    Following the news that Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference will take place Jun 11-15th this year, Apple has sent out WWDC "Save the Date" invitations to developers with a Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard theme:


    The invitation reflects a Time Machine theme - a feature to be introduced in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

    Apple provided a Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard preview at last year's WWDC and has promised a Spring 2007 release.

    Will there be a keynote?

    What would Jobs talk about if there were a keynote and Leopard was already shipped?

    I hope the new time machine looks like that. That's a nice clean-up of the beta.

    I really, really hope Leopard is stellar.

    Tiger was a tad bit lack luster. Apple has had a ton of time to code and test. I hope we see incredible features across the board.

    Unparalleled, eh?

    Maybe this indicates an Apple-developed replacement for Parallels...

    The dates aren't highlighted in blue, they're highlighted in SHINY BLACK!!!!!!!!!!

    Teh MAC's new user interface is HERE!!!111

    PS: Yeah Time Machine looks much better, could be a rendering, but it wouldn't suprise me if they cleaned it up to look prettier with their few months.

    I hope Leopard is stellar too, but Tiger is amazing. Spotlight, widgets! both huge additions.

    Second week of June is technically still Spring, isn't it... Argh.

    Is it just me or are we looking at a really boring first six months of '07?

    Too bad that invite isn't interactive or we could look back at earlier version of the calendar and see how their plans changed.

    There will be a keynote. It's basically a given at these events.

    Save the date?

    Save the cheerleader. Save the world. :)

    These Apple marketers must be fans of Heroes. So it begs the question why they chose to go with the Time Machine theme.

    Can't Wait!

    So many possibilities as to what will be released during the conference!
    Now this event sounds like it could be, "BigandTasty" ;)

    Correct, so WWDC 2007 actually takes place in spring.

    As for the UI depicted in that invite: I'm hoping we find it unified throughout the entire system.

    I'm assuming that the grey part of the calendar is what the windows will look like.

    How is it any different? The only difference I can see is that the arrows and timeline aren't showing.

    Uh, what does WWDC have to do with the release of Leopard? They're two separate things. Tiger was released in "spring" 2005 (late April), and WWDC'05 was also in "spring" 2005 (early June). The presumption has long been that, like two years ago, the new operating system would be available long before WWDC. There is nothing to contradict that as yet.

    Why? Just curious, because I see this sentiment a lot, and it makes no sense to me. I find a handful of different, but complimentary UI styles on the same system to be a boon to productivity. Apps that do different things should look different. I would hate to go into Exposé and have to take more than a split second to distinguish one app from the other.

    This is bullcrap. I'm not waiting until friggin June for Leopard. Not happening.

    My friend that works for Apple has a friend that works in software down on the Loop and from what he's telling me, Leopard is not far off. He doesn't go into specifics, but it's definitely looking like some time before April. As for an early iPhone release, who knows. I would like to see it in April too, but if that happened, what would they announce at WWDC? Maybe a new Mac design?

    Personally, I still have my heart set on a February event for Leopard, iLife, iWork and possibly a "One more thing..." wide-screen iPod.

    So timeline: February 20th is Leopard, iLife, iWork, and Video iPod. WWDC is iPhone, new Mac(s) and um... ponies. iPonies.

    Mark my words, this is what will happen (maybe not the iPonies though)

    I was looking again at the preview of leopard on apple's page. Did they use to have a video for every new feature? if they did, some of them , eg Ical, are not there anymore.

    I just hope I won't have to buy a new mac after leopard... I just have this (irrational?) feeling that apple's new tricks will stretch my imac...I would hate that.

    Summer doesn't begin until the Summer Solstice (longest day of the year) when the pole is at it's closest to the sun.

    This occurs in the northern hemisphere around the 3rd week of June and in the southern hemisphere where I am in the 3rd week of December.

    So while it's convenient for us to think of the seasons starting and ending with the months the actual seasons don't quite behave the way we think.

    Then as the pole starts to swing away from the sun the days get shorter until the orientation of the poles is at a tangent to our orbit - these are the vernal/autumnal equinoxes when the length of daylight and night is exactly the same. This occurs during the 3rd week of march for the northern spring/southern autumn and the 3rd week of september for the northern autumn/southern spring.

    So yeah, now you know.
