Apple posts SDK stream

Apple has posted the event stream for the iPhone software developer's kit session that took place at the company's head office in Cupertino. Apple's "SDK Roadmap" event transpired at 10AM Pacific Standard Time, where Steve Jobs, Phil Schiller, and many representatives from different developers offered their opinions and views of the project. Venture capitalist firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers was on hand as well, announcing a $100 million "iFund" for entrepreneurial developers.

To distribute developer software, Apple also unveiled the App Store, which is accessible directly from the iPhone and iPod touch, as well as through the iTunes store. Using the developer's kit, companies such as Electronic Arts, SEGA, AOL, among others, demonstrated what they were able to accomplish in a two week span, some of which had never even developed for an Apple platform.

Lastly, Apple made a major announcement for enterprise, allowing the iPhone to synchronize directly with Microsoft Exchange servers. The service supports mail, contact, and calendar synchronicity, while also featuring "push" email and remote device wiping.
