When you’ve got 5,200 developers attending your latest conference and you announce the availability of beta software for them to download and start playing with immediately, how do you manage the Wi-Fi network so there won’t be issues? Somehow, Apple has managed it with this year’s WWDC.
Let’s see, where’s that WWDC 2011 checklist? Oh, here it is. Apple issues press release confirming Steve Jobs keynote. Check! Secret “iCloud” plans outed. Check! And, Apple logos start going up at Moscone West. Check!
The invitations have been sent, the banners are flying at Yerba Buena and all that remains now is to see what Apple has on deck for us come Wednesday, March 2 at a special media event that will is expected to reveal the first sequel to the company’s market-leading iPad.
Although Apple has yet to send invitations, a new report claims that the iPad 2 will be officially announced at a media event held in San Francisco on Wednesday, March 2, just a bit more than a week away.
With the annual Macworld Expo upon us, iPhone-wielding fans of all things Apple will descend upon our beloved San Francisco. For those of you who’ll be joining us, we’ve put assembled a short list of must-have apps. Load these on your ’Phone or ’Pad and you’ll confidently navigate the City’s many splendors. Might want to load these before you arrive, though. AT&T’s 3G coverage here is less than ideal, and with the VeriPhone still weeks away, you could find your evening slipping away while your downloads trickle in. Oh and one bit of advice: don’t ever ever use the term “Frisco.”
Can you feel the excitement in the air? Apple has a media event coming on Wednesday, September 1 and if you happen to live anywhere near the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco where it’s all going down, you might have seen a preview of what’s to come.
This morning, we hung out with some fabulous Apple fans at the downtown
Apple Store in downtown San Francisco. The two lines of Apple faithful
extended around the block, and almost every eager patron had their hands
filled with free Krispy Kreme donuts and Starbucks coffee. We went down
the line to ask a few of the loyal patrons about the first thing
they'll do with their iPad. Some were incredibly eager to take home the
package and rip it apart, while others were more impressed with how it
will function as a developer tool. Take a look at the video for
all the highlights--there's even a special appearance from iJustine.
Welcome to San Francisco Macworld Expo attendees! Now that you've got
your bag filled with nerd-related goodies, you should take a break from
the expo floor and check out the glorious city of San Francisco.
