As part of the pre-show hype, Macworld has a 'First Looks' program which pre-showcases 'new-to-market products and innovations', and even though there was plenty of Apple-related stuff at CES, Macworld unsurprisingly states that it is the 'event of choice for Apple third-party product manufacturers to unveil and launch their newest products'.
Naturally, this means a lot of 'software, hardware, peripherals, accessories and applications for the Apple products platform'. The Macworld 2011 First Looks program showcases these products for media and attendees to make it easy to locate innovations at the show.
So, what are the 20 products highlighted by Macworld in its 'First Looks' press release? Here we go - the details appear in unedited form direct from the press release (free registration required for you to see the original).
