I don’t know what it is, but I love watching Escalator fails! This one looks like it’s in slow motion…but it isn’t. Just a really slow progression to epic escalator failure. Source – JJ.am Pin It
Apple has put out the word Wednesday Morning April 25th, that their Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) will be held June 11th – 15th 2012 in San Francisco’s Moscone West. The conference will focus heavily on iOS and OS X app development and give developers a five day workshop on development in relation to Apple products. In addition to the sessions offered will be a scholarship program where students creating apps can apply to attend WWDC at Apple’s expense.
The conference will also showcase the best apps over the last year for iOS and OS X in the Apple Design Awards. The winners last year received a MacBook Air, iPad 2, iPod touch and a trophy. Adding to the perks, publicity for their award winning apps helps the downloads as well. 2011 saw apps like Infinity Blade, Cut The Rope and Pulse News Reader among many others as winners.
If you were planning on attending, you may be saddened to hear that tickets are already sold out at $1600 per ticket. If you’re a student developer however, you can apply for the Apple scholarship program to try and get a seat. The rest of us will have to wait for the sessions videos to pop up online from the event. Maybe we’ll even see a little spot near the end about the sixth generation iPhone as well.

There’s no denying that Apple is on a serious roll when it comes to product launches over the past decade. With Apple (AAPL) trading well over $630 on the NYSE, and the 3rd generation new iPad out on the market for the last month, the next big launch will keep the ball rolling.
Many are questioning what the next iPhone will have in store when it launches later this year. There have been rumors that the next iPhone will sport a much larger screen (some say 4.6inches), but anyone that knows Apple or read the Steve Jobs biography for that matter, knows that Jobs was against a larger screen on the iphone. Steve Jobs was also still very involved with the overall planning of the iPhone 5 just prior to his untimely passing in 2011, so what the iPhone 5 will have in it will be nothing short of another amazing product.
An analyst for Topeka Capitol Markets reported on Monday what he believes Apple will be including with the next generation iPhone to investors. Brian White stated that Apple’s stock price could go over $1000 as well. Regarding the next iPhone, White said it is expected to have a 4inch touchscreen display and a “new, sleek look” pointing towards a unibody case. Apple is known for its ability to create unibody casings for many f its other products including the MacBook line, Man Mini, and Apple TV.
The timing of the launch is one of the many other reasons for rumors around the iPhone 5, and one Foxconn employee went on record stating that the 6th generation iPhone will launch in October 2012. The Foxconn executive stated;
We just got the order,[The release] will be around October.
Other details in specs for the new iPhone include 4G/LTE, 1GB RAM, and the latest Apple dual-core A5X processor.
