Expo Show Floor Grab Bag

The exhibitor halls at Macworld Expo are full of cool things to see from Apple and other companies, like Canon, HP, LaCie, Microsoft, and more. But Macworld Expo isn't like any other computer trade show--instead of business suit-types crowding the halls talking, well, business, the show is filled with everyday users. That gives the show a special vibe and there are a lot of neat and quirky things to see.

In this Macworld Video, follow Macworld Lab Director Jim Galbraith as he makes the rounds of the show floor. He doesn't make the usual stops at the big vendor booths. Instead, he finds a few products that aren't what you might expect from a typical trade show--but are what make Macworld Expo unique.

Bunny ears were everywhere at Expo. It was part of a promotion by Peachpit. MacUser's Scott McNulty had some thoughts about such promotions.

The "most comfortable chair at Macworld" was in the booth of Etymotic Research, makers of high-fidelity earphones. The chair was used to test the noise-isolating ability of earphones like Etymotic's new hf5.

And yes, that was Woz. He gave regular presentations at the Axiotron booth. In the video, he was discussing a number puzzle. He was not calling out bingo numbers. And he did not have his Segway.
