WWDC 2008 Analysis

The Presentation As usual I keep tabs on all the major Apple events using pretty much all the top tech sites that run “live blogs” and the like.

WWDC 2008 Predictions

And the a tradition continues. Here’s my predictions for WWDC 2008. Steve Jobs will announce the following: iPhone 3G Well duh.

I have a feeling they are dead serious on this one. Exchange support, and the administrative stuff will be very big wins. I also wouldn’t be […]
