As we head towards WWDC 2014 we thought it would be fun to look back at Apple World Wide Developer Conferences past, what they introduced, and what impact they made. We're continuing with WWDC 2008, which introduced new MacBook batteries, iOS 3 (iPhone OS 3.0), Snow Leopard, and the iPhone 3GS.
"Apple retires Snow Leopard from support, leaves 1 in 5 Mac vulnerable to attacks," reads the headline on Computerworld. Is it the end for Apple's venerable OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" operating system, and are you at risk if you're still using it? Hardly.

Apple has just released their second minor update to their latest desktop operating system, Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.2. While there are a lot of fixes for Mac users, iPhone users may want to pay particular attention to the "general reliability improvements" for MobileMe and iDisk. (And yes, the infamous "guest account" data deletion bug looks to have been squashed.

Rumors of an iTablet continue to gain steam while Apple boats a metric ton of refinements for their new Mac OS X Snow Leopard release, including better performance and smaller footprint, then goes and adds a new virtual keyboard that just begs to be touched...
...Ah, yeah, here come the Mac OS X Snow Leopard on iTablet stories!
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard does indeed have some "refinements and enhancements" for the iPhone, namely a brand spanking new iPhone logo in System Preferences > Network when you're tethered via the iPhone.
