Trying to work out where I was earlier, as I cleared my web history...Indeed it is. Question is why would you casually go through your image cache?
... but the filename has "springboard" in it...That's a standard promotional image for WWDC 2013. Nothing fancy.
I've not seen it elsewhere, have you?That's a standard promotional image for WWDC 2013. Nothing fancy.
Okay . Just seems a slight coincidence, since iOS uses a "springboard" launcher, right?Springboard is a lot a different things besides the name of iOS' main app. In web design lingo, it is commonly used as a placeholder or starting place image.
Seems like much of a coincidence to me; I like!Apple's internal web marketing team likely calls it a "stacks" image, because it looks like a stack of squares. The web team also likely has the "springboard" in the image name because it is the springboard/starting image for WWDC 2013.
I just compared this to the actual WWDC logo, and there are a few differences, so this is an all new image. Good find!I just found this in my Chrome image cache... but what IS it?
The source URL was some scrambled Apple URL which is now 404'ing...
