 Exactly.  Without the need to sell users on a new version of the software every year, Adobe can push out more frequent updates, rather than stockpiling them for one big update. I only use a limited number of their apps, so I wish they had some more flexible subscription options, but overall I think it was a move they needed to make.
 Leaving buffering room for video content, the amount of built-in storage (8GB) in the aTV leaves very little room for "apps" as you'd imagine them downloaded onto the box, like your iPhone or iPad.  So if Apple is planning for apps like that then they'll need to add more flash storage to the hardware.  I think this is why they'd prefer people to use AirPlay to stream games from other iOS devices, if they can get the lag down to something gamers can accept. Channels, on...
 There's several things Apple could be waiting on- 1. Release of Mavericks2. Sufficient supply of the new Intex Xeon chips3. Thunderbolt 2- which as far as I know isn't anywhere yet
 Hard to say.  Since the iMac didn't get TB2, I think it's far more likely that the MBP won't get it either, and that TB2 will be exclusive to the MacPro until next year's revisions.
The article is confusing. It's painting SuperHD as something new to AppleTV- I've had Netflix SuperHD content showing up on my aTV since May of this year.
 Anytime after Mavericks and before December.While it won't get any "stage" time at the supposed October Event, I'd expect Apple to update us on the status, either announcing it for sale or pre-order.
  And if you'll note, my original reply was specifically in reference to a message about the MAC/PC campaign.
  Sorry.  I don't get how ads that insult the user make me want to use their product.  And I think ads like these fly right over the heads of people who aren't "techie enough" to be aligned with any particular platform.
  I was speaking specifically about the Mac/Pc ads.  I think the 80's Apple stuff was definitely more cut-throat between Mac and Windows.  There was no clear winner in the PC space in 1985 when this ad was made.   I think the Samsung ads a very much a "speaking to the converted".  I can't imagine too many people who are going to watch an ad where they're being called idiots for using their current product are going to go running to Samsung.
  To my mind, there's one important difference.  The PC USER was never brought into the comparison in Apple's ads, only the machines (though anthromorphised by the two actors).  Samsung's adds attempt to directly caricature and mock users of Apple's products.
