Hey Lockergnome~ I have another questions, as is the pint of this site. Anyway, I will be going to MacWorld in two weeks, and I would like to know how I can review some products while there. This is my first time going to a big trade show such as this, and I write for a tech blog (, and I would like to cover some of the products. What do I do to get some time with these new and awesome products? Do i just walk up with a camera and say "Can I review this?", or do I have to talk to the vendors in advance? Help me!

Just ask "Can I record this?", usually they will allow it..

I would just allow them to demonstrate the product. And most of the products there are usually already out, so don't really expect something new.

Also, another tip. If they are going to use the moscone west, most of the convention is on the first floor. And I find it simpler to park out of downtown and take their regional city transit (called Muni). And it is called iWorld.

iWorld/MacWorld, same thing. So let me get this straight. I just walk up, and say "Can you demonstrate this for me, and can I film it?"

You can go and let them demonstrate it to you and then ask to record it or record it at the beginning. Most of the people there don't mind
