Apple Pulls Out of Macworld: Do You Care?

Yesterday some shocking Apple news was announced that had the entire geek-filled blogosphere up in arms; Macworld 2009 would be Apple's very last Macworld. I was seriously stunned when I heard the news, but another Sugar peep summed it up best by saying, "That's like Santa announcing it's his last Christmas." Steve Jobs won't even be delivering the opening keynote this year, it'll be Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, which is going to be very strange, especially if he wears a black mock turtleneck and jeans.

Since Steve Jobs, Apple announcements, and big unveilings have played a huge part in my-past-two Macworld experiences, I can't imagine what Macworld will be like without any shiny and new Apple gadgets and Steve Jobs kicking off the week with a big bang. What are your thoughts? How do you feel about the announcement?

I'm devastated, and as silly as it sounds I felt like someone died when I heard the news yesterday. This is mostly due to it being such a fun trip for our company each year. margokhal- MacWorld is not actually ran by Apple but by a company called IDG. Apple was just the guest of honor at this convention and used the event as an opportunity to make announcements. So the big announcements will still happen regardless of MacWorld. I think you will just see more of those special events where they invite the press to their campus.

I said No, but it is because I never really heard of MacWorld. What I mean, is that I have known about it, but never went to the convention(?) or watched it really so it doesn't affect me.

this really is interesting news . i wonder what the rationale behind it is going to be - and how it will affect sales. i think that one of the benefits to having macworld is that people who aren't as IN TOUCH with the sector and brand learn more and more and drive sales and demand up.

On the one hand, I'm a little sad, because MacWorld is always like watching the finale of a reality show...after all the rumors, the truth FINALLY comes out. And it's exciting. On the other hand, it's possible that maybe Apple's finished with the flashy announcements and rapid changeovers. As much as I love Apple, it's always angered me that if I buy something when the price drops, a week later something NEW comes along with no warning, and my purchase is outdated. If they release things like other companies, maybe the initial demand frenzy won't be as great, allowing them to keep a steady supply. Oooh, maybe prices will come down too???? Nah, that's too much to hope for! :D
