WWDC ’07 was mostly a rehash of last year’s WWDC keynote and pretty uneventful. Steve Jobs previewed, again, Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard and introduced web apps for iPhone and Safari for Windows.

That all changed on May 22 2005 at All Things D3 when Steve Jobs announced Apple’s intention to include podcasting to the upcoming iTunes.
