We close the books on our time from the Macworld Expo 2008 show floor with one last* special Expo edition of the Macworld Podcast. Joining me to wrap things up are executive editor Philip Michaels and senior news editor Peter Cohen.

We talk about Apple’s announcements—don’t you have to at Macworld Expo? But Peter and Phil talk about things they saw from other exhibitors as well. And as three long-time Expo attendees, we give our impressions about how this year’s show compares to past Expos.

Show notes

Our Apple-tinged discussion touches on the MacBook Air. Be sure to consult our article offering snappy answers to your MacBook Air questions, which we posted late on Friday.

Phil talks up Bento, FileMaker’s personal database program. We took a first look at Bento when the public preview came out, and a review of the now-final release is forthcoming. Phil also stopped by the Intuit booth, and came away impressed with the preview of the revamped Quicken that will debut next fall.

Peter talks about some of the gaming news out of Expo, including EA’s plans to release Spore on the Mac. As always, you can find Peter’s take on gaming news at our Games topic center.

Here are the detail about Thursday night’s MacBowl charity event, which raised $24,000 for a San Francisco public school.

* Remember how I said this would be “one last” Expo podcast. I lied—we have a few more in the can, but we didn’t want to burden your RSS feed over the long holiday weekend. There will be a few more installments of Expo-themed podcasts, which we’ll roll out next week on a less-expedited schedule.
