I'm down in San Diego this week to do some reporting for a story you'll read in a future issue of Mac|Life, and there's so much to see here that I wanted to share it with you in gallery form. Every year, over 100,000 people flock to sometimes-sunny-but-always-muggy San Diego (I'm sorry, the weather here is a complete contrast to what I'm used to in San Francisco) to gawk at celebrities, spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on collectibles, and meet their inspirations. It's a gathering of the geeks--a mecca, if you will--and though your feet ache by the sixth hour of the second day, somehow it's always worth it.
Whether you like comics, games, fan art or collecting collectibles, Comic-Con's got a range of things to peak anyone's interest. And if you couldn't make it this year, that's fine! We did it for you. Take a quick walkthrough of Comic-Con with the gallery below, and be sure to enter our contest to win your own Incipio Feather case for your iPad 2.
Who needs newspapers when comics are all over the internet? Nowadays, you can find an awesome web comic faster than you can say "Peanuts." The only problem (and it's not much of a problem) is there are really just so many of them. So for the sake of reading web comics at work (and to celebrate Comic-Con this week) we're taking a look at our all-time favorite web comics our little Macs can muster. Don't see your favorite? Let us know in the comments!
You might have heard that this year, Mac|Life's giving away four custom iPad 2 cases from Incipio at our Comic-Con booth. But if you can't make it, don't fret! We're giving away two (2) white Incipio Feather iPad 2 cases to two lucky readers here at the site! All you have to do is leave a comment with your favorite custom iPad 2 art from the gallery after the cut and I'll pick a winner on Tuesday next week! Happy commenting!
Going to San Diego Comic-Con this year? I'll be there, on the show floor, lamenting my broken-down Toms for their lack of arch support and scouring the booths for any cool art, iOS apps and Mac games. Stop by our booth (booth #4445!) for our custom Incipio iPad 2 case giveaway, and a live demo from iPad artist Stephane Kardos. Also, be sure to stay tuned to the site for coverage and our Facebook page to win your very own Incipio Feather for the iPad 2!
