    As expected, this year's Worldwide Developers Conference will kick off with a keynote presentation, scheduled to be held at 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Monday, June 11.


    The date and time of the keynote was revealed in the official schedule for WWDC 2012 released on Tuesday. Developers can now visit the official site and sign in with their Apple ID to access the conference schedule and view session-related resources.

    The developer-centric conference will feature a number of sessions to assist in creating applications for iOS and OS X, and as with previous years, the conference will begin with a keynote presentation. It is expected that Apple will use this keynote unveil iOS 6, the next major upgrade to its mobile operating system for the iPhone and iPad.

    Aside from the time and date, details on the WWDC 2012 keynote are unknown. Apple's schedule does not provide any information on who might be speaking, but it is expected that Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook will lead off the keynote presentation.

    Not all sessions for this year's conference have been announced, which is a standard practice for Apple. The names of certain developer sessions likely will not be released until after the keynote, in order to not reveal any secret features of iOS 6.

    Also on the WWDC 2012 schedule are the annual Apple Design Awards, which the company originally announced in late April. The Apple Design Awards will take place Monday, June 11, after the keynote presentation, at 3:45 p.m. Pacific.

    Apple CEO Tim Cook participated in a lengthy stage discussion with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher for this years AllThingsD D10 conference. The highlight clip embedded below is about 17 minutes long and touches on a wide range of issues, including the state of Apple, thoughts on iPad and the tablet market, convergence, lessons of Steve Jobs, Apple’s culture, Apple’s overseas manufacturers and their factories, patent wars in the technology realm, Apple TV, upcoming Siri features, Facebook, what Tim Cook does on a daily basis, and of course things he can’t talk about (in other words, future products.

    It’s a good collection of highlights and the video is well worth watching for any Apple fans. Grab a seat, wait out the annoying 30 second introduction advertisement, and enjoy. We’ll post the full video when it becomes available too.

    An Explanation of the News From Apple

    "Well, Steve Jobs may be gone. But to the extent that Apple can keep alive the format and excitement of his onstage new-feature presentations, Apple is doing it.

    On Monday morning in San Francisco, I watched the new Apple C.E.O., Tim Cook, give brief remarks at the beginning and the end of the keynote presentation at the Worldwide Developers Conference, which will apparently become what the old Macworld Expo used to be: a place for Apple to take the wraps off its latest inventions. He handed off the actual announcements to his lieutenants."

    Apple kicks Google Maps off iPhone, adds Facebook - WBOC-TV 16, Delmarvas News Leader, FOX 21 - (click for full article)


    By MICHAEL LIEDTKE and PETER SVENSSON
    AP Technology Writers

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - "Apple is kicking an important Google application off its iPhone and buddying up with Facebook rather than Google's social network, as it distances itself from a bitter rival in the phone arena.


    Google's Maps application has resided on the iPhone since Apple launched the very first version of the phone in 2007. It's one of the core apps on the phone, and can't be deleted by the user.


    But on Monday, Apple executives said Google Maps will be replaced by an Apple-developed app in iOS 6, the new operating system for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. It's set to be released late this year.


    Apple and Google are locked in a fight over the attention of hundreds of millions of phone users, and the advertising opportunities that come with owning a mapping application.


    Smartphones from companies like Samsung and Google's own Motorola division are the chief alternatives to the iPhone, and Apple has been suing those manufacturers in court, accusing them of ripping off the iPhone's ground-breaking features.


    Apple also said it's building Facebook into iOS 6, snubbing the Google Plus social network. Users will be able to update their Facebook status by talking to their phones, and "like" movies and apps in Apple's iTunes store, Apple executive Scott Forstall said.


    The announcements were part of the keynote presentation that kicked off Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco."

    I've been reading about iOS 6, it seems promising and the Retina Display on MacBook Pro, it is sad that the 17" has become redundant. Come on, a 17" Retina Display would have been great for artists and graphic professional.
