Most of this week’s news was taken over by the announcement of the Palm Pre and the Adobe Browser Lab, which got the web buzzing. The rumour mill for this weeks WWDC is at full speed, with Gizmodo posting some interesting rumours surrounding the iPhone, Snow Leopard and an Apple Tablet. We shall wait and see what’s announced.
Along with the big news there were plenty of other great articles and resources being published over the last week, my favourite of which are summarised below.
