    For discussion of the Apple Developer Conference (WWDC). Not sure what the WW stands for, but, let's discuss.

    I started this out because I wanted to ask if anyone heard if new iPods were announced? I've been waiting for a Nano with more memory, but it seems like no announcement came, yet again.

    Didn't the 2G nanos just come out a few months ago? They released the 8GB nano.

    I wonder why so many people expected things like iPod and iMac announcements at a developer's conference? It's not a consumer equipment show, it's a show for software developers.

    The G5, iSight camera and MacPro were all unveiled at previous WWDC keynotes.

    True enough. It's just I expected the 16GB iPod to be introduced at the last consumer show, but it was ignored in favor of the phone. I thought there was a chance they'd use the DevCon to give a quick update on the rest of their product line.

    Apple seems to be releasing most hardware updates these days separate from MacWorld or WWDC. MacBook(&Pro) updates came out, announcement free, over the last few weeks.

    Unless there is some radical change (or brand new product), they won't bother with a special event.

    The G5 and the MacPro are both things that could be useful to pros -- new iPods and new consumer computers, not so much.

    So you think developers only code on Pro towers? I think I know two...all of the rest use iMacs.

    Every single developer I know codes on a MacBookPro. Yes, some also have MacPros, but all have MacBookPros.

    MacPros these days are mainly the province of video professionals and others who require major horse power, or wish to hook up a large number of 30" Apple Cinema Displays (see Gore, Al). For just writing code, any Mac will do fine these days, from a Mini on up.

    Alrighty, you win -- there was good reason to believe they'd announce new iPods at WWDC because developers use iMacs.
