Three major products, hundreds of new features, thousands of new programmer interfaces
"We're going to talk about three things today," Steve Jobs said at the beginning his keynote speech Monday. Then he and his colleagues proceeded to talk about hundreds of things -- so many that days later the reporters who watched the two-hour presentation and the developers who attended the week-long conference that followed were still trying to wrap their MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 10, 2011 5:30 AM ET
Steve Jobs' master plan to draw a generation raised on stolen music into the iTunes store
Of the 5,364 items in my iTunes music library, 143 are songs I purchased on Apple's (AAPL) iTunes store. The vast majority were ripped from my old CD collection. A few were obtained by other means.
My children have even larger digital music collections that they store on iTunes and play on their Apple devices. I MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 7, 2011 7:16 AM ET

* Yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), Apple covered a number of new product announcements: details on OSX Lion's new features, July release and $29 price tag, a look at some of the 200 new features in iOS5 including an updated notification system, and finally, iCloud, an MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Jun 7, 2011 6:52 AM ET
Apple's pre-announcements -- of Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud -- have only made things worse
I've never see the Apple (AAPL) cognoscenti quite so confused. They're all in town for the Worldwide Developers Conference that opens Monday at San Francisco's Moscone West -- the first one since 2007 that doesn't feature a new iPhone. And without that shiny piece of hardware to anchor their thoughts, they seem to MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 6, 2011 3:29 AM ET
A veteran designer predicts that iCloud will be to MobileMe what the iPhone was to Apple's Newton
Kevin Fox spent three years in the 1990s writing software for the Newton, Apple's (AAPL) first, fumbling attempt to do what the iPhone finally achieved. He went on to design Yahoo's (YHOO) Chat and Messenger services and spent five years at Google (GOOG) where as the head of its user experience and research group MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 4, 2011 6:33 AM ET
They are the reason Apple's shares leaped out of the box at the opening bell Tuesday.
The key words in the press release Apple (AAPL) issued Tuesday morning were not OS X Lion, iOS 5, or iCloud -- the three components of what the company is billing as the "next generation software."
As important as the operating systems and services to be unveiled next week at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference may MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 31, 2011 10:49 AM ET
Piper Jaffray offers 3 reasons investors are nervous and 3 reasons they shouldn't be

The stock is already MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 25, 2011 7:39 AM ET
Reports that Apple had announced he will be speaking at WWDC turn out to be a year out of date.
In what may be a record for the number of crossed-out words in a single item, GigaOM's Charles Jade has retracted nearly everything he posted Tuesday morning, admitting shamefacedly that he "mistakenly referenced a [year] old press release."
His original post, quoting an official Apple (AAPL) announcement "highlighting Steve Jobs as keynote MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 24, 2011 12:42 PM ET
An Apple leak, hedge fund FUD or a false rumor out of the wild west of the blogosphere?
Several Wall Street analysts finally caught on to the significance of Jim Dalrymple's report in The Loop Monday that there would be no new hardware unveiled at Apple's (AAPL) Worldwide Developers Conference in June.
What this may mean -- as BMO Capital's Keith Bachman and Jefferies & Co.'s Peter Misek explained to clients Wednesday MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 30, 2011 11:58 AM ET
Ten hours after registration opened for WWDC 2011, all 5,000 seats were taken
Media from around the world descend on Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco every June for a chance to see a Steve Jobs keynote and to find out what shiny new objects he has up his sleeve.
