Take Your Business Out Of The Dark With Daylite

Liveblog: WWDC 2012 Edition

It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t write WWDC as dubbya-dubbya-DC at least once this year, so we’re going to get that out of the way before we’re slapped in the face with a case of the Mondays. Although, Monday doesn’t have to be all that bad — this year we’re going to try to deliver the goods live from 4th and Howard streets as we hold @SteveStreza hostage to do the dirty work of live blogging and taking pictures while we sleep in late, hang out in our PJs, and drink fancy coffee. Only once the pot is empty and our live blogger escapes our clutches will we finally sit down to bring you all day coverage of Apple’s latest product announcements. You dig?

Cool, because we’re going to be right here Monday morning as WWDC 2012 kicks off with this year’s Keynote. See you tomorrow!
