After the disappointment surrounding the non-appearance of anything radically different at the recent Macworld show in New York, Apple isn’t taking any chances with user’s hopes for the forthcoming Apple Expo in Paris on September 26-30. The company has announced that Steve Jobs’ keynote will focus only on already announced software tools that will be released around that time.
“My keynote will focus on Mac OS X v10.1 and our new iDVD 2 software,” said Steve Jobs, quoted in an Apple press release. “This has been an incredible new product year for Apple, so we don’t plan to launch any new hardware products in Paris this year.”
Apple Expo 2001 will be held at the Paris Expo in Porte de Versailles. It’s the central event for Apple in Europe. Last year it was the only event that Apple had a stand at in Europe, though this year it has confirmed that it will be showing at the Mac Expo show at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London on November 22-24 – the first time in the UK since 1997.
