Slides from Today’s Apple Worldwide Developer Conference

Check out Steve’s slides: big font, lots of pictures, very few words, and the bullets build. For a good contrast, read Garr Reynolds’ analysis of Steve vs Bill.

    But it’s 60 slides! I guess Steve can go beyond the 10/20/30 rule because he has already sold us. I was not able to attend this event, so I am grateful that you are sharing this.
    It’s sixty slides in my photos, not necessarily that Steve used 60 slides. Actually, he probably did–I didn’t catch them all because I was reporting live at Truemors. But his slides are so clean that he can use as many as he wants–not to mention he’s tech’s greatest speaker.

    Hey, thanks for sharing the slides. Most the announcements were already known.
    Why is it that OS’s (vista, leopard, ubuntu) are all pushing new visual effects, they should be showcasing new things that will help end-users, not awe them. But of course, visual feedback lets us see things in a more comprehensible way and are very pretty… anyways…
    Any comments on WWDC ’07, Guy?

    “Any comments on WWDC ’07, Guy?”
    AAPL speaks for itself… drop -$4.30 right after WWDC!
    The most disappointing thing was the “SDK” for iPhone. Or as some have been calling it, AJAX =)
    It is just not possible to build fully integrated mobile apps simply off the web and offering Safari as a SDK is (as some are calling it) just a “cop-out”

    Garr’s analysis hits it square. Simplicity trumps gizmo every time!

    I was so happy to see this up here, as I really wanted to attend this event! I am a regular blog reader, rare commentor, but I also wanted to say what a great role model you are to younger people such as myself. Keep up the great work!

    About the “Steve vs. Bill” thing. Garr Reynolds’is right.
    John Maeda talked about the laws of simplicity at “Ars electronica 2006 – Simplicity – The art of complexity”. Steve`s a good “student”. He`s great! Bill`s, noot!

    iPhone @ WWDC – Why are they not loving it?

    I dont get why the world is not in love with the iPhone even more. Yeah I know, thats almost impossible. But what is this outrage over no SDK? It takes Web Apps and AJAX apps. Waitaminnit –
    We can write our own apps on our favorite phon…
