    If not, I'll just get someone who's still in school to buy a copy :bigthumb:

    When I had to buy windows xp, it only cost me $5 through the campus store

    yeah. no comment.

    eh...screw it. somebody needs to say it. nobody's right 100% of the time, but you need to check your facts better before posting stuff or at least preface your postings with "i believe..." or, "if i'm not mistaken..." or something to that effect, but you seem to be off on a lot of the things you post as fact in the mac shack. don't mean to be a jerk and i'm not trying to start anything, but i've just noticed that a lot of the stuff you've posted in here is just plain wrong or your answering stuff wrong because you don't understand the questions. do a little homework before you answer (or don't post at all if you don't really have a clue). just a friendly request. :)

    I would bet my bottom $ that it will be released at WWDC this summer. The conference is in June this year I think.

    :werd:

    Most the stuff he posts if off the wall in all the threads. A little research goes a long way before chiming in. I feel sorry for the Mac newbs that read the posts thinking the info is accurate.

    Same here.


    BTW, does anyone know what is required to get into MWDC? Can anyone get in, or do you have to have credentials of some sort. And lastly, anyone know what to expect to pay to get in? Does it cost more to get in to watch the keynote live?

    I'm close enough that I would like to go personally and post up pics for OT.

    Yes, I went to WWDC two years ago. You have to be a developer, I believe it costs $500 plus some other fees for normal developers. I received a scholarship when I went because I am a student developer. Typically for student developers they have a scholarship application available in March, and notifications are sent out in April or May. Most of the people in our local MUG received scholarships, I think there was four of us who went in total.

    Most people there are attending it on business. It is not like the MacWorld conferences.

    EDIT: here, I found a FAQ
    http://developer.apple.com/students/studentfaq.html#301
    On the FAQ they seem to stress that competition for the scholarships is high. Maybe it has increased since I went, but I did not have very much Mac programming experience when I went.
