IDG World Expo announced on Tuesday that some 25,000 people attended Macworld | iWorld 2012. The firm said that 40 percent of those attendees were new to Macworld | iWorld, which used to be called Macworld Conference & Expo. Speaking of the conference side of the show, IDG also said that conference attendance, which is now called “Tech Talks,” rose by an impressive 145 percent.
Nancy Carroll Gravley takes a look at some of the iPhone 4/4s cases that were on display at Macworld | iWorld. They vary from the minimilist to the exotic.
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.
