Apple's WWDC sells out in two minutes to set a new record
Apple sold out its 2013 World Wide Developer Conference in only two minutes on Thursday, setting a new record. Last year's show sold out in a bit under two hours. The difference could easily have been in the announcement Apple made on Wednesday, that it would start selling tickets for the conference Thursday at 1pm. It was the first time that Apple ever gave a heads-up as to when the tickets to WWDC would go on sale. In just 120 seconds, the tickets were all gone.

Developers who missed out on getting tickets do have an opportunity to view the video of each session as they occur, not weeks later as in the past. And this year, we are looking forward to seeing iOS 7 unveiled at the event. Unlike previous iOS updates, iOS 7 is expected to bring a newly revamped UI to the platform.

During the earnings conference call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said, "We've got some really great stuff coming in the fall and across 2014." WWDC 2013 will take place in San Francisco from June 10th through June 14th at Moscone West.

Has Woz got them stirred? hehe.. Apple might still disappoint again though. I mean there were no surprises with the iPhone 5. What are they bringing in this time? A fancy radio app?

Thats interesting because its unlikely a new iphone comes out. I wonder how quickly the iphone event will sell out. Over/under is set at 2 seconds!

Too many haters posting non-beneficial comments because they dont have any life, or a hole to screw i assume; even though i dont like Apple products, i dont see a point of bashing them in every single related post. Same thing applies to other OS like windows phone.
Im eagerly waiting to see how the revamped OS will look like, though im not having high expectations.

Apple really needs to consider rethinking their WWDC venue. Many developers actually interested in the entirety of the WWDC who could use the workshops with Apple engineers missed out on getting tickets to the many just interested in the keynote alone.
My suggestion. Split it up. Sell tickets to just the keynote separately and hold it somewhere that can accommodate a larger audience.

Oh wait... are we trolling this article? I didn't get the memo. Um... uh, gee... Yeah, I guess people really wanna see something "new" from Apple this year.

(Sorry. Sorry... I didn't come prepared.)
