In a rather interesting development to those who regularly follow MACWORLD Expos, Apple has announced that Steve Jobs will deliver the keynote for the event on Monday January 7. Thatis the day before the Expo officially opens and contrary to every Expo keynote that Steve Jobs has delivered since his return to Apple. From Apple:
Apple and IDG World Expo today announced that Steve Jobs, Appleis CEO, will kick off Macworld Conference & Expo/San Francisco 2002 with the opening keynote presentation on Monday, January 7, 2002 at 9:00 a.m. Macworld will be held at San Franciscois Moscone Center, January 7-11, 2002.
"Weire working hard to make this Januaryis Macworld the most exciting ever," said Steve Jobs, Appleis CEO. "Attendance hit new records at Macworld in July, and weire hoping to break the record this January too."
