    Apple.com has a link for WWDC on the home page.  I don't think they've done this in the past.  Anyway on their site I noticed how nice the design looks and how the apps they feature on iPad and iPhone are so far away from Apple's own design language in iOS.  I have a feeling we will get a nice surprise come WWDC.  Grid of icons probably won't go away but most of the ugly will be banished.

    OMG!


    Roman. Numerals.


    So obvious. How can everyone not see the obvious. Everyone is in for a big surprise come June 10th.

    How ya figger? The announcement seems to read:


     


    "The same conference we have every year, covering the same topics we address every year, at the same place we do it every year, at the same time we do it every year!"


     


    There's nothing wrong with that whatsoever, but somehow I've missed whatever you found in that to suggest a "hallmark" event. Dish.

    Jeez, no wonder Wall Street shits its collective pants every time Apple says anything. People let their expectations get completely out of hand, then are disappointed when presented with news that is merely "good" instead of HOLYABRACADBRAMAZING!


     


    It's a Developers' Conference, not a product expo. Settle down, Beavis.

    I seem to recall some HW announcements at most of the developer conferences. That said, if they are demoing both a new OS X and iOS it doesn't seem like there will be much time for any HW.

    So you're saying someone has shared what Apple plans to present? If so, what? Where can we see that information?


     


    If not, the word on the street has about the same weight and value as the word on the forum.


     


    I understand being interested in seeing what new tools are available to app developers, but giddy speculation just creates unrealistic expectations that lead to Apple bashing when they don't materialize.

    Not anymore. In North America we stopped using roman numerals for copyright dates on TV shows decades ago.

    No, but somewhere around XXX years ago (about III decades ago).

    Did developers have previews of iOS and OS X prior to WWDC last year? If WWDC is the first time anyone gets a glimpse of iOS 7 or 10.9 there may not be oom in the keynote for much else. Still I think Apple knows hardware is what gets talked about most so I could see a new MacPro or other Mac refreshes announced at the beginning of the keynote.

    I'm kind of hoping Apple does a little leaking to some of their favorite bloggers. Just to get some positive buzz out there.

    The design looks like an iWatch.

    I have sat on the "wall" of discussions amongst Apple's most trusted bloggers at App.net, etc., and have heard the same thing as well.


     


    Personally, I think the logo of the conference is a sign of what to expect. What delicious colours!

    Of course! Neon leather calendars!! They'll use bright colors to distract people from the skeuomorphism.

    People will be like 'oh yuck that leath.... ooooh purple'.

    An OLED TV is actually a possibility. It's the next revolution in TV and Apple is spending money on it:

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/greatspeculations/2013/02/20/tim-cook-does-not-like-oled-but-spends-money-on-it/

    "Recently Apple hired Jueng Jil Lee, an expert in OLED displays. Lee was previously a senior researcher at LG where he worked on a printed AMOLED television."

    TVs are fairly badly designed aesthetically. The Apple TV is a decent enough product but 2 million per quarter isn't that great. They can sell 2 million TVs per quarter and make 10x the profit. It's not going to come close to their iOS products in volume but they can get $1b per quarter profit out of it.

    Samsung is profiteering on OLED just now, as is Sony. Apple has nothing to lose in that market because they aren't cannibalising their own lower-end products. They have screen lamination tech with anti-glare and with printed OLED, they can make displays razor thin.

    It's not entirely suitable for WWDC as it wouldn't create a new gold-rush in app development for a new device but it does offer the possibility to address some latency issues with Airplay. It's also easier to market apps suitable for Airplay. Apple doesn't do much marketing for Apple TV which is understandable as it's low profit but they definitely would market a TV.

    I think the logo is a clue related to a future WWDC in the year 2600, because that would be the actual reflection...

    Maybe they went with roman numerals because Mac OS X is a roman numeral version number, so maybe it's a clue about iOS integration/merging with OS X?
