Those who know me well know that I am a Macintosh user and supporter. I've been using Macintosh computers since 1993 and, like most Mac users, fail to understand why anyone would consciously choose an IBM-compatible or Wintel PC. So, it was with great enthusiasm that I awaited the arrival of Macworld Expo at the Jacob Javits Center in New York in July 1998. I had also invited a longtime online friend and fellow Mac fanatic, Rick O'Leary, from Wauwatosa, WI, to join me and so he did. Rick and I spent Wednesday, July 8, at the Javits Center and I returned to the show with my wife, Carole, on Friday, July 10. It was a wonderful world of the new Apple computer, the iMac. The basic theme that was posted everywhere:


"I think, therefore iMac."


What follows are a series of photos taken at the show on the two days I was there. The Javits Center itself is quite a spectacular site and it was particularly appealing with the myriad of Apple promotional signs, especially those advertising the new iMac which was released for sale in August 1998.
