Pictures From The Expo Floor

About 180,000 people are expected to visit MacWorld Tokyo 2002. Held in the impressive Tokyo Big Sight International Exhibition Hall, visitors can walk the floor and play with the latest Apple technology (including the new 20 gigabyte iPod, G4 iMacs, and the 23-inch HD flat-panel display), see vendor booths, test out games, meet with MUGs, and try and catch a good price on hardware or software.

Day 1 and Day 2 had visitors milling around after the keynote address, and eagerly trying out the new equipment. Japan is the second largest Apple market in the world, and their enthusiasm for the products was evident in the lines of people waiting to play with a G4 iMac or see a demo of Adobe InDesign 2.0 on the HD flat-panel display.

Being on the floor was fun, and as youill see, even the little kids got in on the action.

A very cool 40i tall Apple banner that we wish we could take home with us.
(If anyone asks, we had NOTHING to do with its disappearance...)
