Moscone West is transformed into WWDC 2010.
WWDC 2010 is about to begin.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs kicks off WWDC 2010.
Jobs: "We’re in 10 countries today, we’re going to be in 19 by July…we’re making iPads as fast as we can."
Truly a multi-purpose device. "Magical"even.
Users have so far downloaded 5 million iBooks. That’s 2.5 per iPad.
Publishers tell Apple that iBooks’ share of total eBook sales is 20+ percent now and rising.
iBooks enhancements: ability to make notes, new control that shows bookmarks in the index of books themselves, the ability to review and read PDFs (applause).
Jobs welcomes Netflix CEO Reed Hastings to the stage.
Netflix CEO: their free app is coming to iPhone this summer. Movie playback in WiFi/3G.
Mark Pincus, CEO of Zynga, takes the stage to announce Farmville for the iPhone.
Farmville app is cross platform; the farm she’s working on her iPhone is the same as on Facebook. "Say goodbye to withering crops, we now have push notifications.”
"What's retina display? We’ve dramatically increased pixel density…we’re putting 4 times as many pixels in any given space. This will give us really, really sharp text when we zoom in."
300 pixels is the limit of the human retina. We’re using 326 pixels per inch; no one has ever done this before. Images and text begin looking extraordinary.
