    And I don't know what I should do! I'm nervous about going, but it would be 4k wasted if I don't go!!! Will the things to learn there be too confusing?? Also, if I go, will I be allowed to post info about Leopard?

    I'll ask Steve if he could autograph my MBP and slowly lead him in a corner then I will ask him. If not possible, your plan will be tried.;)

    Yeah but if you DO take that away, we have no Apples (every time I say something like that it sounds weird).


    BTW, why'd he name the company "Apple"?

    They named it after newton's apple. It gave him inspiration and the original logo of apple was newton sitting under an apple tree. :cool:

    Maybe he was eating an Apple?

    I named a WordPress theme "Chapstick" because I was putting on chapstick when I was thinking of a name...

    I've heard that there were the 3 of them around a table trying to decide on a name and after a couple of hours, one of them got bored and, pointing to the fruitbowl, said he was going to name it Apple if none else came up with anything better.

    Well, what are you currently trying to develop? Going to seminars/groups on areas that cover those, you shouldn't be out of your depth since you'll already be aware of the technologies you're covering and will get the chance to pick brains and get other aspects explained to you that perhaps you're stuck on.

    So far as posting info goes, I'd always thought that by signing up to the ADC, you automatically signed an NDA so no, you shouldn't discuss the details of anything other than what was said in the Keynote.
