MacWorld Expo 2010 opened with a bang for me. I walked onto the showroom floor and was immediately sucked in by the all things Mac buzz that is the MacWorld Expo. As you’d expect there was Mac, iPod, and iPhone gear and software out the ying-yang and vendors stacked shoulder to shoulder vying for your attention like a knick-knack vendor on the streets of Mumbai. I stood in the center of the floor in an effort to gather some clarity before diving into the madness. I circled my eyes around the conference floor and as far as the eye could see where elaborate booths and banners that vendors spent thousands of dollars designing and planning, but surprisingly the smallest most inconspicuous display is what sucked me in…The Smule Mule!
By now everybody who’s got an iPod or iPod Touch all know about Smule. Smule acquired its cult-like following with the introduction of their smash hit app Ocarina and have since rolled out tons of uber fun music apps, the most popular right now being “I Am T-Pain“. Armed with an iPhone, Speakers, a Microphone, 6 inches worth of floor space, and pimpolicious attire, The Smule Mule sucked in passers bye like lead on a magnet with his melodious mix of customized T-Pain jams (see video below). No one could resist The Smule Mule’s MacDaddy charm and outrageously fun app. One after another people lined up to sing into the microphone, unleashing their inner T-Pain. I guess it just goes to show that it’s not all about glitz, glam, and pockets full of cash to have a successful setup at MacWorld. Perhaps all you need is just two turn tables in a microphone…or in this case, an iPhone, a really sick app, and The Smule Mule!
I couldn’t of imagined a more fun way to kick-off MacWorld than this. I was now ready to dive in! More to come. Stay tuned…
