I opted not to do the CES thing this year. Instead, I’m going to attend my first Macworld Expo next week in San Francisco, California. I’m really looking forward to it! I leave Saturday and come back Thursday. My plan is to try to get the show done in a day or so and use the rest of the time to check out SF.
I also plan to pack as gear-light as possible. I’m trying to convince myself to take my brand new ASUS EEE PC instead of my macbook pro. It will cut down on the weight of my carry-on bag and also give me the perfect opportunity to use and review it. My next decision is which smartphone do I take with me? Treo 680? iPhone, Pantech Duo, Nokia E61i? I don’t think it will be the latter two. For one thing, the Pantech Duo isn’t mine. It’s a loaner. It also has really sucky audio quality (sorry Pantech). The Nokia is great in the audio and signal department, but I’m finding that no matter how much I try, I don’t really like it all that well… So it’s down to the iPhone or the Treo. Hmmmm… decisions, decisions!
Anyone out there have any ideas for things to do and see while I’m in SF? We’re already planning a trip to Muir Woods and Alcatraz, but I’m sure there are tons of things to see and do that I’ve not even thought of yet.
