    Michelle Peluso, Gilt

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 6:18:03 PM

    Shop on Gilt from the comfort of the couch.

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 6:18:44 PM
    Nice shopping feature, but is that all that appealing to most people?
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 6:19:51 PM
    Now -- Chad Evans of Major League Baseball.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:20:45 PM

    Chad Evans, MLB

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 6:21:08 PM
    Calling up a game to watch -- but you must still need a subscription to MLB.tv.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:21:47 PM

    Any and all stats can be pulled up using the MLB app

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 6:21:57 PM
    Stats can be viewed while live game is minimized, and split screen is available.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:22:17 PM
    Cue -- take a "linear" game and make it interactive.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:22:55 PM
    $149 Decent price.
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 6:23:58 PM

    Not bad, but not exactly awesome. I don't see this transforming the market.
    Hiawatha Bray 9/9/2015 6:25:04 PM

    Next item on the agenda: iPhone

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 6:25:56 PM
    Not that different from what's on Apple TV now -- no additional content deals, no exclusive Apple content.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:25:59 PM
    No way to watch over-the-air TV.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:26:25 PM

    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:28:43 PM
    No product is more important to Apple's bottom line either.

    New glass is "strongest in industry."
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:30:42 PM
    Does that mean fewer cracks?
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:30:48 PM

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 6:31:34 PM

    New features on iPhone 6s

    jessica.geller 9/9/2015 6:32:43 PM
    Jony Ive says it's force, with a different name.
    Bennie DiNardo 9/9/2015 6:32:52 PM
    Wow...at last I'm impressed. 3D Touch looks like something I'd really love to have.
