I finally made it to Macworld and it's already been an exciting trip. I was in Chicago for the birth of my first grandchild, Noa. Can you tell Grandpa is an iPhone fanatic? Yes, that's a picture of an iPhone on her shirt. The apps are drool, smile, sleep, pee, eat etc. Anyway the night before my trip, I got a call that my flight was cancelled. I rebooked for a 6 AM flight, fought a snowstorm to get to the airport, and finally settled in for my trip to San Francisco. It was an uneventful flight except for a guy sitting next to me with serious intestinal issues. I thought that the oxygen masks were going to come down at one point in the trip.
Today, publisher Hal Goldstein and I will be setting up our booth in preparation for the beginning of Macworld. We'll be handing out thousands of our soon-to-be-on-newsstands latest issue (which, I might add, includes coverage of the iPad...beat that Macworld magazine). I'll be there tweeting and blogging to keep you informed of the latest and greatest apps, gadgets, and news for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. I'm hoping to include pictures, video and, if I get lucky, a live video stream via Ustream. If there's something you'd like me to check out, just leave a comment here.
If you'll be at Macworld, please stop by our booth (#567) and say hi. You'll meet some wonderful people and will be able to participate in some special events we have planned.
