WWDC kicks off tomorrow in San Francisco. Unfortunately, MacMinute confirms that there will be no Satellite Broadcast and will not be broadcast to Apple Stores.

Photos of Apple's WWDC Tiger banners, however, were posted in one blog entry.

Meanwhile, the same source (GNAA) as the original Tiger screenshots provides the following additional details from Mac OS X 10.4:

1) Smart Folders in Finder - these virtual folders allow you save specific search criteria for files and present matching files. Similar to iTunes' Smart Playlists.

2) Mail.app - Smart folders, account specific signatures, and a connection doctor.

3) Search field in the top right of the Mac OS X menu bar which allows you to search files in Finder.

MacRumors will attempt to provide a feed if at all possible. If you will have access to the keynote and are willing to assist, please contact the webmaster.

Smart Folders!!!

Smart Folders! :D :eek: :D

This will be cool. Glad to know there is more to 10.4 than had previously been leaked. Now I am a little more confident this will be a worth while release.

Surely this must mean a new(er) FileSystem, something with proper META-Data? otherwise that kinda feature would bring the system to it's Knees! :confused:

I just hope Apple get the quicktime copy of the keynote up fast given the blackout they are having. Guess they want to mac attendance at WWDC more attractive so no live feeds...

Banners

Just in case anyone has not checked out the Banners yet, (at the link in the quote) they are really cool.

They read "Introducing Longhorn" , "Redmond, we have a problem" , "This should keep redmond busy" and (My personal favorite) "Redmond, start your photocopiers" .

I had not even thought of this. Perhaps this is the result of the supposed "Apple Metadata project" ? That would be really cool..

10.4 is looking better and better as the hours go by...

Also, I am surprised Apple has not squashed the leaker yet. You would have thought they would have by now..

What do you think this means? Maybe this is because there is not supposed to be another update for quite some time?

I am not sure what I think about this...I already have enough stuff in my Menu bar...

You'd think Jobs/Apple would get that publicity is a GOOD thing, I hate their moronic secretive sh*t, one days I wished they'd get an effen clue!

My first reaction to the banners is negative. Sure, they make ME laugh, and probably the same for a lot of developers at the conference, but I don't think the "us vs. them" attitude will help Apple sway non-Mac or minds as well as an "all that and better" attitude would. I'm no marketing expert, and in this case they are preaching to the flock, but still...

Can someone explain to me the concept of the Dashboard thing? I don't really understand how it would be useful, or how exactly it is brought up. Will it be like Expose where you can assign Dashboard to a screen corner, and when you move your mouse there, the screen dims and all those widgets come up? I really don't see how that is useful, for instance, the iTunes widget. Why not just click on iTunes and bring the program up to change the track? I don't see how the Dashboard way of doing it would be that much faster. And then there is that calendar widget. Is it really that time consuming to just click on iCal?

Maybe I'm not getting it. Can someone explain?
