• Why Apple's developer conferences sell out faster every year

    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.

  • Apple asks FCC to keep iPhone secrets

    Requests "confidentiality treatment" for iPhone 4 specs even as it spills the beans on iTunes

    Patently Apple has turned up a curious letter. It was sent on June 4, three days before Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone 4, to the Federal Communications Commission -- the government agency that must certify any wireless device before it can be marketed in the U.S.

    Signed by Apple's (AAPL) wireless compliance manager, it requests confidentiality for MORE

  • Adobe tries to upstage Steve Jobs

    Using an independent advertising platform to get Flash in the iPhone and iPad's back door

    Here's an odd twist.

    In a press statement scheduled for release two hours before Steve Jobs' WWDC keynote, Adobe (ADBE) has announced that it is teaming up with an independent mobile advertising network to bring advertisements written in Flash to a variety of mobile devices, including Apple's (AAPL) iPhone and iPad and Google's (GOOG) Android phones.

  • Steve Jobs' troops are in town

    5,000 Apple developers have descended on San Francisco to get this year's marching orders

    In sheer numbers -- and security measures -- Apple's WWDC 2010 can't compete with "Israel in the Gardens," the annual festival for Bay Area Jews that stationed metal-detecting guards at every entrance of San Francisco's lovely Yerba Buena Gardens Sunday and drew a crowd of nearly 20,000.

    But in the world of Apple (AAPL), the Worldwide Developers Conference MORE

    "You won't be disappointed," wrote Steve Jobs a few weeks ago in one of his cryptic -- and increasingly frequent -- e-mail pronouncements.

    This one was in response to a fan concerned that Apple's (AAPL) Worldwide Developers Conference, which Jobs will kick off with a keynote address, had been upstaged by Google's (GOOG) I/O conference a few MORE

  • AT&T and Android planning a WWDC spoiler?

    It will be hard to top the iPhone 4G, but recent rumors suggest that AT&T might reveal its first real Android phones on or around Apple's WWDC.

    AndroidGuys.com keep pulling in photos of an as of yet unmentioned HTC device called the 'Aria' that is expected to be launched on AT&T's network. They call it the 'smallest Android device they've seen yet'.

    The date of release?  Next week on June 7th.

  • What Steve Jobs has up his sleeve

    A leading Apple analyst offers his Worldwide Developers Conference checklist

    The developers conference that begins June 7 is likely to be "a non-event" for Apple's (AAPL) share price, according to Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, with few surprises.

    But in the note to clients he issued Wednesday he adds that the new iPhone he expects Steve Jobs to introduce will likely drive unit sales beyond Wall Street's targets -- "providing a positive MORE
