MacWorld a bad UX- 01.15.08
Wow. So for those of you, who like me stayed at home and watched the macworld keynote and madness unfold across the internet through the eyes and ears of the crazy kids at Gizmodo and Engadget with their live blogging of the keynote, etc… here’s a peek at what its like to REALLY be there ~ not as press, just as regular people trying to partake in the mac madness. So dan actually decided to go to the keynote this year (for “fun”), went and spent ages in line yesterday to get his pass, and then got in line at 6:30am this morning (and as you know from our sites, we aren’t morning people, unless it’s because i’m not sleeping till 6am) in the 40 degree weather… and didn’t even make it into the keynote. But that aside, the madness continued as all those turned away tried to make a mad rush for food and warmth after only found themselves in MORE freezing lines, like a half hour just to get into Mel’s diner (which is most certainly not really worth waiting in line for at any other given time)… Seems like apple needs to take care of its fans a bit more? Get a bigger venue? Be more realistic earlier on about who will get in? So although he didn’t get any pics while in the freeeeeezing cold this morning, he did just send over a few quick pics of the rush and sea of mac fanboys running around… let’s just say i’m glad to be home right now, and if he ever tries to do this again, and you guys want us to cover it, maybe i’ll apply for a press pass? More pictures of the sea of humanity after the jump!
