When Marshall McLuhan said "the medium is the message," what exactly did he mean?

People quote that all the time, and I sort of know what they mean, in a broad strokes sort of way, but I wouldn't be able to confidently explain it to anyone else. Please explain it to me, applying concrete examples for "medium" and "message." Thanks.
