Another Macworld Expo is in the books, and although the MacBook Air, Apple TV, and Time Capsule grabbed most of the attention early on, plenty of other noteworthy products and companies were featured. Our annual Macworld Expo Superlatives article points you to those things our editors found most intriguing. Also from Macworld, Karen Anderson reports on the variety of laptop cases on display, proving that your snazzy new MacBook Air doesn’t need to be strapped into a boring synthetic leather attache. In other Apple news, the company reported its best-ever quarterly financial results ($1.58 billion in profit sounds good to us), which of course tossed the stock price into the rubbish bin; Apple also announced a pink iPod nano – clearly a plea by Greg Joswiak to garner some Valentine’s Day affection.
