Expo Analysis: Paul Kafasis, John Gruber, John Moltz

In this special edition of the Macworld Podcast from the Expo show floor, I’m joined by a veritable Who’s Who of Mac intelligensia. And also, John Moltz is here.

Joining me and Macworld contributor (and erstwhile Crazy Apple Rumors proprietor) Moltz are Daring Fireball’s John Gruber and Rogue Amoeba CEO Paul Kafasis.

Our topic of conversation? Tuesday’s Macworld Expo keynote, with special attention paid to iPhoto ’09, changes at the iTunes Store, and the 17-inch MacBook Pro’s battery.

Show Notes

We rate the performance of Apple executive Phil Schiller in standing in for Steve Jobs. Judge Schiller’s performance yourself by downloading the keynote from the iTunes Store.

I mentioned attending a Bill Gates keynote. You can read the tale of my 2007 CES experience at MacUser.

Our iTunes discussion touches on Apple’s move to drop digital rights management restrictions from iTunes tracks and how that might affect the Amazon MP3 service.

Our roundtable of interesting things on the show floor mentions BusySync and the Ecamm BT-1 Wireless Webcam (which was a Best of Show winner, incidentally).

We also speculate on the future of Macworld Expo, what on account of Apple pulling out of the trade show after this year’s Expo.
