Well Macworld Expo 2010 is over. Â The fat lady has sung her tune (over iTunes of course). Â How did Macworld do without Apple being there this year?
Well, from what I can tell from associates and write ups on the Internet, it was “ok”. Â It was strange not having a Steve Jobs keynote to awe the masses with new and improved Apple technologies. Â It was odd not having Apple’s presence on the convention floor. Â It was really interesting that the largest vendor at the show was Microsoft. Â And, the biggest announcement at the show was about the update to Office for the Mac. Otherwise, it was all about iPhone applications. Â I wanted to know more about the Macbook line and newer hardware.
Other folks tried to make it work– Kevin Smith and David Pogue, to name a few.
Overall, it was OK. Â It was a good show for the media to see new products and to make new associations. Â For the public, it was an event that just came and went. Â We’ll see what happens next year.
