    Why do I foresee myself making Mr. Jobs richer?

    It will be nice to have iOS on the iPad. Have to wait until November. :(

    iPod nano with a multi-touch interface. Nice!

    No GPS, still only 64GB. Nice, but it's not compelling me to buy.

    Now just hitting f5 waiting for the store to come back. Definitely getting this Touch. Just wish it was a 16gb model for $200.

    I will be pre-ordering the Apple TV. Like my current Apple TV but want to play with the new one. Will probably move the current one to the den.

    The Apple TV box may be interesting . . . it should put some pressure on Directv to update MediaShare and the PPV pricing.

    Unfortunately, it's only 720p.

    While I agree, the Apple TV Box is interesting and I very well might buy one but unfortunately I don't see this box putting any kind of pressure on DirecTV to update MediaShare or PPV Pricing.

    OK, I didn't realize this. Iphone 3GS camera: 3 megapixel. iPhone 4: 5.

    Touch 4: .7

    Me too. I'm hoping they fixed the podcast issue. Every time I sync, it borks them up on the timings.

    Ya. He glossed over that fact and the fact that the Nano's no longer support video. Understandable for a screen that size, I guess. But he left open a big marketing hole for $99 video players, IMHO.

    That Apple TV adapter is intriguing. Ya, it essentially duplicates a lot of the functionality I have in my LG BD player (netflix, youtube, photos, video, music, etc.), but the UI for this thing is absolutely gorgeous, IMO. I agree with Jobs's comment that there has never been a better implementation of Netflix. And the photo slideshows you can create are pretty awesome. For $99, Apple TV may be worth a try.

    I have been using the Apple TV UI for a couple of years now and what you say is the main draw for me. It's very easy to use and less cluttered than the PS3 UI. I do like the current Netflix UI so I'm also interested to see how it translates in the Apple TV.

    I don't know about Netflix... but I think all the HD stuff on iTunes is in 720p anyway... so that's probably the major factor in Apple TV not having 1080i/p output since it would be all upconvert anyway.

    Meanwhile... am I the only one that thinks the new iPod touches are going to potentially eat into iPhone sales?

    $299 for 32GB iPod or iPhone, or pay more for the 64GB iPod. Only thing missing now from iPod touch vs iPhone is GPS, and phone features right? That being the case... with Facetime on the iPod touch, and the Skype app for other phone calls, you wouldn't need an iPhone and you wouldn't have to pay that monthly fee for data or phone service.
