Why waste money for the ticket and travel when you can get all the details over the internet, and then visit a company's website for more info? Now with Apple Stores pretty much everywhere, you can go see the product in person without having to pay for a trade show.

    There are thousands of products - the Apple Store usually only carries a small handful. Plus what about all the software packages? Especially iPhone software. Its nice to be able to go to the vendor's kiosk (#1438) or booth and try it out.

    OMG, how dare we have an opinion that is different than yours. The original 13 and all the rest east of LA bow our heads in reverence to your most splendid minds.
