Attendees are mostly software developers, and some of them are very nervous that Apple will announce something that will ruin their business overnight.

This post is sponsored by Systweak Software, maker of Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro.

Digital photography uses a lot less paper, but it still creates a big mess. Maybe that explains why Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro is currently ranked No. 7 on Apple’s list of the top 10 paid downloads in the Mac App Store.
