This is going to be a big week at Macworld New York. No, I don’t know what Apple CEO Steve Jobs is going to announce at tomorrow’s keynote, but just the sheer number of Mac OS X related announcements will make for an exciting week.
The MacCentral gang is ensconced at the Roosevelt Hotel at 45th Street and Madison Avenue. It’s okay, though I would love to be in my favorite Big Apple hotel, the Marriott Marquis. MacCentral put me up there to cover my first MWNY so it has sentimental value for me.
Now that I have shed the couple of pounds I put on in Chicago at the NECC conference, I’ve started eating my way through the Big Apple.
Today I had lunch with John Piekarski, editor-in-chief of AirMedia.com. We ate at the mezze, an Indian restaurant at 10 East 44th Street. I had Moroccan spiced carrots, cumin, olives, pinenuts, hummus, and grilled flatbread from the salad bar. It was enjoyable, as was the conversation with John. We talked about the state of Mac support on Internet sports sites. But more on that at a later date.
After a day of pre-MWNY interviews and planning expo coverage strategy with my compadres, Jim Dalrymple and Peter Cohen, I bought some excellent calzone from Cielo and did something I rarely do. Just sat back and enjoyed some food while I channel surfed.
But there’ll be no more of that. For the next four days, it’s pedal to the metal all the way.
