Ha! You know what would be great? You should yell "GO MACRUMORS" really loud just after all Steve's clapping stops at the beggining - we can all hear you on the webcast!

hehe...I don't want to get myself kicked out though... Not sure if that would get me in trouble or not.

Maybe a "show me the G5" though it wont happen...
:mad:

I've never been to an Expo before so I'm really excited :D

it's a lot of fun. if my job (assuming i get one by then) allows it, i'll be there

paying for keynote or tricking them into thinking you're press or what?

I am going to MWNY, I won't see the keynote though. I will do my best to post pictures while I'm there, and I will have a highlights movie a few days later! As soon as my day orders tickets its high ho MWNY! I will also try to visit the new apple store in SoHo. I will do my best to keep you up to date!

I'm not going to be able to go to, but there's something i've been curious about: are mac expos airport enabled? I mean, do apple put a bunch of atenae in and around the area, so that people with their laptops can connect to the internet whilst at the expo? It'd be a cool feature to have ;) :p

i'm pretty sure they are, at least within a certain area. probably not in the whole massive place...

Was gonna try the press thing but....you have to get a letter from your boss and proof that youre really press (i.e. show work youve done previously)

So Im thinking of dishing out the $$$...there's a student discount so...


anyway, people from here that'll be there should get together...

My dad is filling out the registration today!! I am really looking forward to it! If you want I can pick up posters and send them to people for a nominal fee.(Not sure if I can do this yet)

well I don't think I can make it...

if Geek Fest is going to happen...it's going to fall right before those dates...hence I won't be able to have the funds to go out of town...:(

but if I'm lucky enough...I'll have a hell of a good time...he he he :D

Links to pricing (http://www.macworldexpo.com/macworldexpo/v31/index.cvn?ID=10010&p_navid=5) and discounts (http://www.macworldexpo.com/macworldexpo/v31/index.cvn?ID=10011&p_navid=5).

The cheapest non-discount price which includes the Keynote is $145 -- 2-Day Macworld/Users Conference -- if purchased before June 17.

I got the early bird exhibit hall pass which is $15, can't see the keynote but I will be in at 10:30 sharp when they open for the public! I will get as many pictures as possible and post them as soon as I can. I will have a movie with highlights a few days later.
