January 29, 2005
A review of Macworld San Francisco 2005 will be the order of the day on January 29, 2005. Expect to hear interesting details about the new Mac mini, iWork, iLife '05, the iPod shuffle, and dozens of other new and revised things you can't live without. Expect to be wowed, thrilled, and worried about adjusting your desires to the contents of your piggy bank. Expect Microsoft to announce additional delays for Longhorn. Expect to stay wide awake, even if it is a Saturday morning. Expect at least one Apple representative to be on hand.
Coming up: February 26, 2005, will travel from the very commercial universe of Macworld to the very non-commercial realm of open source software as we delve into the Joys of Open Source Software. Consider this the second half of a double-header that started in January.
For the larger "end of meeting" drawing prizes: you must confirm your Pi membership if you win (bring your membership card).
