400 million accounts for app store. 650,000 apps. 225,000 specifically for iPad
If that's the largest collection of credit cards on the Internet it's frankly amazing that it's not been the victim of a large-scale hacker attack.
30 billion apps downloaded. $5 billion paid out to developers

Exciting new changes coming to notebook lineup. Phill Schiller on stage to talk about them
MacBook Air is first: Phil - "Everyone is trying to copy it"
Macbook Air gets third-generation Ivy Bridge processors. Turbo boost up to 3.2 GHz, up to 60% graphic boost, 512 GB flash storage
Airs also get USB 3. 10 times faster than USB 2, he says
FaceTime HD 720p camera too. 11" comes at $999 and $1099. 13" comes at $1199 and $1499
All of those prices are $100 less than before. Shipping today
Basically the same improvements, i.e. 60% faster graphics. It's all USB 3 too.
13" comes at $1199 and $1499. 15" at $1799 and $2199
New MacBook Pros are also shipping today
Ooh, there's a "one more thing" for laptops
What is a next-generation MacBook Pro? Phil says it should have a "killer" new display. Hmm... what could it be???
Audience is going nuts for the next-gen MacBook Pro, which is thinner than Phil's finger and looks like it has a Retina display
It's 0.71 inches thin. 1/4 thinner than current MacBook Pro. About as thin as the Air. 4.46 pounds
And the crowd goes nuts for the official Retina display announcement
15.4 inches across (screen). 2880 x 1800 pixels, four times the previous MacBook Pro, 220 pixels per inch
"The world's highest resolution notebook display" - Phil
Reduced glare and reflection by 75%. Ships with Lion, which is updated to work with Retina
Apple has updated a lot of its software, like iPhoto and Aperture, to work with this Retina display. Photos are four times the resolution
This is good because my photos were looking better on an iPad than on the computer, which feels weirdly wrong
I don't wanna curse things, but the wi-fi is swimming along now
Perhaps there is hope for humanity
Phil showing the insides of the new MacBook. About 1/3 of looks to be batteries
Up to 16 GB of RAM. 768 GB of flash storage
7 hours of battery life. I'm betting this thing is going to cost $8,000
It's got an HDMI port, as well as USB 3
Apple doesn't broadcast it live.
The event isn't being streamed so there's no way to watch the video. Don't worry, you're not missing much. Just a summary of everything Phil just talked about
Designing components from the ground up rather than using existing parts lets Apple make more efficient machines, the video says
Any wagers on how much this thing will cost?
Here we are: $2,199 at basic configuration
