Did they keep it covered because someone dropped the only working Cube prototype at the door and it will take a while to redo it?

There are a stations around the banner with Apple Displays showing the new widget.Man, oh, man, if I were a developer at the WWDC, I'd be stabbing people with the cafeteria plastic butter-knives, frustrated to have paid such an insane sum of money for nothing.I'll say it because I know the devs are afraid to say it: "fuck you, Steve" Reply 8 of 14 feynman Posts: 1,087member June 12, 2007 11:04AM Quote:Originally Posted by kim kap sol I'll say it because I know the devs are afraid to say it: "fuck you, Steve"I dunno if you're being sarcastic but that's uncalled for. This is a developers conference, not MacWorld. Reply 9 of 14 g_warren Posts: 713member June 12, 2007 11:10AM That complaints about a crap WWDC are really funny. Sure, I'd have liked to see a shiny new iMac etc like everyone else, but to say that developers are pissed off is silly- I suspect that 99% of developers paid the fee to be there not so they could see some shiny new hardware (although it would have been a nice bonus), but so they can learn about new Leopard technologies and promote their products. In that respect, sounds like a good use for the $5000 fee or whatever it is.

They know what many (if not all) of the workshops are going to be centered around, and will go for those. It's not that they don't take the keynote into consideration when deciding whether they're going or not, but it's not like that's the main focus for them. It may be the main focus for us, as the consumer, but WWDC is NOT for the consumer, it's for the developers. I'm really sick of people complaining that it didn't have anything for the consumer, because they didn't need to.

They made a whole banner for a stupid widget? Did they cover it out of shame?Quote:Originally Posted by G_WarrenThat complaints about a crap WWDC are really funny.As Kim Kap Sol said, it's not about the hardware but the Keynote. The Keynote speech hardly covered anything about what we wanted to hear in leopard - anything new at least. We were promised secret features and as far as I can tell, they haven't delivered any unless the stupid widget was it of course in which case it's pretty lame.Quote:Originally Posted by Mr.JeffI'm really sick of people complaining that it didn't have anything for the consumer, because they didn't need to.But they did, that's the point - again I'm talking about the Keynote though. You're right the WWDC as a whole will offer devs the sessions but the keynote was clearly targeted at consumers with for example their segment on how ichat has changed the lives of families (1,2,3 aawwww). Developers don't care about that crap and neither do the majority of the people watching because the only reason we are watching is because we've been waiting and keeping up with the latest news and want more.The point I think most people are expressing is that Leopard looks like it will be a good system but Steve didn't cover enough of the features that are of importance to developers. Most critically, he didn't give an idea about what state Leopard was in (perhaps the WoW unexpectedly quitting said it all).

It was pretty crap from that point on! Reply 14 of 14 musltngblue Posts: 303member June 13, 2007 5:49PM *rim shot*But unfortunately seems to be true.I wonder if the announcements for apps for iPhone being written in Web 2.0 is just a temporary solution to gain back popularity from critical people of no 3rd party software, until they can compile a good SDK, perhaps to launch with an aim on the 2G.
