• WWDC 2011 Banners, iCloud Icon Adorn Moscone Center



    Apple has begun dressing up San Francisco's Moscone Center West for the Monday kick-off of Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference. While there's nothing noteworthy about the banners in particular, we are getting our first look at the new iCloud logo, which certainly looks very Apple-esque.

    Based on the few images that have turned up so far from the facility, which is still being decorated at this hour, the iCloud logo bears a striking resemblance to the familiar MobileMe logo, particularly with regard to the old-school cloud shape that looks like something out of Super Mario World.

    Of course, we haven't seen all the decorations just yet, as the banners and imagery from the main room in which the presentation will be made are still being embargoed. And we may not see much more until Monday when the doors open and the press enters. But it's clear from the few images we've seen that Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5, and iCloud are the three pillars from this year's WWDC.

    Apple CEO Steve Jobs and company will kick off the 2011 Worldwide Developers Conference with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 am PST. At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software - Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.
