iPhoneDevCamp 2 in August
iPhoneDevCamp 2 is an upcoming not-for-profit gathering to develop applications for iPhone and iPod touch using both the native SDK and web standards. The second event, which follows the first iPhoneDevCamp held in early July 2007, is being held at Adobe Systems offices in San Francisco from August 1-3 and will include Cocoa Touch developers, web developers, UI designers, and testers. Designed as a hand-on event, the organizers say that development projects will include both solo and team efforts, based on expertise, to work in ad-hoc project development teams. Projects will include new applications for iPhone and iPod touch, migrating Mac OS X applications to iPhone and iPod touch, and testing and optimizing applications for iPhone and iPod touch.
PA Semi's PowerPC chips
Apple will reportedly offer legacy support for PA Semi's line of PowerPC-based processors following pressure from the government and clearing up rumors that surfaced after the chipmaker's acquisition by Apple last month. In effort to continue to push the chip power efficiency envelope, the Cupertino-based company purchased the microprocessor design company for nearly $300 million, but reports following the announcement said that the US Defense Department may have objected if Apple discontinued support for its current chips that are used in a wide variety of military devices, but are not used in Apple's current generation products (PowerPC chips were used by Apple before its transition to the Intel architecture almost three years ago). The Register says that the government may have pressured Apple into supporting the current PowerPC-chip design and PA Semi's customers.
