  it's like saying my TV can get NBC and CBS, so why does it need ABC, there's plenty of content on NBC and CBS.  Nevermind the sports fans who want monday night football and the nba finals.
  what are you talking about?  The official apple position in 2007 was to limit iPhone apps to Web 2.0 apps which produced limited results.  A year later they gave developers an SDK to write native apps and the results have been phenomenal.  At the time Steve Jobs said they did the SDK/App Store because developers asked to be able to do more than they could via Web2.0.   Apple TV faces a similar situation today.  Airplay Mirroring is to AppleTV what Web 2.0 was to iPhone....
  just a few whiners?  why should a TV media device limit your choices of media sources?  Look at all of the video apps on the iPad.  HBO Go, Showtime Anywhere, Amazon Prime, Vudu, TedTalksTV, etc, etc.  Apple periodically adds apps to the built in set, but has yet to let people choose others to add.  It's like selling a TV that can only get a predetermined number of the available TV networks.  They tried a similar approach with the iPhone when it was first released, but...

AppleTV needs apps.  There are really only two things the current AppleTV doesn't support, that's 3D and an App store.  Technically you don't need a new AppleTV to have an App store, but more memory would certainly be useful for that as some of the current memory needs to be set aside for storing video.
how is this any different from a web browser returning pornographic results?
I never knew you could sue a competitor for having a sale.   Also, I'm curious what day this happened.  I went to Best Buy the week before christmas to buy an iPhone 5 for a gift, it was on sale for $50 off.  I didn't have to ask for a price match, they were having a sale.  They were out of stock for the 64 gig model so I had to get the 32 gig model.  I tried to get a price match at Verizon for the 64 gig model, they said they would lose money if they sold them at...
  Smasung has other customers, if they screw one over like this, they risk losing the business of others.
why are people stealing devices with built in location tracking?
