Yes, I did again get an invitation from Apple to attend the WWDC, but I couldn’t attend this year due to my travels in Turkestan (Central Asia). Still, I did follow the announcements for sure and I am quite annoyed by the (so far) announced feature set of upcoming Leopard. I am however happy to note there will at last be garbage collection added to the Objective-C language and at least some of the long-outstanding, most-often used refactoring tools will be added to the XCode IDE. I am eager to test this out – I don’t know yet how I’ll manage to get a copy of the 10.5 WWDC build in my hands here (Does anyone know if the developer seed is sent out to ADC Student Members?).

Does anyone know why the russian cellular services provider has a bizarre egg in its logo? Nobody has a good explanation here besides that russians do like to eat eggs 😉

Roman just released EarthView 0.2.1:

EarthView shows you where on earth it is currently day and where it is night. And it does so in graphically pleasing way by drawing even the night side.

While its utility may be questioned, it surely is nice to look at and you can even spin the globe around with command-drag 🙂
