WWDC 2006

Well, Gear and I just returned from an exciting week in San Francisco where we attended the World Wide Developers Conference for Apple developers. We definitely learned quite a bit and will be digesting the information for a while. But, we did leave with some definite ideas regarding what we could and could not do for our OS X customers.

More importantly, we have some ideas about how to deliver bits and pieces of functionality (while we hone our skills) rather quickly. This should come as good news for many, since we really want to avoid having our Mac customers wait for a complete development cycle for WKO+ and the rest of the product line. What does that really mean? Well, it means a full blown version of WKO+ on OS X is still a long ways off. But, we do have the beginnings of a plan to deliver support for uploading various devices and some charting and graphing natively within the Mac. It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out.

We also came away with many UI ideas that will benefit Windows users as well. This is important because our current list of coming features is both big and powerful.
