Like the week of the Verizon iPhone, there was one story that was the dominator of the news here, and that story was Macworld Expo 2011. We've got videos, we've got galleries, we've got stories, we've got interviews. We've got it all. And here it all is, just in case...yeah, yeah, you know, just In Case You Missed It.
The idea of anything happening to our Macs or iOS devices sends us into a frenzy. Personally, this editor would rather not ever take her Mac products out of the house, lest they get a few scratches on their chassis or fall to their deaths. Fortunately, for us co-dependent computer and mobile device owners, FastMac's family of Impact Shield impact resistant cases prevent anything awful from happening to your precious gear. In fact, they'll even protect your precious candy-coated M&Ms. Take a look at the video for a demo.
One of the coolest additions to last year’s Macworld Expo was the addition of the Mobile Applications Showcase, a section of the show floor dedicated to iOS developers and their wares, which returns for Macworld 2011.
One category of iOS app that’s really pushing the boundaries of the platform is music, which is making a splash at Macworld 2011. In addition to a number of iOS software and accessory developers on hand to show off their wares, the expo also features a section of the show floor dedicated to iOS and Mac music, the Macworld Music Studio.
In what only could be described as the most intriguing iPad case ever (um, iPad apparel?), this iPad jacket case from Alphyn Industries lets you carry your iPad around in your tummy like a Momma Kangaroo. If you're looking for a place to eat or just want to comfortably watch Inception on the train ride home, just unzip the jacket and tap away.
We're back at Macworld Expo for another day of seeing cool things, meeting cool people, and walking really slowly. Our feet are sore, our iPhones are bulging with new contacts (but AT&T's network is holding up like a champ, it must be said), and our backpacks are sagging with swag and empty water bottles. Join our fun with a spin through some photos taken from the show floor on day 2.
The Expo is also open tomorrow from 10am to 6pm, so if you're in the San Francisco area, stop by and check it out!
Congratulations to the winners of the Mac|Life Awards for 2011! We scoured the floor at Macworld Expo to find the coolest new hardware and software, and unearthed these geeky bits of goodness. Bust out your credit card, because we think you'll want them as much as we do.
Ever go on a trip with your iPhone and iPad and get sort of annoyed that you can't charge both at the same time? Boost Cases solves this problems with an external battery pack that will enable you to charge two mobile phones at the same time.
FrogPad is a portable, one-handed keyboard that's actually pretty simple to use. We got some time to play with one ourselves and we were surprised at how quickly we caught on to a keyboard that wasn't QWERTY. We also took a minute to talk to President & CEO, Linda Marroquin, who gave us a quick run through of the device.
