Complains about modern education, pushes iPad

(Updated with event stream) Apple has released the promotional video played at today's press event in New York City. The clip primarily pushes Apple's new textbook format, and the use of iPads in education. It also complains about the state of modern education, though, suggesting that Apple technology will help spark kids' interest in learning.

The textbook initiative is backed by three new products. The first is iBooks 2, an updated iOS app needed to read the books. The second is iBooks Author, a free Mac tool designed to simplifying publishing. Last on the list is the iTunes U app, through which iBooks content can be integrated into online courses.

Update: Apple has also posted a streaming clip of the entire event. People wanting a more permanent copy can download it via iTunes podcast.
