By this time next week, we’ll be up to our eyeballs in Apple product news. Steve Jobs takes the stage at Moscone Center at 9 a.m. Pacific on Tuesday, January 9, and, by the time he wraps up his Macworld Expo keynote at 11:30 or so, we’ll have new hardware and software demanding our attention. For the remainder of our Expo week, much of the energy here at Macworld will be devoted to analyzing, examining, and opining on whatever gadgetry Jobs pulls out of his hat next Tuesday. It’s an exciting—and exhausting—time.
It’s also not a complete picture of the Expo experience. Because while Apple may be the most significantly company on hand for next week’s trade show, it’s still just one company. More than 350 other Mac developers will be on the show floor to display their latest hardware, software, and services.
And we plan on visiting with every last one of them.
With that lofty goal in mind, we’re reviving last year’s Macworld Expo Blog. This is where Macworld editors will check in for the next week or so with reports from the Expo show floor—cool products we’ve seen, developers we’ve talked to, and those “I can’t believe I just saw that” moments that make Macworld Expo the marquee Mac event of the year.
We’ll cover the week-long show in multiple ways, of course. You’ll find regular news updates on our home page. You can expect regular audio reports from the Macworld Podcast and maybe a video podcast or two. This Expo Blog is just another element that we hope will add to our coverage. Our goal is to make you feel as if you’re at Expo, even if you never set foot in the Moscone Center next week.
And for those of you who will be at the show, consider this your invitation to participate. Did you see something memorable on the show floor, take a cool photo, or have some other Expo-related tidbit to share? Drop me a line, and your contribution could find its way into the Expo blog.
