Apple WWDC tickets sell out in under 2 minutes

Tickets for Apple's WWDC event, where they are expected to launch the next iPhone, sold out in less than two minutes. Apple put the tickets up at 10 A.M PDT, costing $1,500 for a week's worth of developer-related content. 

Previously, tickets to WWDC sold out in under five minutes and this year is a new record. In 2011, tickets took 12 hours to sell out. 2012 WWDC tickets took around 2 hours to sell out, so this is a staggering achievement. Google's developer event, I/O, sold out in 49 minutes

As developer Will Stratfach notes, WWDC 2013 actually sold out in 1 minute and 40 seconds: 

Many developers were annoyed that WWDC tickets sold out so quickly, having not secured places at the event. However, it is estimated that Apple netted $8.9 million from ticket sales, or $89,000 per second. 

WWDC 2013 runs from June 10th to June 14th.
