Apple to Show New iPhone 3.0, Mac OS X in June

Adding fuel to the new iPhone fire, Apple yesterday announced that the company would be holding an event for developers at the beginning of June.

This year's World Wide Developer’s Conference is set to take place June 8 to 12, and while there’s nothing in the invite about new hardware, the company last year announced the iPhone 3G at the WWDC. Set to take place at Moscone West in San Francisco, Apple promises users a look at the “powerful software behind the iPhone OS and Mac OS X,” which can really only mean one thing: iPhone 3.0 and Snow Leopard.

If you want to attend this year’s WWDC, you’re going to be paying a price. While Apple boasts those who book in the next month or so (before April 24) will save three hundred bucks, early bird tickets will still set you back $1295. Ouch.

We know there’s not a lot of Mac users around these parts (at least, not as many as there are iPhone users), but if you’re part of the Mac-minority, what kind of changes would you like to see implemented with Snow Leopard? Let us know in the comments.

    ive heard that parallel processing will be built into snow leopard, and since ive got a decent gpu that would be huge in terms of decoding, compression, etc. Assuming drivers come out ( which i doubt because osx clearly runs on proprietary hardware ) then i might throw it on my PC and see how well it runs. For now, im running XP and Linux Mint while waiting for windows 7.

    "We are pleased to announce that the platform lock on OSX is being removed and OSX is now completely open-source!"

    "And now we would also like to announce that this building will explode in 15 seconds! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!"

    I would love it if OS 10.6 would revamp some of the basic programs included. The picture viewer is crap. I would like to have a few new games. Better Window management (Expose is great... but it needs a few tweeks). Faster load times of thumbnails. Better cross platform performance on windows files. Who knows... Leopard is great right now... can't do too much to fix it.
