For the past few days, I’ve wanted to sit down and write an entry.. I had the title all ready: “Engadget, CES and disappointment for MacWorld”. I was going to talk about how Engadget had some really great coverage of CES, and I kept reading, over and over, of all these dual core Intel portables.. and I was getting jealous.
I was going to post about how I wasn’t expecting an Intel PowerBook from Apple, as it seemed too fast to make the switch.
Boy.. I was blown away as I read macrumors.com keynote coverage. Shocked. Happy.. in looking at them briefly at the show today, they seemed really fast, and in the same, really nice case as the current ones, but thinner. Really outstanding.
If you are in the bay area now, check out the Chronicle tomorrow.. the staff photographer there took a bunch of pictures of me, there is a small potential I will be in the paper tomorrow.
Go read it, it’s pretty darn good.
I am in San Francisco next week for MacWorld Expo. Besides seeing my coworkers for the first time since June the first few days of the week, I will be working the Intuit Booth all day on Wednesday. Thursday I’ll be hitting the show, and maybe a session or two. Friday it’s see more coworkers, and then flying back to PDX.
Drop by the booth if you want to say hi, and grill me or others about QuickBooks (or Quicken or TurboTax).
Jennifer is also attending MacWorld, for the first time ever. She’s been do the booths before, but she is going to actually attend the sessions this time. Watch her weblog, I’m going to try to make her update it daily with what she does each day.
As for what might get announced next week, I have no idea. I have hopes. I hope Apple switches everything as fast as possible to Intel.
And I want Ted Leung’s wishlist for a new PowerBook. Go read it. And drool.
A good friend up here Steve Riggins had a tree fall onto his home office (He is a Macintosh developer like I). Check out the tv news coverage at his link here.
Crazy wind anyway.
Jennifer and I just finished watching Cold Case, and the episode next week contains a bunch of Springsteen songs. For those of you who have TiVO, like Bruce and like me will be in San Francisco for MacWorld by next Sunday, click here to go to the TiVO website to set up your recording.
