Uhm, not sure what you mean, you might want to clarify. What is "the mechanics of a delivery vehicle", and what does it have to do with anything I said in my previous post? I'm talking about the Roku box, Boxee, WD Media Center, not to mention the wide range of BD players with netflix and hulu and pandora, and the current TVs that contain all these things.Here's a good article that lays out the battle for the "Living Room". Personally, after reading this, I my sway away...
Love to, but my gaming system is my computer. I don't really play games, except for the Lego games, which ROCK! and they run in 1600x1200 and then some on the later games. So I really don't see the need for an XBox. Plus I own a BD player too, so there's no need.I haven't heard of any device that streams 1080p movies, are you sure about this? Many cable companies claim they stream 1080p but in reality it's not. Not even Netflix has this...
Yes, Agreed... I understand why this hasn't happened (because 1080p is HUGE to stream over wireless) but they need to work on that. AND they need to work on supporting downloads of existing DVD/BD content we already own. And don't give me that Handbrake shit...I want Apple to support this.
His comment is typical to the average user. I think we all have been waiting for the world to catch up.
I totally agree with you here, I was expecting it to come on this device, but sadly it's watered down. However, I've been saying this for years now, but I think there are several reasons why they didn't do this. 1. UI: creating a user interface for the TV (IMO) is something Apple has probably been working with since the first gen ATV, but I don't think they have found a good solution to this. Many people have said maybe the Magic Trackpad (which I think has potential),...
Because HD movies and TV are HUGE files and would probably need that much just to cache. A standard DVD movie is about 1-4gb for example, and Blu-Rays can go from 20 gb to upwards of 50gb. you would have no space left for Apps.
Except that Apple was kind of working with an existing technology that already existing with the ATV. Look at the Roku boxes and all the different variations of the Digital Media Players since and before ATV came out. Not to mention all the Blu-Ray players that now can stream content from your computer and use Netflix and YouTube, etc... Now everyone has one and with more features than the ATV currently has. And now the Google TV revolution as well.I have heard nothing...
I'm glad you think that, but then why hasn't the HTPC market exploded yet? Oh, that's right, because they cost about 3-6 times that of the new ATV. Plus, unless your'e a serious techy, no grandma is going to buy a HTPC. ATV is so much more accessible to the average user. And could you please clarify what "houses" means?

That's great, but they are still using overseas jobs that could easily be done in the USA...get with it Apple...why not design and build your products in our country. Oh, that's right, because then you'd have to pay them decent wages and benefits. Which would mean the cost of Apple products would probably double. And, of course, no local government is going to deal with suicides on the job like they do in China.
