Well, that’s that. So, did we see any revelations, any big stuff, in the Apple WWDC keynote today? I don’t think so, but let’s review:
- Leopard on target for an October release. Knew that.
- Leopard is cool and graphical and stuff. Knew that.
- iPhone is out June 29. Knew that.
- iPhone is out at at 6pm on June 29. Didn’t know that, so will stay off roads.
- Apple is letting developers do some more work building apps for iPhone. Knew that.
- Apple is releasing a version of its Safari browser for Windows. Didn’t know that, and I wish Steve would have poked a real stick in Bill’s eye instead last week at D, but I guess we’ll have to settle for the software version.
Matter of fact, about the only interesting part came at 11:22 of the Jobsnote:
11:22 am Head of Apple iPhone software had some trouble typing with the iPhone on-screen keyboard
The stock was briefly trading up, post-keynote, so apparently the absence of news isn’t troubling people. Maybe there was some concern that Jobs would fall into the orchestra pit. Whew, didn’t happen.
[Update] Valleywag has a good look at what was announced in the WWDC and its materiality.
