Must be for sure. The Air 2 is a huge upgrade (to me). Primo product. Priced fair, but too expensive to be a regular consumer product.
Maybe they should have called it to 2S rather than the 3. Smaller upgrade than the iPhone 5 to 5S.
You could hook up the AppleTV to a regular 24" display and have a computer of sorts using your iPhone/iPad?
Probably waited too long to admit that their software has bugs...
Seems like Apple wants to tease you with the cheaper product and expect or hope you to spend the extra $$ for the more expensive iPad with far more storage. Sounds like their iCloud plans: You either get 20 GB or 200GB and higher. No 100GB. So, 20GB is not enough for many people, and 100GB is not there, so they are trying to tease you in and try to get you to dole out $3.99 a month. No thanks, there are 100GB plans out there that are more affordable and most people are not...
Maybe an app store will kill or mame their other products? It seems that for a device that sells for $99, there's little overall profit there and they would prefer to keep it hamstrung. Also, Apple probably thinks it's doing "good enough" in sales that they don't feel a threat from other TV box companies like Netflix and Amazon (and probably MS next). The AppleTV could do a lot for a little, but why affect profits? AppleTV could be used as a $99 computer. Actually, you...
 It's probably a deal like the car dashboards that car makers are including in their cars (whatever that Apple technology is called). It will be the AppleTV interface available via TVs sold by current manufacturers. There's already that one TV out there that has the AppleTV features.
We are finding that, like a lot of people, we don't have time to watch and might only watch Netflix once a week, which is the case now. But it is cheap enough to hang onto to watch shows here and there. Sometimes you feel you need to watch something to justify the cost of paying it. Household size matters: We have five people and it's likely each of us watches NF a least once a week. It would be nice if NF RAISED its prices to afford better programming. It's not bad now,...
Cable feels like a ripoff at the same time, despite the economy of scale to package 200 channels together. It would be nice to know how much Comcast is making. Money hand over fist, of course. This breakup may be a way of chipping away at the power of Comcast. When corporations get too big, they get too weird and customers are completely powerless in getting improvements in service. For instance, I ended up on an HP mailing list. When I went to unsubscribe, they said it...
This might turn out like the hard liquor change in Washington state. Voters approved a law that would take the liquor stores away from the state and allow stores to sell hard alcohol. Sure, you can get alcohol now in more locations than before, but the price of alcohol went up as the state still wanted even more taxes on booze. It will probably come to pass that if you want all of the channels provided by cable and got them a la carte, it would probably cost $300-$500 a...
