Now Apple's cancelling WWDC ticket purchases

Apple's WWDC ticket fiasco continues. Developers who ordered more than one ticket for Apple's WWDC have had their orders cancelled.

Apple's WWDC ticket fiasco continues with news that developers who ordered more than one ticket for Apple's WWDC have had their orders cancelled.

Reports claim that developers who have purchased more than one $1,600 ticket on their credit card have been told find their order is "Not eligible". They are advised to call Apple.

Many businesses have ordered tickets in bulk for staff on a single credit card and are being told that their order has been cancelled, according to The Next Web.

The scheme is designed to stop ticket touts selling on tickets at a huge profit.

Whether these additional tickets will be resold at a later date remains to be seen. The company has already come under fire for putting tickets on sale at 5.30am Pacific Time last Wednesday, before many developers on the west coast of America were even awake. The tickets had sold out before 7.30am PT.

The news that tickets had sold out so fast lead to an Indie Developer Lab event being planned for developers who missed out.

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.

Jack Jeffries

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.

MSI PS63

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.
