“If you really want to attend Apple’s sold-out Worldwide Developers Conference in June but didn’t snap up tickets right away, sellers on eBay and Craigslist might have what you want – but at a hefty price,” Bob Brown reports for Network World.
“Apple sold out its event, which will be focused on iOS and Mac OS X software, in under 12 hours,” Brown reports. “Tickets went for $1,600 face value.”
“Last year, WWDC sold out in 8 days, indicating that Apple has somehow become an even a hotter ticket as developers rush for gold to be had in building and selling products for iPhone, iPad, Mac and other Apple platforms,” Brown reports. “Apple dominates the global market for mobile apps and last year sold $1.8 billion worth, according to one recent report. We spotted WWDC 2011 tickets Tuesday morning on both eBay and Craigslist, but not at face value of course.”
Brown reports, “One ticket on eBay features a Buy Now price of $3,150 and bidding on the ticket is scheduled to take place between now and April 5.”
