    Who's gonna be at Macworld? I'll be there as always. Should be fun. There are a number of parties you can try to get into (always a number of them being open bar, oh the stories I could tell). We may have some extra exhibit passes closer to the show but we have to give them to customers and Apple employees first (we'll see if we have any left this year).

    My boss will the at the Keynote and in the front row (he's speaking at the expo). I'm a lil jealous.

    It's funny, every year the minute the show opens someone rushes to your booth and says "Do you guys support that product just announced 5 minutes ago?!" They even did it last year. We had been following online and from friends updates from the speech so I told him "We don't since it won't be released for months. Apple doesn't even support it yet." "Well that stand over there says they support it.", was his reply. I wish I could kick people in the balls at the show.

    There are always a couple that come around and try to out geek the geeks. They try to ask the most obscure question they can because they think it makes their penis (which they'll never get to use on a human female) larger. They never beat my boss. He's been programming since he was 6 and worked for EA at age 8. It's great to see them get shot down over and over again.

    Your boss worked for EA at 8 years old? Does he have robot legs? :mamoru:


    :x: In for a exhibit pass, I like to go to see the new hardware.

    Why not just wait till it's over and read it all at once?

    I can't guarantee we'll have any left (think we got 50 last year) but I'll let the Mac Shack know if we do. 2 years ago it was iPodworld San Fran which was sad (iPod stuff made up almost 1/2 of the exhibitors there). Last year the Mac stuff took the show back which was great. I hope it's the same this year. They've gotten bigger again and have the west hall open again (they did last year too) but they need to throw all the iPod stuff in the west hall and keep the south for Mac stuff (there are TONS of stupid Japanese companies at the show with knockoff iPod cases and crap that are worthless).

    Yea, I didn't go last year cause the year before it was all ipod stuff. At least I got to see the macbook pros after they were announced, still just as sexy today as the day they were released.

    Do people actually watch the live stream? Last time when Touch was announced people sat in front of the computer watching the live stream for a few hours. :rofl:

    Rumors up until the show are just that, rumors. People get so caught up in the hype of the rumors that the show never lives up to their expectations. It's pretty sad really. "OMG they didn't release a tablet Mac with built-in 3G wireless like the rumors from a what they claimed was a reliable source! This sucks!"
