    The big event is scheduled to begin in 3 minutes. I'll start things off by announcing THE APPLE STORE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED via the App and their website.

    The screen has gone dark, some clapping revved up, and Tim Cook is being driven to the event, likely via video, discussing some rumors with his driver.

    Am I really here all by myself? Anyone, anyone?... At least he honored my request and has already moved on the the App Store.140 Billion App Downloads from the App Store. 500,000 Games in the APp Store.

    And MARIO is coming to the app store!! The game will be called Super Mario Run. Releasing in time for holidays. Pricing to be announced.

    Now that the GAMES are out of the way, they move on to EDUCATION. Glad they have their priorities in the proper order!!

    Tim discussed Swift Playground, which is an app for learning how to code, and then turned it over Susan Prescott(I think that's her name) to talk about iWork and some updates to that suite of apps.

    Did I hear the head guy of Nintendo actually call Tim Cook Steve? Swear I heard him say, Thanks Steve when he was introduced.

    Now it's time for APPLE WATCH.

    Apple Watch is now the #2 selling watch brand in the world, only behind Rolex. Does that include fake Rolexes, I wonder?

    Jeff Williams is out to talk about Apple Watch, including Watch OS3

    I'm thinking the Preorder Tweet, that has been pulled now from Apple, was just to get people a glimpse of the those two beautiful iPhone 7's.

    I'm thinking someone posted it early by mistake and will be fired by lunch time, if they haven't been already.

    There's now someone from Nike discussing watch/Nike+ Collaboration., but my sound and video seem to want to take turns cutting out on me so I'm not getting everything. Sounds like Nike+ App and the Watch are coming together to do something together.

    Well damn, I hope not. I think it was intentional. I tell you, I don't care as long as the Preorder day is Friday! I need a break. Still taking deep breaths. I can't decide which color I want yet.

    Oh damn @bballrob Don't worry the Preorder for the Apple watch is on September 9 and Watch 0S3 available on September 13. Apple Watch Series 2 $369 and Series 1 $269. Nike I wasn't paying attention to. They do have a few colors for Nike Apple Watch though.

    They've moved on to iPhone now. They're talking about iOS 10.

    Are you on the Apple Web site? I'm on their looking at the Keynote. They're have been a few hiccups.
