Steve Jobs interview on CNBC

Found Footage: Steve Jobs interview on CNBC

After all the excitement and iPhone-ness of yesterday’s Keynote, Steve sat down with Jim Goldman of CNBC to talk iPhone. Goldman asked Steve about the conspicious lack of an iPhone intro date for both Russia and China, which are pretty big markets. Steve says that we should look for some announcements later this year on those fronts.

Goldman also asked why Wall Street has such a love/hate relationship with Apple. Steve responding by noting that Apple has had record quarter after record quarter, and Wall Street usually comes out at the right place.

TUAW WWDC 2008 Day 1 coverage roundupThat was a heck of a way to start off WWDC 2008, don’t you think? Just in case you didn’t get a change to read all of our 40 or so posts today, I thought I would highlight a few.

iPhone 2.0 firmware will ship in early July, touch users pay $9.95
: iPhone users get the 2.0 firmware for free, while iPod touch folks have to pay Apple ten bucks.

iPhone 3G announced: Did you know Apple makes a phone? The new iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 3G, sports faster networking, longer battery life, GPS, and a flush headphone jack. All of that, and it costs much less ($199 for an 8 gig and $299 for the 16 gig model).

MobileMe announced: .Mac is dead, long live MobileMe. Well, at least that will be the case on July 11. The .Mac replacement offers up push email, calendaring, contacts as well as Web 2.0 apps for checking said things. It still costs $99 for an individual account and $149 for a family subscription (all subscriptions last for a year).

WWDC 08 Keynote Live Coverage breakdown

Live Coverage of the WWDC 08 Keynote

A great list from Mactropolis.

The day is here, and all the rumors of late are going to come to an end when Mr. Jobs takes the stage. Should be a very interesting day to see what is announced. If you’re looking for some ‘live’ coverage then there are a few places you can check out. Most of these live blogs will begin sometime around 10AM PST.

All of the links below are live-blogging from the convention floor. Check ‘em out and let me know which one was best. Kind of lame, I’d rather have live video, but it seems these days the best you can do at these events is to live-blog… I digress… here are the links:

I followed MacRumors at MacWorld, and they did a great job of live-blogging. I’d recommend them again, but it’s your call

Again, after the keynote is all over, be sure to be on the looking for the video podcast of the keynote available via iTunes sometime early this afternoon.

WWDC 08 Keynote: Bang or Bust?

WWDC 08 Keynote: Bang or Bust?

67CE4F91-663E-41A2-B82A-DC9073D58BAC.jpgWe’re almost there. The WWDC is due to kick off on Monday with Steve Jobs’ keynote address… and we can finally put all of the rumors and speculating to bed. What do you think 100% for sure absolutely positive YES is going to be announced at the keynote? (I realize that last sentence didn’t make much sense).

There are three things that I’m keeping my fingers crossed about… Am sincerely hoping they all get announced at the keynote…The chances are slim, but heck, wouldn’t it be nice?

Obviously first and foremost will be the 3G iPhone announcement. That is almost a certainty. Will be great to see what the new iPhone has packed into it, what options it has, and more…

Next on my list would be the iPhone App Store. That has to be coming soon. Would make sense to launch this to coincide with the new iPhone.

Last on my list would be the launch of the iPhone internationally. Will there be announcements of the iPhone going green in Canada, Italy, Greece, and Australia to name a few? Rumors were that Apple was coordinating a massive international launch of the iPhone all around or on the same date. That would be great, and I can speak for other Canadians when I say ‘About GD Time!’

Of course, there have been so many more rumors including new iPhones coming in multiple colors, video conferencing via iChat on the iPhone, a slimmer and lighter iPhone, and a whole lot more… I’m sure you’ve read or heard all of the rumors by now.

So much to speculate on, I’m just happy this will be coming to an end next week. I’m hoping that the keynote delivers more than we are expecting… But we’ll have to wait and see.

What do you think? What is the WWDC Keynote going to deliver? …and will it be a bang or a bust!?

Thanks MacBlogz!

Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference is an annual event showcasing everything Apple and Development related. Every year, thousands of top industry professionals and Apple enthusiasts get together in San Francisco, CA at the Moscone West. 2008 is the first year where this event has sold out, largely in part to the brand new “iPhone Development Track” Apple is focusing on this year.

Although we wish we could attend WWDC this year, we simply weren’t able to make it happen. (”sigh”) But, that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to follow it from our favorite neighboring sites !!! Below is a list of our 3 favorite sites offering live WWDC coverage and links to their live updates page.

The Banners were hung at the Moscone West with care, In hopes that St. Steve soon would be there…

WWDC – OS X Banners Hanging at Moscone West.


Apple has already hung banners for “OS X iPhone” and “OS X Leopard” at the Moscone West in getting ready for the annual Worldwide Developer Conference.

This is the first time attendance at WWDC has sold out, largely in part because of the popularity of the iPhone development platform and the SDK release earlier this year.


The Leopard banner reads: “The world’s most advanced Operating System” and the iPhone banner reads: “The world’s most advanced mobile platform.”
