You have to hand it to Apple Computer, Inc. With the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in full swing in Las Vegas, Apple still manages to grab the headlines with its own MacWorld Conference & Expo. The site of Steve Jobâs annual keynote speech and a launching pad for new Apple products, MacWorld is sort of a State of the Union address to the Apple faithful. CEO Steve pumps Appleâs recent accomplishments, lays out plans for the immediate future and unveils sleek new gadgets that go on to define consumer electronics for the following year. Or longer. (The iMac debuted at MacWorld way back in 1998.)
Jobs usually has a few surprises up his sleeve as well.
