WWDC Moves to August -- Apple has opened registration for the 2006 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), which is interesting primarily because the dates for this year's conference are August 7th through 11th, roughly two months later than recent instances of WWDC. Though wags have suggested that the date change was designed so WWDC didn't conflict with the World Cup in Germany (which might prevent European developers from attending), it's more likely that the date change means that the next version of Mac OS X - currently thought to be called Leopard - isn't ready for a June showing, causing Apple to move WWDC later in the year so as to be able to discuss Leopard appropriately with Macintosh developers. Of course, it's also possible that there was merely a scheduling conflict with the venue that Apple wanted, and that August was the next available date. Even if it is true that Apple is delaying WWDC for Leopard's sake, there's no telling whether or not the delay would affect Leopard's eventual ship date. [ACE]
Increase Boom Volume Quickly
If you're using Boom to increase the volume on your Mac, you can change the amount to which Boom increases the volume quickly in two ways. Either use the slider available from Boom's menu bar icon, or enable and set hotkeys (Command-Shift-+ and Command-Shift-- by default). Then, when you need that push to 11, more volume is available at the click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard.
