Sitting at the intersection of technology and liberal arts

Quite a sales pitch.
11:30: "Do we have what it takes to establish a third category of products?" Jobs asks. "We think we've got the goods. We think we've done it." One reason why: more than 75 million people "already know how to use the iPad," thanks to them buying iPhones or iPod touches. Another: Apple has more than 125 million accounts on the iTunes Store and App Store all enabled for one-click buying, which ought to help grease the skids for the iBooks store.

11:34: Jobs delivers his closing argument--"It's our most advanced technology in a magical and revolutionary device at an unbelievable price"--and offers his thesis of Apple's role as sitting at "the intersection of technology and liberal arts." Then he invites the audience to a hands-on area next door to try out an iPad. So that's my next move--and that's a wrap for the event. Post your questions in the comments and I'll see what I can get answered.
