Macworld Live returns

Macworld Live is moving up. As always, Macworld's editors will be haunting the floors of Macworld/iWorld (events start this Thursday). But this year, the popular Macworld Live public stage show will be featured among the gems of the "Live Zone," which occupies the second floor of Moscone West in San Francisco.

To view the presentations (which kick off each day at 11 AM and are open to all attendees) in person, take the escalator to the second floor--you'll find our stage in the northeast corner. Here you can watch some of your favorite Macworld editors interviewing the best and brightest of the Apple community.

If you don't plan to be in San Francisco Thursday, January 31st through Saturday, February 2nd, you can also check out the show streaming live on the Macworld.com homepage.

Macworld Live will include such sessions as Macworld's Best of Show awards, Pundit Showdown Live!, Super Art Fight, a live version of Lex Friedman and Dave Wiskus' Unprofessional podcast, a just-as-live The Incomparable podcast, Photography and Video on the Mac, Mac Gaming: What Went Wrong, Apple in 2013: A Look Ahead, and Ask the Editors--an open forum where you can pose questions to a panel of Macworld's editors. Check out the full schedule below.
