Macworld Expo iPad event

So, Apple essentially flipped-off IDG, insulted their mother and kicked their dog by pulling out of Macworld Expo and then announcing their biggest product since the iPhone two weeks before the largest Apple event of the year is set to start. In retaliation, IDG has chosen to turn the other cheek (not that they have any other choice) by embracing the iPad and announcing an exclusive preview of the product.

The iPad preview will be held on Saturday, February 13 at 1:00pm at the Moscone Center. Jason Snell, vice president and editorial director at Macworld, and a panel of industry insiders will explore the features, functionality and provide insight into the iPad.

“Apple’s new iPad represents another watershed event for the tech marketplace, and Macworld 2010 will be the first and best place where end users can learn how the product works and whether it’s a buy now or wait decision,” said Paul Kent, vice president and general manager for Macworld 2010. “Our special event will help demystify the just-announced iPad and give users an in-depth look into the future of this product and what it might mean to them on a personal and practical level.”

Because whereas Apple is seemingly content to show their product only to tech analysts and media reporters who continue to whine about things like lack of built-in 3G and the omission of front/back cameras, IDG understands the importance of showing products to fanboys who continue to whine about things like lack of built-in 3G and the omission of front/back cameras.

Those attending the event will get the chance to win an Apple iPad when the product is available to ship, but IDG has offered no other contest rules at this time.

    Being a school bus driver and a trainer an Ipad would be a fantastic asset to my career with its versatile abilities. I could schedule employees and research laws an information involved in transportation of students. Keep up to date with the latest news in music an other interest that I could use to better socialize with students, not to mention my own mental wellness did I mention I’m a school bus driver ?
