Last week, the curtain came up and revealed a reinvented Macworld. Even the name was new: Macworld | iWorld. From the exhibit hall to the technical sessions to the midway to the evening events, Ted Landau takes a look at all that transpired and finds that it adds up to: success!
Last Friday, The Mac Observer and BackBeat Media threw Cirque du Mac 9.0, the premier Macworld|iWorld party. With a magician, a stilt-walker, a roller skater, face painting, henna tattos, and entertainment by the Macworld All Star Band, we had a great time! This photo gallery from Sphynge Photography offers a great view of the band for those who couldn’t be there.
Throughout last week’s Macworld|iWorld event in San Francisco, there was something that tickling the back of my mind. I wrote a little bit about it on Thursday with an editorial titled, “Day One of Macworld|iWorld: It’s Not CES,” but it didn’t really crystallize for me until the final moments of the show on Saturday.
John F. Braun spent the past few days scouring the expo floor at Macworld|iWorld and one of the many products that caught his eye was the Kudos Power Wireless Charging Power Kit, a system that charges your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S by using wireless induction technology.
The Mac Observer’s Editors Choice Awards from Macworld|iWorld Expo 2012 are out, and just like previous years, there were plenty of great products for us to check out. We chose eight products that we feel represent the best of what was shown at the conference and expo for the Mac, iPhone and iPad.
SAN FRANCISCO - Hub Innovationsw was showing several new products at this year’s Macworld|iWorld show, but the one that caught out eye the most is Anvil, a very cool stand for the iPad. The device holds your iPad in either portrait or landscape mode, and it includes a stabilizer bar if you want to lean your iPad back and type on it.
SAN FRANCISCO - iPad stands are nearly as numerous as iPhone cases, but the PadDock 10 is more than just a stand. In addition to making your iPad look like a smaller version of an iMac, it adds speaker and connector features too.
Two Macworld|iWorld exhibitors offer cases that keep your iDevices dry and usable in the Great Outdoors. And if you’re at the show, you can get discounts that keep your budget from getting all wet too.
Apple notebooks often pull desktop duty, including being plugged into a variety of peripherals. It can be a chore to disconnect all the cables and cords to free the device for the roaming life it was made for. Docks are the solution to this problem, and Henge Docks solves this by including connections to ports as part of the dock, allowing you to take your notebook without unplugging anything.
