Jason Chen: It's cold, it's almost raining. It's San Francisco. We're here outside Moscone, waiting to go in and see Phil Schiller do his best Steve Jobs imperso ation.
7:57 AM ON JAN 6 2009
Jason Chen: All the old familar media faces are here (or are on their way). The line isn't any shorter than usual, despite the non-Jobsness of the event. Maybe that spectacle plus the fact that this is the last year is bringin out the lookeeloos?

Jason Chen: In other news, MFing danishes!
8:00 AM ON JAN 6 2009
Jason Chen: To give you an idea of what it's like to wait in line at one of these things, picture Best Buy. Then add in Black Friday. Then, imagine it's these people's JOBS to get in as early as possible. Mix in some fear, sweat, jetlag and desperation. Stir.
8:04 AM ON JAN 6 2009
Jason Chen: Fifty five minutos left. That means fifty five minutes left for a pee break.

8:20 AM ON JAN 6 2009
I see a 15 year old looking kid with a gigantic camera weighing him down. Watch out kid, sculiosis is a bitch.
8:25 AM ON JAN 6 2009
Jason Chen: Some of you are just getting to work now. You lucky bastards.
8:30 AM ON JAN 6 2009
Jason Chen: I wonder if Phil has different musical taste than Steve. No more Coldplay? Jack Johnson? JOHN MAYER???
8:31 AM ON JAN 6 2009
Jason Chen: If this is your first Macworld with us, here's the deal. Post your three guesses of what you think will be announced over on the main Giz page.
