As part of registration for WWDC, Apple usually hands out a few items for the participants in addition to a map of the Moscone Center and the WWDC Sessions schedule. Normally, there’s some sort of laptop bag (backpacks in 2004 and 2005), a T-shirt and a pen with notebook. This year, Apple changed things up a little, as the backpack turned into more of a laptop sleeve bag, and also handed out an insulated coffee tumbler in place of the pen and paper. I took some pictures to share, as after registration was finished I had some time on my hands.

  3. It’s amazing how Apple can give away so much stuff when they charge such a small price for the entry fee!

    It’s a very small price for the entry fee indeed! It’s almost free.

  6. You guys have a dry sense of humour …

    Though I did twice get in for free, but that was on a competitive award basis.

    CK.

  7. Well… in 2001 they gave a leather jacket… in 2002 an iSight…

    And yes, the WWDC is almost free… you pay for the goodies!

    No, I believe the iSight was 2003. I was there in 2002, and there was nothing given away so far as I can recall. The next year I wasn’t able to go, and they gave away iSights. Sigh. Had to buy one with my own money! 2004 and 2005 were fairly low on the swag scale, as was this year (my first year back).

    But, hey, a laptop bag can be useful. As laptop bags go, it’s a fairly nice compact bag. Not overly protective, but fairly well so considering the lack of bulk. And it’s got a nice fuzzy soft interior to keep the scratches away. Not enough pockets for daily use by me, though, unfortunately.

  9. In 2000 they gave away a black WWDC turtleneck and a big satchel-y thing (not as stylish as this year’s looks from the photo, but much bigger). I still use both.

  10. Hey, Sam: I was there in 2k as well. The turtleneck still makes me feel all fanboy-ish when I wear it (and it’s in perfect nick) and I use the Kensington-design laptop bag all the time. Quality schwag.

    Remember the frozen sculpture, that made martinis? Pour the grog in the top, and it slid through its innards, and came out alcohololicious. Mmmmm…martini……
