At the WWDC, Apple fans are hoping to see Steve Jobs and a Mac tablet device. But they'll probably see Snow Leopard and iPhone software.
Apple has released its dates for its annual worldwide developer's conference, slated for June 8-12 in San Francisco. Of course, the blogosphere is already buzzing about the conference as the forum to introduce a new iPhone and new Mac operating system, called Snow Leopard.
Now that Leopard and the iPhone have shipped, Apple is dividing its annual developer conference into 3 tracks: iPhone, Macintosh and IT, which means fitting the first two into the enterprise. This could mark a new "halo" for the Macintosh coming from the thousands of programmers who will embrace the Mac OS X platform in order to write iPhone/iPod Touch apps.
While most attention on Mac input is focused on multitouch gestures on new notebooks and iPhone screens, even longtime Mac users may not know exactly how many buttons are on the Mighty Mouse that ships with desktop Macs.

My colleague Larry Dignan notes that Apple's forthcoming Leopard OS has been seen by analysts as a potential boon to Mac purchases.Yet as Larry and others report, Leopard's release is being pushed back from the spring to the fall because Apple feels it needs its engineering resources at the ready for getting the iPhone all dolled up for its June release.
So, Apple has delayed the launch of their Leopard until next October. Apple says that this is because the company needed to shift around key Mac OS X staff in order to make sure that the iPhone goes out of the door on time. This may be the case given the current state of Leopard. But does the delay matter?
