Apple just published the video of the tribute to Steve special event at the Apple Campus on October 19, 2011. So kind, that the Apple folks are sharing the event with us. Thanks. It’s really moving.

Thank you for so much, Steve.

I was deeply moved by Your commencement speech in Stanford as I am when I watch it today …

Here’s the Quicktime video stream of this years WWDC 2011 keynote about Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud … and how it all works together. So, tune in to see Steve Jobs, Phil Schiller and Scott Forstall presenting the newest software developments.

This years WorldWideDeveloperConference WWDC 2011 sould out within 8 hours. So, bad luck if you’ve been on a transatlanic flight at that time. Today, the lucky ones of the iOS & Mac developer community, who managed to get a ticked this year, gather at the Moscone West Center in San Francisco. Probably, Apple will share the videos of all of the WWDC sessions for free with their registered iOS & Mac developers, like they did last year. And even if the Cupertino guys won’t stream Steve Jobs keynote live, we’ll get a video stream short after the event. For real live coverage we can rely on the all those people blogging from the keynote. The keynote begins at 10:00 AM PST (07:00 PM CET) and there are a lot of things to cover: The next version of Mac OS X called Lion, the next version of iOS for iPhones & iPads and Apples new cloud service iCould.

Great to see Steve Jobs on stage again. The presentation is about three blocks of information:

  1. The market: Steve presents some amazing numbers … 15 Million iPads sold, 100 Million iPhones sold, 100 Million iBooks downloaded, 200 Million Accounts on the iTunes/AppStore/iBookStore with credit cards, $2 Billion payout to AppStore developers.
  2. The iPad 2: Apple listened to their customers and integrated most of the features iPad users are demanding. But they also kept the prices and the battery life. The new A5 Dual-Core CPU is up to twice as fast and the graphics performance up to 9x. With the HDMI-cable accessory, it’s possible to mirror the iPad 2 screen to a flatscreen or beamer. This is perfect for live app demos and presentations. The iPad 2 is now equipped with a front and a rear camera. The new design of the iPad 2 and the magnetic covers speak for themselves. The design team of Jony Ive did a great job.
  3. The software: iOS 4.3 is shipping with a lot of improvements under the hood. By introducing iMovie and Garageband for the iPad Apple shows, that the iPad is not only a consuming device, but also a device to create things.

But I only can recommend to watch Steve Jobs, Scott Forstall, Randy Ubillos and Xander Soren on the Quicktime streaming video yourself. Sorry PC-folks: The streaming video requires Safari 4 or 5 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Safari on iOS 3 or later.
