Apple releases WWDC 2011 app, full events schedule

If you're attending Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference next week, you'll want to pick up the official conference app

If you're attending Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference next week, you'll want to pick up the official conference app, released Thursday for both the iPhone and iPad, and check out new updated information on the WWDC Web site.

The free app — aptly named WWDC — allows you to navigate, schedule, and read all about the happenings at San Francisco's Moscone West next week. It contains a full schedule and the location of all sessions, labs, and official after-hours excitement; you can create your own customized schedule by favoriting the events you wish to attend, and even book time in advance to speak with an Apple engineer at one of the User Interface, App Review, iTunes Connect, Program Support, or Developer Publication labs.

You'll also be able to keep yourself updated on all the latest conference news and browse through any official images from show photographers. Unfortunately, access to the app is limited to those attending WWDC: if you're stuck at home, you won't be able to envy the session list from afar (for whatever good it would do you).

Whether attending the conference or not, you can also check out all the details on Apple's WWDC Website, also updated Thursday. Among other things, the site offers the latest news on this year's conference; an in-depth attendee guide with some helpful tips (in case you haven't been paying attention on Twitter); the full schedule of sessions and a labs overview (conference attendees only); information on big events like Monday's keynote or the annual Stump the Experts panel; an in-depth FAQ, if you're curious about Apple's policy on photography, the Apple Design Awards, and other such information; and a complete floor plan (for those that get easily turned around).

The WWDC app is available to download for free from the App Store for any iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad running iOS 4.2 or later.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
