Micehelle Peluso of Gilt on stage.
Michelle Peluso from Gilt is up. Says most shopping done on iOS devices
(sorry. Had a momentary Wi-Fi hiccup, but now I'm connected to a hotspot)
We're seeing a demo of how Gilt will work on the TV
Shopping by basic categories: swipe and browse. You can see what sizes aren't available.
I want to scan my body into these outfits and try them on with a Kinect-like camera. Maybe next time
"Apple's innovation has always been great for Gilt, helping make shopping cooler, faster and more exciting. We believe a new Apple TV will make fashion from home more compelling."
"Clearly that's going to be a big hit in my house" (Cue making fun of his own style, which is an oversized, untucked button up and jeans)
Chad Evans from MLB.com is now up

Can look at all games, see highlights, and hey, the Mets! My team.
Shows how can have split screen to watch two games at once

My dad would love that feature, the long-suffering Cubs fan he is
