Crazy that they aren't live streaming video when the first thing out of the gate is a comment "and we made a video of this store.."

I don't think he said they are announcing 3 products today but that they HAVE 3 post PC products, ostensibly leaving out Apple TV

$99, available next week, can pre-order today.. sites differ on how long it took to start a 1080P movie.. from 10 seconds (engadget) to 15 seconds (ar)  but either way that's a big stall to start a flick, which assumes it's streaming only and buffers all.

Confirmed a resolution of  2048 x 1536.      That is a stunning, stunning processing achievement.    Moves this to the "will buy out of the gate" field.
