Apple to showcase OS X iPhone 2.0 platform

New platform includes iPhone SDK, App Store

Apple will showcase the OS X iPhone 2.0 platform at its annual Worldwide Development Conference scheduled to occur in San Francisco next month.

According to Apple, the event will feature an iPhone track tailored to give mobile developers hands-on experience with the OS X iPhone 2.0 platform, which will include the iPhone software development kit (SDK) and the App Store, which the company says will allow developers to wirelessly sell and deliver their applications to iPhone users. Additionally, developers will have the opportunity to work with Apple engineers to create their own applications on site using the iPhone's Multi-Touch user interface, animation technology and APIs.

Apple originally announced that new applications for the iPhone could be purchased through the App Store in March. Apple says the new application will be modeled after its popular iTunes store and will let users download applications directly to their devices. Apple is letting developers set their own prices for the applications and will give them 70 per cent of all sales revenue they generate.

The Worldwide Development Conference is scheduled to kick off on June 9 with a keynote address from Apple CEO Steve Jobs. The conference is expected to last five days.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
