Apple begins decorating San Francisco's Moscone Center ahead of next week's WWDC

in General Discussion edited June 2014
Construction crews have started the process of preparing San Francisco's Moscone Center for the June 2 opening of Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, with the first banners going up on Tuesday.




As depicted in a photo from Twitter user KielO, the banners mirror the design of Apple's other promotional materials for the event with small, colorful app icon-style rounded squares of varying sizes arranged to form the Apple logo in negative space. They also sport the conference's 2014 slogan, "Write the code. Change the world."

Earlier Tuesday, Apple quietly announced that they would be live streaming the opening keynote to Macs, iOS devices, PCs, and the Apple TV. The company promised "exciting announcements" from the address that will begin live at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern next Monday.

Among the revelations expected during the speech are new details on Apple's next-generation operating systems, including iOS 8 and OS X 10.10. Many believe that iOS 8 will feature a focus on health and fitness tracking as well as a potential push into home automation, while OS X 10.10 is likely to get a Jony Ive-led overhaul of its user interface.

AppleInsider will be on hand at next Monday's keynote and will bring live updates from the conference throughout the week.

    I like that... "Write the code. Change the world."

    Very "Jobsian."

    Festival starts!  Roll the drums!  

    I hope, the lines for iPhones start very early (months before?) with huge number of people and embarrasses Samsung more!

    So much better than 2012's 'Where Great Ideas Go On To Do Great Things'. Ugh...

    What other company can get numerous articles on all the tech sites over the posters they use to decorate with, and if they have any hidden meaning?

    Though as I walk up to my home controlling certain aspects, lighting and the door locks for example, would be a convenience especially when I'm carrying a bunch of stuff.

     

    Plus the larger screen would provide a better user interface for actual device controls (for ex. I prefer running my set top box off my iPad even versus my iPhone...)

    I think the graphic is signaling one of two things:
    1. Resolution independence (note the variable sized pixels)
    2. IOS will be sensing the world beyond your device (the space outside the apple is now rainbow colored)
    You read it here first.

    I withdraw my pressure sensitive touch screen theory that I made in the previous thread.

     

    Now that I see the full graphic, that's obviously an Apple, and not a finger as I was led to believe in the cropped image.

    Who the hell walks around 'controlling' their house? The idea of house control seems utterly lame to me. I like of some kind of intelligence but air con, heating, alarms, doors, and most of all lights and appliances really do not need much 'controlling' as far as I can see. The management of digital media is a different story.

    Big change from WWDC 96. It was more like, "Thanks for coming, Here's Steve Jobs, who will be special advisor to CEO Gil Amelio to tell you how Apple is gonna take on Windows with NeXTStep, the foundation of Rhapsody, the next version of Mac OS."

    Well If Apple is calling it 10.10 they need to go back to school. If these tech journalists are the ones calling it 10.10, 10.1, 10.100000, it doesn't matter how many zeros are behind it, is still 10.1 Puma

    Get Bo Derek to deliver the keynote... (the kids won't 'get' that one).

    They probably retained many of the same writers.

    The banner is done in grids and different colors clearly indicating its an app store for the Apple TV- you'd be blind not to see it

    Apple TV icons are rectangular, those are square
