An exciting week in tech featured the D11 conference, a new Apple product, and more news ahead of WWDC.
Tim Cook Speaks
When Apple CEO Tim Cook speaks, an entire industry listens — especially when his comments come just days before the start of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). So was the case when Cook took part in this week’s AllThingsD’s D11 conference in Ranchos Palos Verdes, Calif.
First, it showed Cupertino’s newfound willingness to strip features from an existing iOS product to bring down its price. Second, it proved that Apple could still surprise us by releasing something that no one saw coming.
Not everyone, however, thought the iPod touch 16GB was a big deal. In fact, many of our readers found Apple’s move ho-hum, at best.
actually they just corrected a mistake.. by eliminating the 16 gig on the new version they lost a lot of potential consumers.. our family for one…
Now we will consider getting both our grandchildren one..sorry but we are not as rich as most Apple users.
The WWDC keynote probably won’t feature new iOS devices. However, we do expect it to include a few Mac upgrades. Among these should be a refresh to Apple’s Mac Pro lineup.
On Friday, May 31, MacTrast’s J. Glenn Künzler took a look at Mac Pro retail supplies across the U.S. What he found was that the entry-level Mac Pro was in short supply. In fact, the “vast majority” were either out of stock or had very limited quantities available.
We’ll be checking inventory levels on other Apple products between now and the WWDC keynote, which begins on Monday, June 10 at 10 a.m. PDT.
