Apple’s new fruits

Technology Comments (0)

The long awaited Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) Apple hosts every year started on Monday with a big announcement. (Recurring annual theme?)

New iPhones will go on sale between June 17 and June 19. The new iPhones will be faster, have more and overall better features with the 3.0 software package and will also be capable of sending media or picture messages (finally). The old iPhones will remain at $99, while the new 16-gigabyte iPhone 3GS will be $199, and the 32-gigabyte, $299. Of course, these prices come with a two-year AT&T contract.

Another big announcement was that the newest version of the Apple OS X Snow Leopard will be available at $29 for individual copies and $49 for a 5 license copy. This is a pretty substantial price cut from what the old upgrade copies cost last year, and may be a sign that Apple is finally lowering its prices from the stratosphere to something we peons can afford.

In other big news, Steve Jobs was a no-show, creating more speculation of his deteriorating health. Jobs has been hailed a visionary to what was a major catalyst for the constant improvement in the world of technology, with many of his ideas coming way before their time, and some of them at the perfect time (i.e. the iPod).

It would be a shame for all the technophiles to lose the most prolific creator of the shiny things we love.
