Free SuperMeet sessions prior to event
After being forced to shut down an eBay auction page MIC Gadgets has begun selling a Steve Jobs figurine through its online web store, while a host of pre-SuperMeet workshops have been announced for San Francisco
MIC Gadget has once again started selling a Steve Jobs figurine online. The company originally started offering the figurine late last year through eBay, but was forced to remove the auction page at Apple's request. The figurine depicts Jobs in his characteristic black turtle neck and blue jeans. Included with the figurine are three interchangeable arms, one holding a black iPhone, another a white iPhone, and the third holding ninja stars. A ninja headdress is also included. The Steve Jobs figurine is being sold through the company's website at a cost of $90 plus shipping.
Free workshops scheduled prior to SuperMeet
The Tenth Annual San Francisco SuperMeet is set to take place on January 28th at the UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center in San Francisco. Tickets for the event can be purchased online for $15, or $10 for students. Free sessions will also be offered before the SuperMeet. Workshops have been arranged by Canon, Adobe, Avid, and Blackmagic Design, covering topics such as using DSLRs for moving images, HDSLR filmmaking, using DaVinci Resolve detailing features, and more. These workshops will end at 4pm, following which the doors to the SuperMeet Digital Showcase will open. Space for each of the free sessions is limited so attendees are encouraged to register online as soon as possible.
