So far there hasn't been much announced. But I would really love to see this stream!!!

But seriously, what is the point? I mean, nothing was really introduced except some cool (somewhat useless) bluetooth stuff by moto and burton, right? The iTunes phone was mentioned but it didn't look like anything special... It seems it is has much less publicity this year, is that just me not paying attention?

Nope, apparently Gates and co. just rehashed "their" digital hub strategy, saying they already have the necessary components available. So it was more of a marketing event than a sales-pitch event.

It is too bad that what's currently available from them is about as useable as a toothbrush, once it's fallen onto a pube-encrusted dorm bathroom facility...not that that's ever happened to me at college.

With Microsoft playing "old is new again", it was up to the TV and Radio companies to keep things fresh and fun.

Yeah, the replay streams were up at one point. I got half way through before it crapped out. It was pretty good. I was also thinking that they'd eventually rerelease it... edited.
