We have a recap of MacWorld, MacPro illegal in Europe?, the next iPhone, and more.
- Leo Laporte ( /Google+)
- Andy Ihnatko ( /Google+)
- Rene Ritchie ( /about.me)
- Leo: Is it a declining conference?
- Jean: Based on the number of Mac vs iOS developers, if it's not just iWorld by next year I'd be surprised.
- Rene: No Omni booth, they had a private event instead.
- Jean: There were a lot of attendees: everyone was busy talking to attendees and press
- Leo: Not just Macworld: internet is obsoleting lots of physical conferences, PC Expo and Comdex are long gone
- Rene: Macworld Live stage and panels were well attended
Rene's Macworld panel: Is Apple giving up on Pro customers?
- Rene: Not giving up on pros so much as enabling less advanced users to do more advanced things
- Leo: Many pros look at the Mac Pro not getting updated, and they're faced with tough decisions about whether to switch to a platform that has up to date hardware and software
- Andy: Apple has an 18 month shot clock to lay out its plan for innovation over the next 5 years. Small iterations on existing products won't be enough.
Best of Macworld/iWorld
