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.

"Twice as fast" as Tegra3, purports apple (actually, for pixel movement comparison, it would need to be)
