Clearly, Apple has not cared at all about Apple TV sales for some time...they have done no promotion or advertising of the product at all (or of any memorable significance), the interface has seen no meaningful change, nor has the hardware.   So either they really don't care about the segment (and thus the sales or market share numbers), or they will release something fairly significant (and likely change those numbers).   I'm sure Apple really wants to make a splash...
Who said people weren't using their Watches? This is great news!
Not so sure...why INTRODUCE such as mess except that Apple conscientiously wanted this model? Those aren't trivial design errors...they impact use for tens of millions of users...no wonder many walked away if the survey is accurate...I turned it off already for these reasons.

Wait till they cart out the inflatable rat...  
Here's something else I noticed...if you use an external USB DAC for higher quality headphone or two channel listening, players such as Pure Music, Amarra Symphony, or Bit Perfect can't pass the Apple Music files to the DAC....they either remain paused, or play thought the computer speakers only
Yes, it is either not well thought out or more nefarious then I'd like to think Apple is...
There's not a single answer. On your computer (iTunes), your personal local music remains on your computer. If you enable iTunes in the Cloud, your personal music is uploaded to the cloud, and STREAMS to your iOS devices. You no longer can sync your music locally to your devices. You must stream even your own music.
