Short musical about Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference

WWDC 2011

At this year’s always highly anticipated Apple World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) the keynote speech featured Steve Jobs and Steve Ballmer for two hours of demonstrations and industry hype words. The conference is currently under way in San Francisco, ending on June 10th.

There is extensive coverage of the keynote that unveiled new Apple features set to launch that set the bar for cloud computing (and computing in general) fairly high. MG Siegler’s “The Best Overlooked Numbers And Subtle Features From WWDC 2011” article offers one of the clearest overviews and analysis of the speech.

What if you don’t have two hours?

If you don’t have two hours, you can’t stomach any more words like “magical,” or you simply have the best sense of humor in the world and enjoy ridiculous videos, the video above is for you. In just a few minutes, the singing trio breaks down the highlights of the keynote speech using the live blogging notes from MacRumors.com.

Stats from the keynote

If you’re not sick of hearing about Apple yet, then we’ll share with you some of the statistics given during the keynote, otherwise, stick to the video above and you’ll have the talking points.

  • Apple boasts 54 million active Mac users, only 27% of which use desktops.
  • iPad sales have exceeded 25 million in barely over a year.
  • iTunes has now officially sold over 15 billion songs and offers over 18 million total songs in the iTunes library.
  • iBooks have exploded with over 130 million downloads in roughly 12 months.
  • The number one point of purchase for software is now officially the Mac App Store.
  • The App Store has seen over 14 billion apps downloaded since it opened.
  • The App Store has 425,000+ apps with 90,000 specifically for the iPad.

We could go on, but you get the point. The smartphone battle that Android is currently winning is only one piece of the industry pie and Apple again seeks not only to set the bar but has made it clear with their new releases that they’re a contender. This year’s WWDC wasn’t fluff- the keynote actually offered some incredible news, but it remains unseen how long it takes for the public to catch on to all of this cloud talk.
