Steve Jobs to Keynote Macworld Tokyo 2002

TOKYO – MARCH 4, 2002 – IDG today announced that Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, will deliver the opening keynote address at Macworld Tokyo 2002, the largest Macintosh event in Japan. This year's Macworld Tokyo will take place at Tokyo Big Sight March 21-23, 2002, and the keynote is scheduled for Thursday, March 21 at 9:30 a.m.


Macworld Tokyo will build on the great success of Macworld San Francisco, which was held in January 2002 and attracted the most attendees ever to that venue. At Macworld San Francisco, Apple unveiled the stunning new iMac, featuring a 15-inch LCD flat screen that appears to float in mid-air, allowing users to effortlessly adjust its height or angle with just a touch, and iPhoto, new software that makes it incredibly easy to save, organize and share digital photos.

As the center of Apple’s Digital Hub strategy, the new iMac enables users to turn their computer into a hub for creating, editing, storing and sharing digital photos, movies and music with family and friends. Combined with Apple’s own award-winning iTunes 2, iMovie 2, iDVD 2 and the new iPhoto, the new iMac is the ultimate computer for today’s digital lifestyle. Whether it’s ripping CDs, playing or burning CDs and DVDs, or sending digital photos via the Internet, everything is easier with a Mac.

Now in its 12th year, Macworld Tokyo is the only comprehensive event for Macintosh users and creators in Japan and features:

more than 60 conference sessions covering design & publishing, digital video, music & audio, streaming, developer tools and more;

special lectures by third party software developers such as Adobe Systems Incorporated and Macromedia, Inc., and;

special user group sessions.
