While everyone's pretty much taken for granted that a Monday, June 10 WWDC 2013 kickoff would be a Monday, June 10, 10am (pacific) WWDC Keynote, it's still nice to see it confirmed. John Paczkowski of AllThingsD:
Evernote for iPhone, iPad, and Mac have been updated today, adding a feature long requested by many users: reminders. Users can now click or tap the small alarm clock icon to add a reminder to any of their notes, which will pin those notes to the top of their note list in a new Reminders section, which can be manually reordered.
Popular accessory maker Moshi is back, with a pair of new protective cases for the Retina MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air. The cases are the second generation in Moshi's Codex line of MacBook cases and will be available for both sizes of MacBook Air, and both sizes of Retina MacBook Pro.
Dictation is a fantastic, Siri-like service on iPhone and iPad that, at the tap of a mic button, transforms what you say out loud into text on the screen. But sometimes that mic button ghosts over, grays out, and otherwise becomes un-tabble. That kills the natural-language interface, makes apps less accessible, and can otherwise stop your productivity dead.
Luckily, there's a fix, even if it's only slightly less annoying then the problem!
It's debatable whether we'll ever see the release of the jOBS movie outside its initial screenings, but the show, as they say, must go on. And to that effect, actor Ashton Kutcher -- who played the late Steve Jobs in the movie -- is here at the CTIA conference in Las Vegas. We'll be liveblogging the conversation this morning, starting at 9:30 a.m. PDT -- that's 12:30 p.m. on the East Cost. Join us!

Microsoft has launched their new Windows 8 commercial, and appears to have recruited Siri to help them take on the iPad. OK, so Siri would never do such a thing, but they're licensing the same voice, and it achieves the same effect. The 30-second clip takes aim at what the iPad can't do, that a Windows 8 tablet can. The whole thing is a parody of an Apple ad, right down to the chopsticks played on Garageband at the end.
