Macworld 2006 §

Updates in bold added on 1/12/2006 after the show, to indicate if I was right or wrong with my rumour mongering.

Dateline: Monday, January 9, 2006. At approximately 8am, I will set forth upon my annual trek to MacWorld in San Francisco. Here’s what I’m looking forward to see. (Warning, some rumor mongering may follow.)

Rumor Has It

I suggest watching Macrumors.com as the Keynote comes to an end, they’ve always got fairly good round-ups of the rumours before hand, and then a time-coded reference to the SteveNote as it progresses.

TWiT

On Tuesday night, I am signed up to attend the live podcast recording of TWiT, This Week in Tech. I am excited about this, it’s happening after the keynote and I’m looking forward to hearing some of my favorite tech-gurus talk about the day’s annoucnements. Not to mention that The Woz might potentially be there.? (Fingers crossed.)

UPDATE: It appears there is definitely going to be an update to .Mac service during the Keynote. Proof comes in the form of a service “outage warning.” It will be interesting to see what comes from this, here is the actual announcement:

“.Mac will be undergoing scheduled maintenance from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM PST on 1/10/06. All .Mac services will be affected. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
