• Who Released Apple's WWDC 2013 Vids on YouTube?

    Someone may be in big trouble at Apple right now. In fact, if Steve Jobs invented an iDungeon to torture disloyal company employees, there's a good chance someone will soon be dispatched to that repository of information leakers on the Apple payroll.

    On Monday morning, a series of WWDC 2013 videos - we're talking more than 100 individual vids - were posted on YouTube. And if you weren't paying close attention, you probably wouldn't have noticed that the clips weren't actually posted by Apple. Instead, there's a mystery leaker. Google has even confirmed that Apple did not upload the clips to YouTube.

    And it makes sense why Apple wouldn't. Apple, After all, charges a pretty penny ($1,600 per ticket) for attendees to make the most out of the annual developer's conference, the most recent of which was held last month. So giving away a ton of valuable content derived from dozens of sessions held throughout the conference simply doesn't make much business sense.

    Apple developers are contractually bound not to reveal details about Apple’s coming plans or technologies that they learn about at WWDC, not from disclosing screen captures or information about upcoming Mac and iPhone operating systems they learn by having early access to the platforms.
    Although Apple didn't upload the vids, Apple was evidently involved in their production (as evidenced by the clips being presented in 1080P quality). In fact, the only mystery bigger than who uploaded the videos tonight is... why haven't they been pulled down from YouTube yet?


    The videos have now been removed from YouTube.

      $1,600 per ticket for developers to learn about basically NOTHING

      You know, pretty much all of those videos were available to anyone wit a registered developer account. Anyone could have uploaded those. it's not necessarily a leak.
