Greetings from Macworld: Day 1 Review

Hello Everyone. As always, I had less time then I thought to do a detailed post. Expect that later today. I did about 75% of the show on Thursday and arrived home dead tired after a great meal at a local restaurant.

Here are my photos so far. Why is it version 5.?. Well, it's my fifth Macworld and it's day one.

Brian's been blogging quite a bit about Macworld: Check out his thoughts as well.

I'm writing this from the Media Center at the show, starting day 2. In general, I was unimpressed with the show so far. The fact I was able to see most everything in about six hours is evidence there wasn't anything to write home about, figuratively and literally. I'll reserve final judgement until I finish the show. My initial thoughts is "evolutionary" not "revolutionary". I have a term for stuff like this: "with sprinkles". It refers to that episode of the Simpsons in which Homer gets enticed to eat donuts because it now has sprinkles. Most of the items I saw added a few bells and whistles and called it a new product. Many vendors said "Now we are compatible with Leopard" or "Now for iPhone". Yawn. We kind of except that, it's been out for a while.

More later!
