    The same thing they do every year when tickets go on sale? =)
    The difference is in the timing tho, I don't think Moscone West is sustainable without a riot with that fast of ticket sales... Where else could they do it tho?

    Since the videos are posted soon after it's not a big deal for me, but I'm not a full time developer....

    I believe Control Out could be as important to the future of TV than the actual UI for interacting with the set itself.
    http://www.bgr.com/2012/05/30/apple-itv-os-demo-wwdc/
    Interacting with multiple devices connected to a TV right now is absolutely miserable and it takes an Apple to fix it. As I noted here in the past I purchased the much vaunted Harmony One remote and felt that I had replaced 6 really crappy remotes with 1 crappy remote. It was an improvement but still a human factors nightmare. It was nothing that someone who WASNT ME and with intimate knowledge of how it works could pick up and instantly know how to use.
    I don't know if we will see it or anything TV related at WWDC, but I continue to remain hopeful.
    And I'm not counting bluray support dead on OSX until we see this mythical TV in the flesh =)

    Instead of the traditional sized pepperoni, they will have tiny pieces of pepperoni but there will be thousands of them on each pie. PPI (pepperoni per inch) will be at least 300!

    My iOS dev account just expired. Depending on when they release iOS 6 betas, I may sign up again.
    The beta of Mac OS 10.8 interests me, too. Now that Parallels supports Mac OS virtual machines, I may sign up for a Mac dev account.
