The Macworld Podcast hits the road this week, visiting a two trade shows of interest to different segments of Mac users. Or at least, our guests on this episode did.
We’re joined by senior features editor Kelly Turner, who spent last week at the
in Las Vegas—think of it as sort of a Macworld Expo for the digital photography crowd. Kelly interviewed
founder Greg Lowe about the bag-maker’s 40th anniversary and its new Primus AW all-weather camera backup. Then, Kelly talks to Macworld.com executive editor Philip Michaels about some of the highlights from PMA.
We’re also joined by senior editor and
Game Room columnist
Peter Cohen, who spent last week at the
Game Developers Conference
in San Francisco. While not a traditional hotbed for Mac news, the GDC did produces some tidbits that should be of interest to Mac gamers; Peter gives us a full report.
