We’re on the ground at Macworld Expo in San Francisco, waiting for things to kick off Tuesday (so be sure to check our Web site for breaking news from the show!). But before the keynote and ensuing craziness of the show, we have plenty of news to pass along. Apple surprised us last week by announcing new eight-core Mac Pros and Xserves, adding more intrigue to what might be announced tomorrow. Adam looks at the recent news of Amazon MP3 gaining more DRM-free music and wonders if a change at the iTunes Store is in the cards. If you’re coming to San Francisco or travelling in general, be sure to read our coverage of new rules for flying with computer and camera batteries, as well as Glenn Fleishman’s advice for protecting your wireless connections while at the show. We also note the releases of a beta of Parallels Server, NetNewsWire 3.1 (now free!), Interarchy 9, and Airfoil 3, with a peek at Rogue Amoeba’s Live Disc utility for distributing current software versions on CD. Lastly, Macworld Expo isn’t the only big tech event this month: our intrepid correspondent Jeff Porten reports on the latest gizmos, gadgets, and gewgaws from last week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
