  • WWDC 2011 Banners, iCloud Icon Adorn Moscone Center


    Apple has begun dressing up San Francisco's Moscone Center West for the Monday kick-off of Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference. While there's nothing noteworthy about the banners in particular, we are getting our first look at the new iCloud logo, which certainly looks very Apple-esque.

    Based on the few images that have turned up so far from the facility, which is still being decorated at this hour, the iCloud logo bears a striking resemblance to the familiar MobileMe logo, particularly with regard to the old-school cloud shape that looks like something out of Super Mario World.

    Of course, we haven't seen all the decorations just yet, as the banners and imagery from the main room in which the presentation will be made are still being embargoed. And we may not see much more until Monday when the doors open and the press enters. But it's clear from the few images we've seen that Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud are the three pillars from this year's WWDC.

    Apple CEO Steve Jobs and company will kick off the 2011 Worldwide Developers Conference with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 am PST. At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software - Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.

      Nope. They never do. It'll appear on Apple.com a few hours after the event.

      iCloud replacing MobileMe and looks to be keeping the MobileMe icon.

      As far as I recall, going back before the first iPhone, I have never seen a live stream from Apple of any keynote from WWDC, their Sept Music events, or any event where they've unveiled a new product.It's always been an edited video of the keynote that appears on Apple.com a few hours later.

      Maybe the Verizon iPhone announcement? I didn't follow that. But no WWDC, MacWorld, Sept Event has been live streamed. Here's a list of recent events, if that helps jog your memory as to which one you remember as being live streamed Apple - Events


      I could be wrong, if anyone with a definite answer whats to chime in.

      Edit: Apple to Provide Live Video Streaming of September 1 Event
      I stand corrected.

      I'm with feidhlim1986, haven't been following apple's products for long, but in the last few years (two?) I have not seen a live stream from apple. Obviously some sites have their people in there who report whats going on, eventually even film it but nothing official from apple itself.

      I'm really really really excited to see this. I got my first iphone (iphone 4) about a month ago and I'm trilled, so it looks like I can't wait to get my hands on iphone 5/iphone 4S and iOS5, bring it on

      Possibly. They streamed their last couple of events, don't see why they'd stop suddenly.

      I wish Apple streamed for sessions live in HD, that would be awesome. I'm excited to see what iOS 5 and Lion are going to bring!
