Apple appears to be close to winning its battle with Macworld Expo organiser IDG World Expo over the location of the bi-annual show's East Coast venue. David Korse, IDG World Expo's new chief, has told the Boston Herald that he is examining the merits of New York and Boston, and will make a final decision on the show's location on 1 September.
If he chooses to stay in New York, the show's East Coast home for the past few years, it will be good news for Apple. IDG World Expo announced it was moving the show to Boston back in 2002, the East Coast show's former home. The first Boston show was scheduled for the summer of 2004. Soon after, Apple said it thought the move a mistake and promised not to take part.
