From MacForce:

Massive annual vendor expo with free food, seminars, and incredible giveaways

Portland, Ore.– MacForce Summer Blast 2008, the 5th annual NW Macintosh event of the year, lands in Portland on Saturday, August 16.  This event boasts a coming together of like-minds to explore all things “Macintosh,” preview new products, share stories and ideas, learn, experience and play.  For the love of Mac, this is the “can’t be missed” event of the summer.

From 10:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m., attendees will be dazzled by more than 20 vendor booths—including such big names in progressive technology as Apple, Adobe and M-Audio—while enjoying free BBQ hot off the grill, as well as frosty drinks and ice cream. Attend free seminars hosted by Adobe and M-Audio, and get the opportunity to win prizes and giveaways worth thousands. MacForce will also offer exclusive deals on Apple products and accessories, and much more.

Confirmed exhibitors include Apple, Adobe, M-Audio, Wacom, Equinux, Quark, FileMaker, Timbuk2, SmileOnMyMac, Stream Audio/Video, Extensis, LaCie, Softpress, Engrave, XtremeMac, Urban Pages, Audio Cinema, NW Documentary and many more.

“MacForce Summer Blast is a highly anticipated event,” said Shane Spiess, CEO of MacForce.  “Last year we had over 1,000 attendees. With new products to preview and the free seminars, our customers ask about this event by name.  And this year, we’re thrilled to have such exciting vendor participation—surpassing what we had last year, not to mention an amazing amount of prizes and giveaways—so I’m sure this will be our best Summer Blast yet.”

Oct 26: Oh No! Just got this notice from Macforce–Steve Jobs and Leopard own YOU

Well, I just bought my Mac, so I guess I missed this by a brief second. Thanks, Steve, my overlord :)
The world premiere of Leopard, the biggest upgrade to Mac OS X, is October 26.

Leopard arrives Friday, October 26.
The world premiere of Leopard, the biggest upgrade to Mac OS X, is October 26. And on that big day, the Apple Retail Store is the place to be. Join us from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and be the first to experience the world’s most advanced operating system. And if you’re one of the first 500 guests, you’ll go home with a special edition Leopard T-shirt. See you there.

Besides the Apple Store in Pioneer Place Mall, there is the Macforce–which is where I bought my Macbook.

Steve Jobs Just Commanded Me To Post This: 300 Page Iphone Bill

Actually, I just wanted to remind you that the Macforce Party is tomorrow (August 18: Aint No Party Like a Macforce Party…Win an iPhone) and you might win an iPhone!

Check out this video from Amanda (I love you!) at Tasty Blog Snack


“I finally got my first bill from AT&T in a cardboard box containing 300 pages of it. Apparently, they give you a detailed transaction of every text message sent and received. Completely unnecessary.”

*Macabulary is commanded to be used at least once a week by Mr. Jobs.

August 18: Aint No Party Like a Macforce Party…Win an iPhone

Aint No Party Like a Macforce Party, ‘Cuz a Macforce Party Don’t Stop Stops at 4PM

So that I am able to appease Steve Jobs, the Fake Steve Jobs, Digital Dave, and the Apple gods; I am posting another Macintosh/Apple post this week.

According to the flyer, it is “Portland’s Biggest Macintosh Expo“, and there are “giveaways worth thousands” including the iPhone  grand prize (that’s almost $700 right there).

Oh yeah, FREE BBQ and drinks (beer?) and activities for da kids.

IPhone PDX Pipeline

Hopefully, I can learn how to have less Maccidents at work by attending (Macabulary is Mactastic/Mactacular™).
