Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get a three-day general-admission ticket (a $25 value).

This year's Macworld runs January 27–29 at the Moscone Center. Macworld is one of the year's premier technology events, spanning three days of innovative, consumer-ready, new technology revealed with jubilant pizzazz. The company that makes machines that Ben Franklin would have filled with low-bitrate music has been preparing to present its newest line of computer products, laptop upgrades, new species of iPhones, and much more. From January 27 through 29, the general-admission expo ticket will grant you three-day entry to the frenzy of excitement and parade of new wares on the floor level, whereas the one-day Users Conference admission opens up a larger sphere of information for the true techies in the crowd. Learn how to be a savvier Mac operator and witness in-depth tutorials about how to incorporate Macs into the office and use your music, picture, and video programs to their fullest. Or witness the future of computers in the classroom as new technological achievements such as iSosceles Triangles and iBullies aid in the education of younger generations.
See the forthcoming waves of new metallic toys before anyone else, and immediately blog about the future from your mobile device. Today's Groupon lets you ride above the wave of Mac-heads who will flood the yearly conference like so many megabytes of illegally downloaded movies.
Although there aren't many reviews online, Pervasive caught Macworld 2009:
- Macworld was very cool…There’s something about being part of an event where so many (think 10’s of thousands) true fans of a company and its products get together for a giant check-out-this-new-feature, new product, new color, new sound love fest. You just can’t not get fired up by that. – Zippy the Answerdog
Each year, thousands of fans of Apple products power down their MacBooks to attend the Macworld/iWorld expo, an event dedicated to using, appreciating, and admiring Apple products and their surrounding culture. The expo features main events such as a hall buzzing with more than 250 exhibitors, including iOS and OS X developers sharing their latest projects and magical spells. Every attendee can also view their array of tech displays such as an iPad-sketch station and an iPhone-photography gallery. The expo has two live stages housing musical performances, podcasts and demos. Visitors can also create their own games such as bobbing for iPods, or attend special events, which have included a concert by Little Feat and an iPhone film festival.
