MacWorld 2008 Spoiler Leaked Keynote

Picture of IrvinLike it was said on technovia, if the leak is real, it will probably be deleted. So it looks like there is going to be a 16 GB iPhone, no mention of 3G. There was mention of a new MacBook Pro ultraportable, great, but what I really wanted to see was information about the new SDK. What was there, if true, is good and bad.

First I want to point out that I think Apple is giving the indie community what they have been asking for. There will probably be many, many more widgets than Apps. The revenue and pricing model covers Apple's cost for distribution and validation of the source code. That is O.K., and will probably be O.K. for most developers. The current interface between widgets and Cocoa is a JavaScript Cocoa bridge, with Apple allowing use of the frameworks that are acceptable to them. If this is in place, it will, for all intents and purposes, make this the primary method of developing applications for the iPhone. The problem is that if larger 3rd party developers will be forced into a subscription model for their applications, especially if Apple does cap the max cost at $6.99.

At any rate, it was a cool read, if you want to read it too, here it is, but don't expect for it to be around long:
