Heading to Macworld Expo 2011 this week? We'd love to get your photos in our official Mac|Life Flickr pool set up just for the event. All you have to do is join the group and then tag it when you upload the photo. We're looking for photos of the Expo, anhy cool products or apps you demoed on the showfloor and any cool parties you might have attended.
To Kyle Wiens, CEO of iFixit, fixing your own stuff is an ecologically correct adventure, a smart and satisfying activity that anyone can do successfully with a little help from his website. The company provides manuals, tutorials, parts and tools, if you need them, plus all the encouragement you could need from a tightly knit DIY community. You make the repairs and, in the classic spirit of geek generosity, you share your experiences and discoveries with other fellow tinkerers.
Kyle will be taking attendees at Macworld Expo on a tour deep inside Apple's gorgeous electronics and Apple product designers' brains during his presentation Friday, January 28th at 9:00 AM. In the meantime, he graciously stopped dissembling things long enough to answer a few questions for us.
With the annual Macworld Expo upon us, iPhone-wielding fans of all things Apple will descend upon our beloved San Francisco. For those of you who’ll be joining us, we’ve put assembled a short list of must-have apps. Load these on your ’Phone or ’Pad and you’ll confidently navigate the City’s many splendors. Might want to load these before you arrive, though. AT&T’s 3G coverage here is less than ideal, and with the VeriPhone still weeks away, you could find your evening slipping away while your downloads trickle in. Oh and one bit of advice: don’t ever ever use the term “Frisco.”
Digital artist Kyle Lambert has become an advocate for finger painting with the iPad. At his Macworld Expo presentation on Thursday, January 27 at 10:30am, Lambert will talk about his art and demonstrate how he utilizes the Mac, iPad and iPhone in his work.
When the Macworld's Mobile Apps Showcase debuted last year, it proved to be one of the most popular draws of the Expo. This year, giving the number of new iOS devices being snatched worldwide, and the consequential surge in iOS application revenue being enjoyed by Apple and developers, it should come as no surprise that this year's Macworld Expo will be playing host to a larger number of iOS developers than ever.

Even though iPhone maker Apple doesn’t take part, Mobile World Congress is the largest mobile device trade show in the world, held annually in Barcelona, Spain. When the next event launches in February, 2011, iOS will get at least some kind of presence thanks to the first-ever Macworld Mobile.
