Developers abuzz at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Enterprising gearheads converged on San Francisco Monday morning for the official start of TechCrunch Disrupt. The conference, a hot ticket for startups, is anticipating news of a new iPhone that could come Tuesday.
The founders of the transportation startup Lyft are among the headliners at TechCrunch Disrupt for "disrupting" their industry. When Lyft began, there was one basic requirement to use it. You had to have an iPhone. It took months before Lyft finally supported phones that run Google's Android software.
Though the bay area is rife with iPhones, the rest of the world has seen a tidal wave of Android adoption.
So even as Apple prepares to launch new iPhones and their biggest software update ever, the app makers at Disrupt also have Android on the brain.
