TUAW predicts WWDC '08: How did we do?

Cory Bohon

The dust has settled from the stampede of announcements from yesterday's WWDC Keynote so it's time to take a look back at our predictions and see how we did!

First, let's take a look at what was released at this year's WWDC:

Let's see what we predicted:
  • .Mac rebranding (with support for iPhone/PC)
  • iPhone 3G
  • Mac OS X 10.6 seeded
  • iTablet
  • Mac nano
  • Flash on the iPhone
  • Video on the iPhone
  • Enterprise solutions for iPhone
  • Over-the-Air syncing for "MobileMe"
  • Redesigned MacBook Pro
  • iPhone 2.0 delayed / ship date
So, how did we do?
Many of the things we predicted did actually come true (to our amazement!). We are extremely pleased with our predictions this year as we guessed everything that was released. All in all, we were 54.5% (6 right, 5 wrong) correct with our predictions. But we were spot on with the .Mac rebranding ("MobileMe"), 10.6 "Snow Leopard" preview, and the iPhone 3G / iPhone 2.0 announcement / delayed release.
