WWDC 2009

Jun 11 2009 Published by under Apple,English,iPhone

I believe you already noticed the twitter updates on the sidebar. Yes, I am attending WWDC 2009 this week. It is a great conference and I believe you’ve already got the news from it too.

Just a day before I came here, I’ve launched a website for this event:

Here’s how it works:

  1. I create a new twitter account @2009wwdc
  2. I use this account to follow all the people who attend this conference, not the one who just talk about this
  3. I’ll follow people who will tweet the important things, especially the kind of people who don’t care NDA that much. :D
  4. Server will automatic pick up who I follow and collect all their tweets and stats
  5. Tweets are searchable on the site
  6. Will archive the site couple of weeks after the conference ends

If you want to know more about WWDC 2009, it is the site you should go.

WWDC 2009, I am coming!

Apr 24 2009 Published by under Apple,English,iPhone,Mac,OS X

Just bought my ticket for WWDC 2009!

WWDC 2009 Count Down

Today is the last day for early bird price (Saving $300). I got it in Canada for CAD $1699. Really not cheap.

Funny story, I thought I can buy it cheaper in US store, but it turns out even worse. The final price will have tax be added onto original price USD $1295, which will be USD $1414 in total. And USD $1414 is about CAD $1728 as of today.

Look forward to it!

Microsoft Office Labs’ Future Vision Montage

Mar 01 2009 Published by under Apple,English

On Feb 27, 2009, Microsoft Business Division President Stephen Elop unveils Microsoft Corp.’s vision for the future of business technology.

There full version press release video is available here – Microsoft Business Division Virtual Presskit: Vision.

The best part of this press is the following video (2 minutes long), which presents Microsoft’s vision of Office 2019:

Here is the full version about the “Future Vision Montage”, 5 minutes long:

Here is the PowerPoint file for Stephen Elop’s Keynote.

For the comparison:

Apple’s “Future shock” Knowledge Navigator concept device from 1987:

For the vision montage it self, I am pretty enjoy watching it. And I could always feel that the application is too complicated to develop/use, too much information and too much distraction on the unrealistic giant screen.

I think 10 years is really way too short for Microsoft’s vision coming true. The computers we were using in 1999 are not that big different from what we have now, and how big is the different from Office 95 and Office 2008 again?

Anyway, we should never stop dreaming and hoping!
