The ugly truth about the Macintosh industry is that while all the Mac users are nestled all snug in their beds or enjoying holiday cheer, the companies that make the Mac what it is -- and we who write about those companies for a living -- are preparing for the busiest time of our year.
That's because, for some unknowable and unfathomable reason, each year the Macworld Expo in San Francisco -- one of the Mac world's key events -- takes place during the first week of January.
So while you sip a glass of egg nog, rattle those presents under your tree, and count down the days to the year 2000, we'll be on the case of what's to come at Macworld Expo -- and this site, Macworld Expo Central, is the place you should visit to keep up to date on where the Mac is going in the year 2000.
Over the next couple of weeks leading up to Macworld Expo, Macworld Expo Central will feature breaking news from the reporters of MacWEEK and MacCentral, plus analysis from the editors of Macworld. We'll be providing overviews of every segment of the Mac community and what they have to look forward to, not just at Macworld Expo San Francisco, but the year 2000 as a whole.
Not only that, but we'll be providing features for those of you who are coming to San Francisco for the big show. Beloved columnist Andy Ihnatko will provide his own unique perspective on visiting San Francisco, and the Macworld editors will chime in as well.
Once the show begins, this will be the best place to find the latest news (from Macworld, MacCentral, and MacWEEK ), product information, scuttlebutt from the show floor, reports about the coolest Expo parties, and much more. We, the combined Web sites of Mac Publishing, plan for Macworld Expo Central to be by far the best place to read about all the goings-on at one of the most important events of the Macintosh year.
So stay tuned to Macworld Expo Central, before and during the expo. We're sure you won't be disappointed.
