MacUser: the Mac fair in the UK will be there
Even MacUser UK d, good last, the announcement that a totally independent Mac fair in preparation in England. The English newspaper, giving indications on the review, does not dissolve for the doubts advanced in recent days by some readers of Macity, including one of the managers of the Macintosh User Grup of London, on the progress of the project. The organizers, AppleOnLine, which as the newspaper itself admits, have no experience in organizing such initiatives, are known in England to have operated in the sector to date Internet connectivity. After an initial enthusiasm the main AppleOnLine manager Farhad Alaadin admits that "it is an arduous task" but also that his company "seriously intends to carry out the initiative". This is why the principal organizer of the deceased Apple Expo, Bob Denton, would have been recruited. "I think they contacted me – says Denton – because they have no experience in this area and I said that I am available because third parties need it , of retailers and users, of an event of this type. ”The retailers seem to be the most cautious in totally embracing the cause of a review of this type. Above all, the chosen date is perplexing, no more than ten days after the one in Paris. "It is too much in l. If it had been a couple of days before we could have hoped for a massive presence of American producers coming from France to England. But in our opinion the first thing that is well organized ".Gi. The point seems to be this. Can an ISP organize an initiative as complex as an Apple product review without Apple's support? Above all, will it be possible to assemble and then dismantle a review like the one booked in a single night? Both the time that would be available to the fitters, according to our friends who have consulted those responsible for the exhibition space. The day before and the next day, in fact, they would have already been booked, and for some time, by other events. If confirmed this news denotes, at least, that one of the conditions set by the third parties, "a well organized review", may not have been respected.
