Joining me to share their Mac memories are Ted Landau, Christopher Breen, Dan Moren, Jackie Dove, Serenity Caldwell, and Sharon Zardetto. Throughout the podcast, I also talk with Jason Snell who visited with a trio of Apple executives to talk about the Mac on its 30th birthday.

If you’ve been invested in the Apple community for awhile you may be pondering to yourself. “Hey, it’s January. Isn’t Macworld/iWorld (or Macworld Expo if you go back that far) supposed to be happening around now?”

In the past, yes. But the show has moved to March, which is closer than you think—so close, in fact, that I thought it would be a good idea to catch up with the guy who runs the thing, Paul Kent, to talk about what we can expect.

It’s no secret that with a new year comes another edition of Las Vegas’ massive Consumer Electronics Show (or CES to the initiated). Although it’s a show formally unattended by Apple, there’s always something to see for those interested in Apple and the markets it inhabits. This year, Macworld’s Philip Michaels and Jason Snell were in attendance and report in from a parking lot beneath Vegas’ not-as-quiet-as-you-might-imagine monorail.

The new Mac Pro is here. Last week we got our hands on it, then took some pictures of it. Then we tested it, and Dan Frakes compared its size to household objects. Our review is forthcoming, but in the meantime, you can listen to us talk about it!

I'm joined by Macworld Lab Director James Galbraith, who tested the thing, and Senior Editor Dan Frakes, who reviewed it. We talk about what makes the Mac Pro tick and who might want it. Then I'm joined by Other World Computing's Larry O'Connor to talk about upgrading the new Mac Pro and about the upgrade possibilites for old Mac Pro users who might not be ready to take the plunge.
