ThinkSecret provides an update to the MacWorld Boston IDG-Apple showdown. In mid 2002, reports began emerging that IDG was considering moving the summer MacWorld back to Boston from New York City, citing rising costs. The move was met with resistance from Apple, who announced they would not be attending the Boston expo. The ThinkSecret report indicates things have not changed much in either side's position... and without Apple's presence, there IDG appears to be facing significant hurdles in recruiting vendors to exhibit at the Expo. According to the site, Apple may further revamp the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a more of a consumer focus -- possibly providing live web coverage for the developer's conference which is scheduled in late July.
