Apple prepares Moscone for next week's WWDC

Apple's annual developers conference is less than a week away, which means it's time to get the venue ready, apparently.

With less than a week to go before its big developers conference next week, Apple has already begun decorating the outside of the Moscone Center in San Francisco, where the week-long event is held.

As usual, that involves plastering large Apple logos on the outside of the three story building, as well as adorning some of the inside halls with large graphics.

There aren't too many surprises inside so far, though that could change as more signage goes up. In years past, that's included early looks at icons for products like iCloud. Apple typically covers up time-sensitive things with black wrapping that's removed when the keynote's over.

Oh, and in case you were wondering what the ginormous Apple logo looked like before it went up, here's some of it being prepped to go:

Why do so many of us still buy cars with off-road abilities?

Cities are full of cars like the Subaru XV that can drive off-road but will never see any challenging terrain. What drives us to buy cars with these abilities when we don't really need them most of the time?
