Time to start the crazy speculation on what the two bridges stand for:

Judging by the text underneath, I believe the two bridges represent Mac OS X and iPhone. It doesn't seem to be a hidden reference to anything... or maybe I'm just obtuse.

That is clearly the sensible way to look at things, but since when has sensible stopped people from speculating?

I posted this in the Developers forum but I should probably include it here, too... I'm in the company of thousands of other businesses and individuals who received this form letter (complete with typo) from Apple this morning:

What a journey.
You know, my first thought when I saw that ad was "America COULD NOT build another Golden Gate bridge". That's back when we DID STUFF!

What a journey.

We can't build a Saturn V booster, or a Missouri class battleship anymore, either. We don't do heavy industry anymore. But WWDC looks nice.

Saturn Air ? Not ports for the astronauts to enter/exit.

What a journey.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
Iowa Class you mean? The USS Missouri was Iowa class. We don't need those ships anymore. We can build plenty ... the people with all the money and power just wanted to make more money and have more power and that's largely why manufacturing has declined. Of course a global transport economy helps.

You're right, Iowa class, sorry. Didn't say we needed one. Although I'd like to see an Exocet try to take one of those down.

Like the iPhone, WWDC is sold out. Unlike the iPhone, this is a Good Thing? as it's the first time they've ever filled WWDC before.

One week to go.

I'm trying to find an article that talks about Apple's release schedule for OSX. I seem to remember that they said they were going to go back to 18 month release intervals going forward. Anybody remember seeing that?

Yes, they were moving from yearly to every year-and-a-half as the OS matured.

By that schedule, the next release should come in late April of next year... more than a month BEFORE the next WWDC. So should we expect to hear anything about 10.6 next week?

No, I think they'll keep the lid on 10.6 for a while longer.

Via John Gruber, TUAW has a rumor about this:

TUAW has received some information that suggests Apple may be working to seed developers with an early build of Mac OS X 10.6 at this year's WWDC. 10.6 will not include any new significant features from 10.5; instead, Apple is focusing solely on "stability and security." We have also learned that OS X 10.6 may go gold master by December 2008 in an effort to start shipping it in January '09 at Macworld Expo. Mac OS X 10.6 will be a milestone release for Apple, as it will leave the PowerPC behind: a fully 64-bit clean, Intel-only Mac OS X.

This is sort of what I was thinking---not the announcement now, or the release date, or the dropping of PPC support---that the next version of OSX wouldn't introduce new features but would focus on cleaning up things and unifying the look and feel on different platforms. Interesting rumor, in any case.

Ok, fair enough. From a technical pov I can see what they're trying to archieve, but how do you sell this to your customers? Not via paid upgrades; that's for sure!

And the ones with 2 year core duo 32 bit processors? I have my doubts.

iChat for Windows... and iChat on the iPhone.

Pretty nifty I must say.

Uh, that looks really fake at first glance. Would be awesome if it were true.
