Kevin Rose gives his familiar WWDC predictions [Video]

The Digg founder and current Google Ventures partner has a storied history with Apple rumors. For instance, he predicted the Retina iPad but was just over a year early on that. In that post we noted that Rose’s predictions were a bit shaky:

Rose has been very hit-and-miss over the years in terms of his Apple predictions. Prior to the launch of the first iPhone he incorrectly predicted the device having a physical keyboard and most recently, Rose claimed the new Apple TV would be called the “iTV” and would include an App Store as well as ad supported TV stations. On the other hand, Rose was correct about the Apple TV’s September launch date, iPad remote feature, and $99 price point and was also correct about the fourth-generation iPod nano’s features and even posted a photo of it. Rose was also correct about copy/paste in iOS 3.0 as well as new iTunes features.

In this case, Kevin Rose’s source seems to be a big 9to5mac reader. MacBook Airs? Sure, sure. Big changes in iOS 7? Yeah, yeah and yeah. We’ll have the definitive WWDC 2013 roundup later today.

Kevin Rose Stories November 3, 2011

The first app to come out of Kevin Rose’s newly founded app development company Milk has hit the iTunes App Store for free. The app is called Oink and is available for both the iPhone and iPad and allows you to ‘rate and rank things around you’. The app takes a Foursquare check-in approach, but focuses on ranking a product inside of a business rather than checking into the actual business.

Oink has a social aspect to it allowing you to build “cred” as you check-in more. Your check-ins are sent out to all of your Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare friends.

What’s really cool about the app is that it will help users find not only the best places in town, but the best items in the places. Oink gives you the ability to rank those items. We’re checking it out right now.  (via TechCrunch)
