Weekly Roundup

WWDC is nigh! In just one week, Tim Cook and, ostensibly, Eddy Cue, Craig Federighi, Jony Ive, Bob Mansfield, and Phil Schiller, plus some 3rd parties, will be on-stage to unveil iOS 7, OS X 10.9, and maybe even some new Mac hardware. Except for Ive, presumably, who will be talking to us via video link from an undisclosed location.

Cheers,
Aaron
