11:20 - It can do video as backdrops. Showing a guy in hawaii and one in times square. Three way chat.

11:19 - Video's slanted to the side, like on the 3 way iChat photo everyone knows about. Video has reflectivity off the bottom.

10:36 - Doing a demo of Time Machine. (First get up to 88 miles per hour!)

10:35 - Time Machine automatically backs up everything. As soon as a file is changed, it backs it up. Restores everything. Per file. Sounds like it takes up a lot of space. Can back up to HD or server.
