At the Expo

Posted by on January 12, 2006

I’m here at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. It is a very exciting event for a Mac lover like myself. I’ve been here since just before 10 a.m. this morning and have had a chance to meet the developers of some of the best pieces of software for the Mac. For instance, one of the hottest applications in the past year is a photo tool called Comic Life which allows you to take photos from iPhoto and create a comic strip with them. I met the guy who developed that. Some of the more interesting displays have actually been from the smaller developers. I met a guy who developed a debugger for DVD Studio Pro, something which I wished had existed a few years back when I was working on some DVD things for NDtv. This debugger isn’t made by Apple or any of the major software developers – it is just some guy who is here with a small booth at the expo.
The creativity that goes into some of the work that software developers do is really amazing. I am glad that I had the chance to come and visit the expo. On top of the brilliant minds that are here, I also had a chance to learn more about the new Intel-based MacBook Pro – Apple’s newest laptop which runs at speeds up to 5 times as fast as their PowerBook G4 machines! The advances in technology are incredible, particularly considering that these huges leaps in technology are coupled with dramatic drops in price. I am thinking it might be time to get a new computer.
Well, I am at a public terminal here at the Expo and there are others waiting for to use the computer (a Mac, of course) so I should let them have their turn.
