emphasis on MWNY. Still it may be interesting to monitor this as well as how many companies exhibit at both events.

What I wish they'd do is come up with a virtual browsing method whereby we could virtually walk through an exhibit and see all the cool stuff. We could also see sales presentations, and even read literature about the products. Everything would be available online. The reason for this is that there are tons of us that would love to go and see all this stuff yet are either unable to physically go, or don't have the money for the trip. It just seems like it would be such a great idea.

Well it's obvious from that list that there is no 970 coming to the Mac...IBM isn't listed as one of the exhibitors.

Agreed, that would be great. I would love to go but, since I am not a developer, $1300 plus travel and lodging is a lot of money to watch Steve roll out the 970's.

At least that is what my wife tells me.

I think it's because QT Live! is now part of WWDC.

I agree, that it would be nice for us "poorer" folks. However, while it is technically feasible, it really isn't cost effective yet. The costs of production, bandwith, etc, are still very high, and far outweight the benefit received by the "participants, both companies and individuals" who would have to cover the cost. Still, I wouldn't be surprised to see that happen in the next few years.

Just curious if anyone knows, has IBM ever exhibited at any Apple event in recent history?

Forget to provide the link for the 2002 exhibitors: Here it is.

I just noticed Motorola isn't a presenter at WWDC or MACWORLD NY03 so just because IBM isnt there might not mean anything.
post #70 of 771


Moto isn't a presenter either. (Doh! MacUsers got it). (Nor Intel nor AMD for the last ten of you that think OS X for x86 for consumers is going to happen -- corporate users or servers? We'll have to wait and see).

This must mean that Apple will be selling pretty, empty, plastic cases with a slip of paper inside saying "Coming in '04".

Or that we will go through the tired old routine of Apple support.

Scene 1:

Apple care person: "Apple care. How can I help you?"
Customer: "I just bought one of your new Powermacsand when I came home I discovered it didn´t have a CPU in it"
ACP (flipping through the knowledge base): "Hmm haven´t heard of that one before. Have you tried to reset the PRAM?"
Customer: "But it hasn´t got a CPU!?!"
ACP: "Hmm I think I have to ask you for your number so the next level of support can get back to you."
Customer: "When wil that happen?"
ACP: "Not later than before the end of next month"

Apple care person: "Apple care. How can I help you?"
Customer2: "I just bought one of your new Powermacsand when I came home I discovered it didn´t have a CPU in it"
ACP (flipping through the knowledge base): "Hmm haven´t heard of that one before..."

Scene 2 a month later:

Steve (with the RDF off): "No the missing CPU is a feature! We are doing people a favor by not including that PoS G4 chip.)

Scene 3 half a year later well hiddden in http://docs.info.apple.com/article.h...m=dontlookhere

"CPU exchange program

To qualify for this program you have to sent your non-existing CPU to our region office in Mogadishu_and we will try our outmost to replace it with...err...soething"

May 12 1908, Nathan Stubblefield patents radio

Nathan Stubblefield obtained a patent for wireless voice transmission on May 12, 1908. Stubblefield had demonstrated his invention in 1902 in Fairmont Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when his voice was transmitted more than a mile via radio waves. However, Stubblefield was secretive about his invention and did not encourage its promotion abroad.

Apple introduced an improved version of its Macintosh system software, called System 7.0, on this day in 1991. The new system let all Macintoshes share files in a network without the intervention of a server, and it also introduced "balloon help"-pop-up text windows offering helpful hints.

May 14 1943, United States and Britain plan Operation Pointblank

1943 United States and Britain plan Operation Pointblank
On this day in 1943, U.S. and Great Britain chiefs of staff, meeting in Washington, D.C., approve and plot out Operation Pointblank, a joint bombing offensive to be mounted from British airbases.
Operation Pointblank's aim was grandiose and comprehensive: "The progressive destruction and dislocation of the German military and economic system, and the undermining of the morale of the German people." It was also intended to set up "final combined operations on the continent." In other words, it was intended to set the stage for one fatal blow that would bring Germany to its knees.
The immediate targets of Operation Pointblank were to be submarine construction yards and bases, aircraft factories, ball bearing factories, rubber and tire factories, oil production and storage plants, and military transport-vehicle factories and stores. Ironically, the very day planning for Pointblank began in Washington, the Germans shot down 74 British four-engine bombers as the Brits struck a munitions factory near Pilsen. Joseph Goebbels, writing in his diary, recorded that the biggest setback about the British raid on the factory was that the drafting room was destroyed.

May 15 1990, New Cray supercomputer
Cray Research introduced a new, cheaper supercomputer on May 15, 1990. The machine, priced at about $2.2 million, was considerably cheaper than Cray's other computers, priced between $5 million and $23 million.
Cray Research was founded by Seymour Cray, whose work for UNIVAC, Remington Rand, and Control Data Corporation helped develop the modern computer. The supercomputer developed in 1963 under his watch at Control Data Corporation was far faster than existing mainframes: The military used the machine to simulate nuclear explosions and break codes. In 1972, Cray founded Cray Research, which became a leader in high-end machines. In addition to military purposes, these machines were used to model hurricanes and the formation of galaxies. In 1989, Cray spun off Cray Computer Corporation to make even faster and more powerful computers.

May 16 1888, Phonograph record

Inventor Emile Berliner demonstrated the first modern phonograph record on this day in 1888. The record was a flat disk with spiraled grooves, which was easier to duplicate for the mass market than the recording cylinder developed by Thomas Edison. For this reason, the flat record quickly replaced Thomas Edison's cylinders.
Berliner, a German immigrant who worked for Alexander Graham Bell's telephone company, also developed several other important improvements on existing inventions. In 1877, the year after Graham invented the telephone, Berliner developed an improved telephone receiver. He also developed a method for mass-producing records.
