Photo courtesty of 9to5Mac.com because I was so excited I totally forgot to take one.
Macworld is here! The biggest bestest event for fans of everything Apple kicked off today at Moscone West in San Francisco, with an all-day session on iPhoneography. (Yes, that stands for iPhone photography. Hey, at least they didn't InterCap it! iKid.) Other educational sessions today included eBook Production with Adobe InDesign, iOS Development for Beginners, and Apple Deployment In-Depth. If you're interested in the other sessions and speakers taking place throughout the weekend, be sure to download the official Macworld/iWorld app, or visit macworldiworld.com.
The show floor doesn't open until Thursday morning, but a a handful of highly intriguing products were shown in the "Innovation Showcase" in the cavernous lobby to nosy media types like me. Check out the gallery below for highlights of what I saw today.
And if you're in the Bay Area, get stoked for the rest of the show! Thursday morning Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad are giving a talk bright and early (9am!) on what it was like to play Steves Jobs and Wozniak in the upcoming movie jOBS, which just played at Sundance. Friday, SNL and Portlandia's sublime Fred Armisen will dish on how Apple's tech lets him do, well, everything he does. And also on Thursday, will.i.am will discuss the next wave of technology with Intel futurist Brian David Johnson.
Tons of cool companies will be in attendance in the Expo Hall, which is open from Thursday through Saturday, 10am to 5pm (4pm on Saturday). Unlike a big trade show like CES or E3, Macworld is open to the public, and most of the companies sell products directly from their booths.
I'll be around all day Thursday and Friday, so if you see me, say hi! Fair warning, I have a cold, so I'm fist-bumping instead of hand-shaking. Just for kicks, I was using Bean to count how many fist-bumps I gave in lieu of hand-shakes, but I stopped counting after I knocked out 27 in the first couple of hours. Friendly bunch, this Macworld/iWorld community. Come on down!
