This was pretty awesome. What a shame, though, Laura had to leave so close to the 200 mark. (Not that you guys aren't good!)
I'm a level designer. It's fun, trust me.

"Systray volume not changing headphone volume."
That's the notification area, not the system tray, silly!
7:10 "...there's also MSDN, where you can download the ISO."
Not so fast. That's only for people with volume license keys.

@piercove: Backards compatibility with 360 titles isn't an intentionally omitted feature; it's simply not possible. The hardware of the Xbox One is drastically different from the 360, and emulation of the Xbox 360 would have a lot of resource overhead.
RE: [11:36] - How to do 8.1 upgrade if you can't use store.
You mention being able to get retail media and doing a fresh install or an upgrade. Last time I checked, MS weren't giving ISOs to consumers. And for me, the fact that people wanting to get the ISOs will have to do so through unsupported methods is a real slap in the face for people who have slower/metered connections and/or multiple PCs to upgrade.
I'm not sure if there's a reason this wasn't mentioned, but you can change user environment variables permanently. Go to the System Properties window, Advanced System Settings, and click "Environment Variables."

For the first 40 seconds, Ping felt like an episode of Seinfeld.

Microsoft Play sounds like a really neat idea. It would be great to be able to play some games from XBLA. It's unlikely, but porting Perfect Dark would be amazing.
It's nice to see how well the Windows store and Windows 8 have done. I had concerns having seen the response of some people on the internet, but it's nice to see Microsoft's latest platform doing well. I suppose you could say the haters are a small but obnoxious bunch.
Oh, and the IE10 video was pretty funny, too.
Thanks, Gov. I'm the one that submitted the white pixel bug and this helped.
Also, worth mentioning the dot isn't solid white. It doesn't appear when using a non-composited theme, and it takes the window border properties of your current theme when using any Aero theme. It will also appear when Transparency is enabled; it's simply not as noticeable because the dot is slightly transparent due to reasons just mentioned.
(PS: Yes, the dot is in the screenshot. You didn't look close enough. )
