Years from now, people will gaze upon this coat and as "Where did you get such a fine and luxurious garment?" And you will be able to answer, "WWDC 2014." Registering for WWDC has never been a cheap affair, and this year developers are being gifted with a black jacket embroidered with the WWDC14 wordmark and a $25 gift card for use in the App Store.
That gift card bears the message "25 years and coding", and yes, it's for the App Store. Where else would a developer want to spend $25 — perhaps on a brand-new Apple Thunderbolt 2 display? Nope, sorry, no can do. It's for apps. But it is at least a special edition gift card bearing the WWDC 2014 teaser design. That'll be worth something someday, right?
