Macworld: Retro iPhone receiver

The Apple faithful have once again descended on San Francisco's Moscone Center West for the annual Macworld Expo (or, excuse us, the Macworld|iWorld as it's now known). Dubbed as the "ultimate iFanevent," Macworld offers the public a chance to check out the latest accessories and software for their Apple gear and attend various workshops.

This year, the event's organizer, IDG World Expo, added some programs, such as the "Music Experience showcase" and "Art Showings," to highlight how Apple products are being used in media and arts projects.

Yesterday, we visited the show floor to give you a sense of what's it like to attend the event. In this gallery, you'll see still more scenes.

Concerned about potential radiation, this man's wife bought him a unique receiver handset so he didn't have to hold his phone to his head. It's probably the most retro item on the floor at Macworld, but it's not on display, or even for sale.
