Jordan Golson and I blogged live, but briefly, via Twitter from the Macworld 2008 expo at Moscone West in San Francisco. Read on for the full report:

  • Newman wraps up with a crowd-pleaser from "Toy Story." Thanks Jobs that's over. 16 January 2007
  • Newman delivers an anticorporate rant. "But not this one," he says, meaning Apple. Thanks for clarifying! 16 January 2007
  • No "one more thing"? Apparently not. Randy Newman, who has scored films for Pixar, takes the stage to perform some songs. 16 January 2007
  • Still no financials? Jobs usually drops some hints on how Apple is doing as a business in his keynote. 16 January 2007
  • MacBook Air ad plays. Lyrics allude to rumor mill: "hoping I could learn what's true and fake." 16 January 2007
  • No optical CD/DVD drive in MacBook Air. Jobs makes pitch for discless computer: iTunes movie rentals, iPods instead of burning CDs, etc. 16 January 2007
  • Otellini and Jobs looked like they were going to make out. Hotter than a Core 2 Duo chip on stage! 16 January 2007
  • Intel created custom chip packaging — the wiring around the processor —for MacBook Air. CEO Paul Otellini says project began a year ago. 16 January 2007
  • MacBook Air offers "pricey" flash-memory drive as an option, which could boost the fortunes of memory-chip makers like Samsung. 16 January 2007
  • "There's something in the air." MacBook Air, "world's thinnest notebook" — new line between MacBook and MacBook Pro. 16 January 2007
  • Gianopulos talks about DVDs. Fox, as expected, announces iPod-ready digital copies on DVD discs, starting with "Family Guy" release. 16 January 2007
  • Correction: Gianopulos. Fox shows Homer Simpson in an iPod ad spoof. Is that a donut he's holding — or a DVD? 16 January 2007
  • Apple TV price drop: $229, down from $299. 16 January 2007
  • Jobs admits Apple TV was a failure. "Apple TV Take 2" — "no computer required," rent directly from your TV screen, including HD movies. 16 January 2007

  • On Jobs's SMS short list: PR chief Katie Cotton, VP eng Bertrand Serlet, VP mktg Phil Schiller, Google CEO and Apple director Eric Schmidt. 16 January 2007
  • iPhone maps now include GPS-like location data. Still using Google Maps. 16 January 2007
  • Broadcast media get let in first — but Walt Mossberg used his clout to cut in line. "I'm VIP," he said, waved his badge and walked past. 16 January 2007
