Mix: WWDC, Apple Support, iPod chef, Jobs’ house


As expected, Steve Jobs will give a keynote address to kick off Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference on Monday, June 11. The address, which will begin at 10:00am Pacific, will center around Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

Apple has launched its revamped support site, with large graphics for top support issues and easier overall navigation.

Renowned chef Heston Blumanthal of the UK restaurant Fat Duck has begun loaning iPods to diners who order his “Sound of the Sea” dish. The iPods are loaded with sounds from the ocean, meant to enhance the dining experience.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has lost a key court ruling in his bid to demolish “The Jackling House,” which he bought in 1984. In 2001, Jobs received a demolition permit for the home, which was built in 1925, but a group called Uphold Our Heritage sued to save the home. Jobs has previously referred to the house as an “abomination.”
