Apple announces WWDC 2012, kicks off on June 11th
Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off on June 11th in San Francisco this year, and tickets are already on sale. WWDC 2012 is focused on Apple developers and will be held from June 11th to June 15th.

The developer’s conference will focus on iOS and OS X, and if we judge by last year’s agenda, there will be no hardware announcements, but we’re yet to see what Apple decides.

The price of a ticket to enter WWDC as a developer stands at $1,599, and you’d still need to pay for flights and accommodations separately, but judging by previous years interest, we wouldn’t be surprised if the tickets sell out in mere hours. Apple hiked the ticket price in 2010 after witnessing tremendous interest and sold out very quickly. Ticket sales are limited to one per person and five per organization.

WWDC 2012 will include more than 100 technical sessions by Apple engineers, and Apple will also throw hands-on labs, and some interesting keynotes for devs. One of the best things about the conference is that it brings together iOS and OS X programmers from around the world, so it should also be pretty fun. Hit the source link below to get your tickets while they're still available.

From the looks of the logo (which features LOTS of icons in LOTS of colours), anyone else besides me thinks that they're going to introduce 'live icons'? Real-time updates for your apps without having to tap into the app itself! So damn ground-breaking-ly new!

I hope you're cynical. Life icons? You know which platform has them already ever since 2010? I'll give you a hint. It stards with W, has Phone and the number 7 in it.

I laughed so loud at your post. Maybe I should've put '/s', I thought that the sarcasm was implied. And it's called 'Live tiles' (not 'life'). Also, it's 'starts' not 'stards'.

Apple has been known to snatch up on non-patented features from other smartphone OS's.

In some cases they do actually improve them. Take Siri for example. Android OS users have been using voice search for a while now yet Apple managed to integrate it into a functional assistant.

I look to all companies for innovation, not just one.

if the ipad played flash content i would say it would be the clear leader...

but it depends on what you need a tablet for:

techy user - android

heavy user multimedia/games - apple

Why ask random readers what's the best tablet, when they will only speak on what's best for them. Jus go to bestbuy dude, and play with several, then make ur own choice.

This year tickets for the Google I/O event were priced at $900 (some $300 tickets for students/faculty) and sold out in about 20 minutes. They'll probably hike up the price next year again.

If you got the cash and a fast trigger finger then sure go ahead and register but honestly I feel more at ease knowing I saved a wad a dough just by following a site with a "live blogging" event.
