    Those are the power bricks for the Apple Cinema Displays... As you can see the two DVI cables are coming from the video card, thus two power bricks...



    There is only one cable coming from the display which carries the video signal, power, and firewire 400/usb ports.

    Power bricks for MacMinis? Other than that...iDunno. \



    The legendary Asteroid, perhaps?

    The FW/USB extension cables for the monitors don't appear to be in use, they look like they are tied off behind the desk, the cables connected to the Mac Pro are either the wrong color or the wrong shape. The demo stations do look to be very connected, 2x fiberchannel connections and 2x gigE connections, several SDI. Basically, every station had two monitors, and a fairly large widescreen Panasonic HDTV connected to it. I don't know why there were so many Xserves in the racks other than to just show them off, there were more Xserve servers than there were demo stations.

    What are the rules about taking photos here? Is it because they are private premises that a company can forbid photography?



    I remember when the iPod shuffle was due to be announced. Inadvertently some promotional displays became visible through a window and a few fans rapidly started to snap pictures with their cellphones.



    An Apple security guard actually grabbed the arm of one of them to stop them. Since they were on public premises, I believe the word "lawsuit" was mentioned...

    Yeah, a security guard being out of line is almost a possible liability. I don't know where taking photos of a store display in a publicly accessible area, by itself, would be a legal problem.



    It looks like many of those shots were taken during set-up where attendees are not allowed in, but I don't know if that makes it any more of a legit reason they might try to "shut you down" or not. They might be able to chase people out of the booth, but that's about it.

    Great photos man!

    Can I ask you a favor? Can you send me the original of the last photo from the 1st page?

    It's me in blue shirt and Plantronics headset



    Also, it was a hell of a conference and the booth was beatiful. Avid booth was great also and I loved the Avid on Mac

    I dig the lounge thing. Whoever pushed that through should be commended. Same with that server setup.



    How did Apple organize the MacBook Pro loaners? 1-request per person? For how long?



    Wish I could've stayed in Las Vegas longer for the show.

    Hehe... that was my thought, too. Once I scrolled past that picture, the other pictures and the news itself couldn't hold my interest anymore. Great chairs. Would die to have one at my house. Mies van der Rohe is a genius. Way too expensive, though, for a mere mortal like myself.

    A chair...that costs about 2X a MacPro? I guess there are people with money to burn...

    It's actually about the price as Apple's previous top-tier MacPro (3GHz Quad/2GB/ATI).



    A Mac Pro has a much shorter useful life though, so it's hard to compare. Some exotic chair might have 10x the useful life of any computer.



    They are nice chairs, but even with my above statement, I don't think it's necessarily worthwhile.

    I've finally managed to upload photos of Apple's booth, I tried to catch each demo station group. The photos didn't turn out as well as I thought they would, but they are still pretty servicible.
