Apple announces final MacWorld

http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/technology/archives/images/jobs_christ.jpg
It's the end of an era. Apple has just issued a press release stating that this coming MacWorld in January
will be its last, and Steve Jobs won't be on hand to say goodbye. Instead, Apple's senior VP of Worldwide
Product Marketing, Phil Schiller will be heading up the proceedings, thus marking a quiet end to a conference
that's been the launching point of some of the most important pieces of consumer tech in recent memory.
Some are saying Jobs won't be there because of health issues...again with the stupid health crap.

Is this really a surprise to anyone? Conventions and Conferences have been falling of the map
COMDEX, CES, i can't think of another one Apple says that the reason it's pulling out is because trade shows are becoming less and less of a focus for the company as it reaches more customers directly every day.

So what's in store for the future of the Macworld Conference & Expo, sans Apple? It'll go on for at least one
more year, it seems. "We're committed to serving [the Mac community's] interests at Moscone Center
January 4-8, 2010," said IDG vice president and general manager of Macworld Expo Paul Kent.

Student uses controller to find stolen Xbox 360
A Missouri State student had his Xbox 360 stolen from his dorm but the theif didn't get far. The controller, which has a range of 30 feet, still activated the system when turned on. By moving through the various floors of his dorm using the controller as a sort of divining rod the student was able to find his system. The thief had formatted the drive by that time but I can think of a thing or two that I would do to get back at a console thief in this situation. kotaku

Churches can track baby Jesus statutes



*photo from gizmodo*
GLEN ELLYN, Ill. - It's that time of year again. Statues of Baby Jesus often go missing from
Nativity scenes during the holiday season. But this year some churches are fighting back
with GPS technology. The Rev. George Smith of St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Glen Ellyn
says GPS is a fun way of tracking the statue if it's ever stolen.
The devices are offered by a New York-based company that lends the hardware and
tracking service for free to churches and synagogues.

Just because that Iraqi Moron threw his shoe at ol' bushy and missed doesn't mean you have too.
Shock and Awe's browser game allows you to finish what that Iraqi couldn't. Plus it just makes you
feel good.

Police: pizza man's cheesy weaponfoils a stickup
http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g170/tk3186/chuck-e-cheese.jpg

MIRAMAR, Fla. (AP) -- Police say a pizza delivery man fought back with the one weapon he had

handy when a gun was pulled on him in a stickup: A large, hot pepperoni pizza.

Delivery man Eric Lopez Devictoria, 40, flung the steaming pie at the gunman,

buying time as he ran for safety, police said. At least one shot was fired as Devictoria

fled, but the deliveryman wasn't hurt and was able to quickly call police, according to authorities.

Three teenage suspects were nabbed soon after Wednesday's run-in with the cheesy weapon,

police said, adding they were charged with armed robbery.
