iPhone 3G, Snow Leopards and More at WWDC

Iphone 3G is coming on July 11 the new post with photosAre you getting ready for the 3G iPhone that will be announced at the WWDC tomorrow. Accompanying this version of iPhone is the infamous Mac OSX “Snow Leopard” 10.6, that might also get announced. the rumor is that Snow Leopard might get delivered to the developers at the WWDC 2008.

Although I only have Intel macs, gizmodo says that this snow leopard will support power pc as well, infact according to information they got;
• Work has definitely been done on PPC-native drivers, which means that PPC is unlikely to be dropped.
• A number of drivers didn't load on a Core 2 Duo MacBook, because it was using a 64-bit kernel and the drivers were only 32. The kernel was not only 64-bit though.
• "uname -a" reports: Darwin localhost 10.0.0d1 Darwin Kernel Version 10.0.0d1: Thu May XX XX:XX:XX XDT 2008; root:xnu-1286~1/RELEASE_I386 i386
• Googling that kernel reveals that there might actually be SnowLeopard releases out in the wild already, processing Rosetta@Home protein folding clients.
If you want to get a live feed of WWDC, MacRumors is the place I go and it at But to be fair, Gizmodo live also might do a good job. In any case it is better to have more.
