Cristian provides info on MacWorld Chile 2002 - April 4th and 5th:


Apple Chile released a newspaper ad (image here), promoting Macworld Chile 2002. One of the demonstrations include (direct translation): Quicktime 6.0, the platform to produce dynamic interactive content. Quicktime Player, TV and Web. How to record DVDs with iDVD and DVD Studio Pro.

Demos: Livestage Pro, Cleaner 5.0, Sorenson, MPEG 4, FinalCut Pro, Quicktime Streaming, Quicktime Broadcaster.


As well, there have been unverified rumors of an April 2 Apple Event.

I posted this in the other thread about MacWorld Chile, but here goes again:

http://www.mpegla.com/mpeg4/news_release28Mar02.html

These two sentences pretty much say everything in terms of where they stand right now:
MPEG LA will meet with the patent holders again in late April, and will provide further guidance to the marketplace as soon as possible following that meeting. Everyone is working with all speed, but because of the challenge posed by the effort to produce a joint licensing program requiring a consensus among at least 18 different patent owners and the yet undetermined future implementations and applications of the emerging MPEG-4 Visual technology, it will take additional time to complete this process.

I think a demo similar to Quicktime Live is more likely for next week.
As for the 2nd...who knows...I'm waiting to see what happens.

As i posted on the other thread, I'll call Apple tomorrow and find out more about the Expo, to find out if the DVD Studio Pro is going to be in Mac OS X.

mac world chile???

if they've got a mw chile, why the hell isn't there a mac world australia already??!! The future of Apple Australia has been discussed before on these forums and a well-promoted MW Australia would really boost apple australia...

i would have thought that apple australia would be a bit more important than apple chile (whos website still reads (C) 2001)

Apple doesn't care about Australia. Not even Apple Australia cares about Australia. You should have realised that by now!

Chile was once a huge market for Apple. They won a project to equip virtually all schools with macs, several years ago. Of course, they lost most of their market share some years ago due to several consecutive mistakes, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be considered. And the fact that the website reads c 2001 surely doesn't make us less important than any other country! I think the fact of making or not Macworlds depends into some extent of the people in charge of Apple in each country.

Normally I would not suggest it BUT, how about a new powerbook? Apple knows that people expect to get new machines in January + July + maybe August/September. However, not at this expo!!! They might want to suprise people + help relieve anticipation for July?? Probably not though.

I think that Apple cannot afford to hold off the Powerbook Rev. C much longer. Otherwise, Apple iBook sales would completely shut down Powerbook sales, because of how close the MHz to MHz ratio is. (I know, the MHz Myth. But even this fast G3 still reuns pretty well with OS X.) If Apple were to come out with a Powerbook update in July, it would probably be to late, and iBooks would become primary.

Still waiting for chrome? Let's see what happens.

Macworld Chile $$$$

First off to King Cobra,
16 years old and riding the bull. Sorry but your wrong the MHZ between ibook & Ti book are not close unless you come from a PC family. The processor is what makes a huge differnence.Check your specs Bull Boy. People with money aren't going to spend $1100 on a 12" ibook when they can afford top of the line Ti book. Get real. You think an Art director is going to pull out his ibook proudly? Doubt It. Mark my words. APP certified.
The only thing that might happen
1. Of Course some blue tooth technology.
2. Price of LCD may go up or down. Earthquake Taiwan!
3. Steve will be wearing a black turtleneck and blue jeans. You go Steve!!

Hey, you guys in Australia make your own Expo! Thats what we did in the UK, Apple cancelled 2 expos in a row. So the mac community got angry and started 'MacExpo' this year will be its 3rd (Its in November)

The first year Apple didn't come but last year they did, and they were interested (we get about 22000 people there)

Check out http://www.macexpo.com/ I will post more l8er

Just wanted to let you guys know that the event at Chile —it's actually called Mac Mundo Chile 2002— it's not a hoax: I talked with a member of the local MUG and he not only confirmed the event but extended some comments about the activity and will send me some photos of the expo and conference as soon as he have some.
You can read all about it —it's in spanish— at the news site http://www.diariox.com.
