Penny Arcade covers WWDC10
Penny Arcade’s take on Steve Jobs’ iPhone 4 demo failure at the WWDC 2010 keynote. Still not sure why Steve didn’t use a cable for the networking, given that the demo phones had cables to do the display anyway. I guess it distracted from his fireside chat on the edge of the stage.
Dividing the 20 or so available channels by the 570 base stations probably wasn’t going to work particularly well regardless of what hardware was in use, it was an ‘extreme networking event’. But a great time to test your app to see how it goes in times of network weirdness 🙂
God approves iPads
It seems the Vatican has approved the use of iPads to replace the Missal during Mass, with Rev. Paolo Padrini, a consultant with the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Social Communications launching his own (unofficial) iPad App in July. Would be interesting to see if it gets App store approval and what rating it gets…

I have no idea what the alien pastries available for breakfast were. Deep fried bread rolls? Fried Excorated donuts? Slices of cookie pizza?
As always the problem with WWDC is that it leaves your brain overfull, and your brain usually doesn’t empty by the time of the next day’s sessions. Also, you realise how cool the stuff is that everybody else is working on.
Micro SD cards are *really* small. I imagine they will put the ‘lost’ back in data loss.
WWDC10 playlist is being kept over at Mashable, could come in handy for answering Stump The Experts questions.
App store revenue
225,000 apps have paid out US$1 billion to developers. So that’s around US$4444.44 per app.
At a guess I’d be hoping that it doesn’t take more than two weeks to write an App, otherwise I suspect most developers are being underpaid, despite the ‘I quit my day job’ stories Apple is keen to promote.
