Peter Kelly is a professor in Adelaide, Australia and teaches classes on computer operating systems. After writing his Ph.D. thesis with Lyx and LaTex, he thought it would be interesting to develop similar software for Android. That didn't work out so well. UX Write for the iPad was the result. Dave Hamilton interviewed Dr. Kelly at WWDC this week and got the story.
Apple hit us with all kinds of big announcements during its World Wide Developer Conference keynote presentation this week with iOS 7, OS X 10.9 Mavericks, the new Mac Pro, and more. Jeff and Bryan have plenty to say about all of those announcements, and it turns out Jeff lost a bet so now he owes Bryan a dollar.
Looking at Apple's new iOS it seems they haven't even decided for themselves what things should look like. Too much more delay here is bad for third-party developers and, therefore, bad for us. See what Dave Hamilton found.
Jeff Gamet, The Mac Observer's Managing Editor, and Mac Geek agab co-host John F. Braun joined the Mac Roundtable crew to talk about Apple's World Wide Developer Conference, and the preview of OS X Mavericks and iOS 7.
At WWDC, Apple's Craig Federighi walked us down a new, invigorated path for OS X. Instead of a adding gadgets and questionable features to the OS, fundamental improvements have been made that will make us more productive. Crazy things we complained about have been fixed. It's a great feeling.
Apple's professional and advanced technical users have been, with a half broken heart, pining for Apple to introduce a flagship product, a new Mac Pro that would stun and stagger us. The company has not disappointed. Plus, it was oh, so smart to give us a sneak peek at WWDC, so that developers would see what would soon be in the hands of customers. The drool factor starts NOW.
Apple gave users their first glimpse into OS X 10.9 on Monday during a keynote event at the company's annual World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco. The next version of OS X does away with the cat naming scheme in favor of California locations -- starting with Mavericks. OS X 10.9 will also include Finder Tabs, system-wide file tagging, and enhanced multiple display support.
Apple's keynote at this year's World Wide Developer Conference is scheduled to start at 10Am pacific time, and The Mac Observer is on location as usual with our live event coverage. With the online Apple Store already down, we're expecting big announcements beyond iOS 7 and OS X 10.9. Be sure to check in for our as-it-happens coverage from the keynote, and throughout the week for even more news from the annual developer's event.
Apple's online store was replaced with the familiar "Back Soon" notice Monday morning ahead of the company's annual World Wide Developer Conference keynote event. Apple typically doesn't take its Web-based store offline ahead of media events unless new product announcements are coming, hinting that rumors of new Mac Pro and MacBook Air models might be accurate.
Apple will be streaming its World Wide Developer Conference Keynote event Monday morning via Apple TV. The Mac, iPhone and iPad maker quietly added a new channel to Apple TV this morning ahead of the presentation, and also added a link to watch through the Apple Events page on the company's website.
