Steve Jobs' Macworld keynote (this year it will be tomorrow morning) has always drawn tons of media coverage, especially in advance as Apple followers everywhere make a game out of predicting his pronouncements. (In a previous post, I linked to some of the speculation.)
Now someone has actually made a real game out of the showcase speech; bingo. The New York Times's inimitable personal; tech columnist David Pogue draws our attention to a "witty programmer" who created "Macworld Bingo" for all live listeners and viewers of the Jobs keynote.
The programmer's Bingo template includes a randomized list of 50 possible keynote subjects. If Jobs touches on it, one can press a button and check it off. If you get five buttons in a row, column, or diagonally, you have won Macworld Bingo
Subjects range from "iTV released" to Steve in his famous "turtle neck and jeans." So which crazed Mac fans will be participating in the Macworld Bingo? Obviously, too many as the top of the site's web page notes: "The server is collapsing under the unforseen popularity of Keynote Bingo!"
