WWDC Expectations (The Loop)
Jim Dalrymple lays out his predictions for June’s Worldwide Developers Conference, saying he expects no new iOS hardware and that anybody who says the keynote is a bust because of that is “stupid.”
The International Trade Commission is reconsidering a split ruling from March in which a judge said that Apple had infringed a text-selection patent of Samsung’s and that Samsung did not infringe an Apple patent on detecting whether a mic is plugged into a headphone jack. Worst high-noon showdown ever.
As announced by Tim Cook himself during his Tuesday appearance at the D11 conference, former EPA head Lisa Jackson is now coordinating environmental issues for Apple. In an email to Politco, Jackson said she is “thrilled” to join the team, and reportedly can’t wait to get started on painting all of Apple’s products green.
