In a statement provided to MacMinute on Friday, Apple reiterated that it will not participate in Macworld Expo Boston. “When IDG initially announced its plans to move summer Macworld to Boston in 2004, we were very clear that we didn’t think it was a good move,” Apple said in the statement. “Our position stands and Apple will not be participating in Macworld Boston. We are 100 percent committed to Macworld San Francisco in January every year.” The statement follows IDG’s announcement that Macworld would indeed be moving to Boston in 2004.
