Hosted by Mac journalist Jim Heid, the event’s coordinators hope to demystify the new capabilities of Apple’s iLife products. Heid said that it’s all about learning, having fun and meeting other Mac fans.
“We’re unabashed Mac lovers, and we wanted to put together the kind of day that we’d like to attend ourselves,” said Heid.
The first iDay 2003 seminar takes place on Saturday, January 25 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Palo Alto, Calif. gets its chance on Sunday, February 8 at the Hyatt Rickeys. More cities will be announced later.
Registration for iDay 2003 costs US$99. That fee also gets you handout materials and the full version of Econ Technologies’ Portraits & Prints, a photo-printing utility that otherwise costs $20.
What’s more, attendees will have a chance to win prizes in drawings throughout the day, including El Gato’s EyeTV personal video recorder, an HP DeskJet printer, Roxio Toast 5 Titanium, Sonic Desktop Software’s Music Maestro, and the PowerMate USB knob from Griffin Technologies.
Veteran Mac trainer Steve Broback and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Harry Marks join Heid. Sponsors include Peachpit Press, Macworld magazine, HP, Roxio, El Gato Software, Econ Technologies and Griffin Technologies.
