Siri kicks things off with a little comedy routine...


Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

Engadget's new Live Blog app is pretty cool. Getting updated pics of the slides up top, text in bottom 2/3rds. Nice!

Sorry, Sam, didn't think about the link. I'm using a TWiT TV app on my iPhone which is then AirPlaying it to my Apple TV. It looks great, and so far, not a hiccup. So glad I finally upgraded my internet service last year!

Nice updates to Airs, but no retina displays. Not on Pros either. Wow, lots of rumors were just plain wrong. Leo's crew speculating the cost of "retina" displays may not be low enough yet to put into shipping products.

Holy crap, it's 5K pixel display. Double the resolution of the current MBP. All apps being updated to work with new display.
