Are you dying for a sneak peek at Leopard, the next incarnation
of OS X? If so, book a ticket for San Francisco in mid-August. Apple has announced, on its site and by email to
customers, that it will offer a preview of OS X Leopard at WWDC
2006, scheduled for August 7-11.
The Apple site briefly describes five WWDC session tracks --
Application Technologies, Development Tools, Graphics and Media, Information Technologies, and OS Foundations --
but doesn't provide details about specific sessions. If you're considering going, try to get your boss to pick up the
registration fee, which is a stiff $1295-$3500 before June 23 and even more after that date. If you're a student, don't
overlook Apple's Student Scholarship Program. We told you before -- but it's worth a
reminder -- that applications for a free WWDC ticket through that program are due on April 28.
