’s annual Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC
) is slated for June 10th-14th in San Francisco, and according to V3.co.uk, tickets for the event sold out in mere minutes. Even compared to last years’ run on tickets, when WWDC sold out in about two hours, that’s blazing fast. It’s perhaps a more notable achievement because this years’ attendees have to already be a part of Apple’s developer program.
Apple is widely expected to unveil details and updates about its next mobile operating system, presumably dubbed “iOS 7
”, as well as the latest on Mac OS X
. There are no blockbuster announcements scheduled that we’re aware of.

A lot of people, this writer included, feel that Apple has at best lost its sizzle and at worst completely lost its way. The company’s current product lineup is overpriced without offering any substantial benefit over the competition, and there doesn’t appear to be anything on the horizon to change that.
Apparently, plenty of developers disagree, or at least disagree to the extent that they believe they can still make good money developing for Apple’s platforms.
