Apple Excludes Mac Apps from Apple Design Awards

Apple has confirmed the WWDC today, but there are some bad news for Mac developers. First, tickets cost $300 more than last year; more importantly, there won't be any Apple Design Awards for Mac applications - which could be a clear sign of Apple focused on the iPhone OS platform rather than the Mac.

Too bad, we were betting on Transmit 4 winning an ADA this year.
