With the economy now going into the tank and the world seeing the new depression, it made me think of the old saw of the title of this post. Actually I think it was Brother, Can you spare a dime, but you get the drift. The other part of the title that is memorable is the idea of the Mac. The world has been buzzing lately about the new Mac notebooks and I myself caught myself paying close attention to the news as it unfolded on Engadget as they live blogged the event as Steve Jobs announced the latest from Apple. The next event for Apple is the Macworld Conference and Expo put on by IDG. IDG describes the event as:
Macworld Conference & Expo is the worldâ€™s most comprehensive Macintosh OS event, showcasing products and services for professionals involved in media and creative content development for corporate and home applications, as well as for consumers using the Mac at home.
The event is scheduled to be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on January 6-9, 2009. They have a large list of exhibitors that will be showing their wares at the show and it will be again competing with the likes of the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas that same time.
Now about that title. Apparently, Apple has made the price of a notebook more affordable by lowering the price to below $1,000. For a dime, or actually quite a few dimes I might be able to buy my own Mac notebook soon!
