LONDON -- Apple on Thursday confirmed that it is pulling out of the only
Macintosh trade show in the United Kingdom, leaving exhibitors to wonder
whether to proceed with plans for Apple Expo 2000, scheduled next spring
in London. Macworld UK had reported early Thursday that "strong rumors"
from Apple headquarters in Cupertino, Calif., suggested that iCEO Steve
Jobs was cool to Apple's participation in the UK show. MacWEEK had
reported that the UK date interfered with the Internet World show in Los
Angeles, which Jobs reportedly plans to attend. Full story.
