Apple CEO Steve Jobs calls his company's new Shanghai store a "landmark in glass engineering."
iTunes 10 ditches the old icon for a new look.
Apple also unveiled "Ping" a new Facebook/Twitter-like social network built into iTunes 10.
Apple TV has shrunk substantially.
It also comes with a slick new UI that makes it easier to rent movies -- and a "magical" price point of $99 (though Steve Jobs avoided actually using that word to describe the set-top).
Steve Jobs has plenty to say, hopes to convert new customers and help TV studios "see the light"

Calm down skippy.
First off, in the real world, traditional 100 Mbps can easily accommodate a BR stream, even two in a lot of cases. If yours couldn’t, you didn’t have it working properly. Further, if you think you are the only person on the planet that has set up a home network and used it to shuttle media around, you’re not. We too all know the limitations of home networks and internet streaming.
Second, not everyone on the planet needs BR quality. The fact remains that “better than DVD” quality is possible over many internet connections. Nobody that actually streams video over the internet today expects to get “BR quality” any time soon. However, a lot of people currently enjoy the convenience of internet streaming and its popularity will only continue to grow. To say that internet streaming is useless because it is not as good as a BR is just silly. To claim otherwise is to be out of touch with reality.
Long story short, does the quality of streaming match BR? Of course not. Is there still a healthy market with large growth potential for video streaming? Of course there is.
“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
