Jobs MWSF keynote

IDG announced today that Apple CEO Steve Jobs will deliver the Macworld keynote address on Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 9:00 a.m. will be held at San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center January 9-13, 2006. IDG recently cancelled its sumer Macworld Expo in favor of focusing on the January event. Last year's Macworld in San Francisco had sizable growth from the previous year with an 11% overall attendance increase. There was also a 13% increase in the number of paid conference delegates; a 10% increase in the number of exhibitors; and a 31% increase in the average number of hours spent on the exhibit hall floor by attendees. "Steve's keynote is always a great way to kick off the biggest Mac event of the year," said David Korse, CEO of IDG World Expo. "We've added several new features to this year's event, and we're working hard to make this the most entertaining and informative Macworld ever."

    In other news...

    ...it turns out that the new year officially starts January 1st this year. Also, it appears that Cinemax will continue playing R-rated movies featuring bad actors and gratuitous nudity. Larry Jingleheimer from Hoboken, NJ said "I'm stunned! I mean - I really didn't see any of this coming!" when asked by our staff reporter. "What's next? Are the Detroit Lions going to not make it to the playoffs again?" Only time will tell what stunning events will catch us so completely off guard...

    If rumors hold true, I might bite on a new PB if one gets introduced at the keynote. My 3 and a half year old PB is really having a hard time keeping pace... much like the current Detoit Lions' QB.

    What!!!!

    Cinemax shows R-Rated movies with gratuitous nudity? I'm stunned by this! Next thing you'll be telling me is that Steve Jobs will be hosting MacWorld Expo in San Francisco!

    Of course, I'm more shocked that not one of the many sarcasm-lacking MacNN crowd wrote a post claiming that this wasn't surprising, since he always does the keynote. And that everyone knows bad actors + nudity make for great entertainment.

    But the Lions are still in the playoff hunt! Don't count them out yet!....OK, you can count them out now.
