Visit http://MacMost.com/geekgirl for more Geek Girl. This is my trip to San Fransisco. I hung out a little, visited Seesmic, and then covered MacWorld for MacMost.com
I had so much fun, and met so many new friends!

Just a crazy theory that I thought I’d post on. There has always been speculation about Apple buying Adobe. With the new banners above the Moscone Center reading “There’s Something in the Air,” and AIR being the desktop development environment that Adobe is currently pushing, could this be the surprise announcement at MacWorld?
This week I show you around the popular "Flip Cam" that everyone's been wondering about. It was a hot item this holiday season, and if you're now considering buying one for yourself, you've got to check out this video. If you want more detailed specs, go to theFlip.com
