Here’s a look at the banner images of WWDC over the past 10 years.

You’ve obviously heard that Apple is going to refresh its Maps application in the forthcoming iOS6 and move away from Google Maps that Apple has used since the launch of the iPhone in 2007, replacing it by the company’s own service.
The Wall Street Journal chronicles the last five years that have saw Google and Apple going from best of corporate friends to sworn enemies spending a great deal of time disparaging each other in courts. The latest confrontation seems to be closely connected with Maps.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple is going to update “at least four” out of company’s five Mac lines at Worldwide Developer Conference on June 11.

iFixit in conjunction with chip analysts ChipWorks tore down Samsung's new Galaxy S III smartphone, revealing that the device is sourcing a newer version of the same Sony-made camera used in the iPhone 4S.
ChipWorks confirmed on Friday that the backside-illuminated sensor found in Samsung's new Galaxy S III handset is being sourced from Sony and may be a newer version of the component used in Apple's iPhone 4S. While iFixit initially claimed that the sensor is "basically the same unit" used in the iPhone 4S, further examination of the chip revealed that it could be a slightly refreshed product. It seems that the camera's sensor is where the similarities between the two devices end, however, as Samsung uses its own memory and optics to complete the unit.

For those who didn't follow the conference, or get caught up in the excitement that surrounded it, the 'one more thing' bomb-shell was related to the fact that the Dream Team used their presence at the security event to officially introduce the world to the v2.0 release of their one-click Absinthe jailbreak solution. After months of hard work and exploit finding, mixed with weeks of will-they-won't-they speculation, it turns out that they indeed did introduce us to Absinthe 2.0.
Our instructions how to jailbreak your device using Absinthe are available here.

Techno Buffalo created really good iPhone 5 mockup rendering. They used the recently leaked schematic depicting a taller device.
The European Telecommunications Institute (ETSI) has adopted a standardized design for the next-generation "nano-SIM" that is 40% smaller than the current micro-SIM standard.
Today's SIM card designs take up a significant amount of space inside a mobile device. This space is more and more valuable in today's handsets which deliver an ever increasing number of features.
Apple is still interested in improving Bluetooth power consumption in its portable devices when converting streaming media to a compatible format. This week AppleInsider discovered a patent application filed in December of 2008. The application is entitled "Data Format Conversion for Electronic Devices" and notes that converting data to a new format can be a power-hungry process.
"The format conversion performed by the portable electronic device may quickly drain the energy stored in its battery," Apple's filing reads. "Therefore, it would be desirable to provide an energy-efficient technique for converting data to a Bluetooth-compatible format."
Evidence of the purchase has been revealed in the weekly bulletin of Italy’s antitrust regulatory body AGCM. The most relevant portion of the bulletin published on May 28 said (English translation):
