Apple press conference (the blue monster goes to Cupertino)

David Pogue, tech writer at New York Times hanging out at Bucks with Patrick

Yeah, you can go over to Engadget or Gizmodo or some Apple-oriented blog (MacSurfer is my favorite because it links to anything that moves in the Apple space).

I’m sure they’ll all do an awesome job of covering tomorrow’s Apple press conference with text, pictures, video, and analysis. It starts at about 10 a.m.

But I’m going to take a different trail. I’m going to use my Kyte.tv channel. I’ll be answering the chat there live. And posting video and audio and other things.

What’s cool about that? Well, you can post videos to my channel! And the live chat there can include audio, text, or video. I’ll be reporting from my Mac and maybe my cell phone (do you think it’d be rude to pull out a Nokia during an Apple press conference? Heh! I guess that’s one way to make the point that the iPhone really needs video capabilities to be considered a great phone).

Oh, and Hugh Macleod will be happy to know that my Mac has a Microsoft blue monster on it. So, the blue monster is going to Apple. Ahh, the fun!

Who is that in the picture above? New York Times tech journalist David Pogue. He wrote a book on the iPhone titled the missing manual.

I wasn’t the one who recognized David to tell the truth. He was having lunch at Bucks when my son recognized him (my son says that Pogue did the best iPhone video). My son is really the one who should go tomorrow. He knows more about Apple than most Apple employees do. He’ll be watching from PodTech’s offices. I’m sure he’ll give us some reactions too.

  1. Good on Patrick for spotting Pogue over lunch. Kid has great radar, to be sure.

    In the “did you know” category — with a “kid blogger” aesthetic — have you taken note of the recent release of the “iPhone the Book” project? Created by a dig:nat named Ethan Bodnar (high school kid, designer, blogger, et al). Shel Israel appears to have added his voice to the project, BTW.

    Imagine he and Patrick would have a few things to bat around conversationally. Heck, you might enjoy the read in between debates about whether to use the Nokia at the Mac press conference (he smiles).

  3. Hey Robert — I _love_ that you engage your son in what you’re doing. LOVE it, man. My daughter is working here in SF, and having worked summers in high school for my Dad, it’s great to really know what your Dad does all that time he’s bringing home the bacon. Awesome.

  5. David Pogue gave one of the most entertaining sessions at this year’s Macworld Expo where he did two great songs about Youtube and music downloading.

  7. Hey Robert,

    I think it’s so cool that your son is interested in what you do. My girlfriend’s sons are both into technology. When I have a question I ask them (they are 10 and 12). I guess I know the difference between a digital native and a digital immigrant.
