It certainly looks like Apple is slowly but surely moving everything in house which is really smart. In a few years time Apples competition will find it difficult to combat the latest iDevice because they are relying on mass produced parts from other companies.
In most areas I'd agree, but the Apple TV has become a stagnant mess. This is no more apparent than outside of the USA where it's support for local content is embarrassingly low. The attitude that they've shown to their international community with regards to the ATV is simply disgusting really, especially when you factor in the 25% price hike that they happily charge us. Supporting local content via a channel store would have been simple for them really and would have...
Well, to match the features of the Fire TV they don't really have to do much. Add a channel store etc, features that they could and should have added years ago.
Well the Mac Pro was right at the end of the year. Apple doesn't tend to move quickly and are quite happy to push the time/date limits that people have in mind. So if Apple was to say tomorrow that they'd release a new Apple TV this fall, I'd take it that they would more than likely release it on December the 20th as that is the last day of Autumn as opposed to sometime in September when people expect it. So, if you tend to get upset about Apple taking forever to release...
Hmmm, if you're lucky enough to get selected could you then sell your ticket for a HUGE profit? Could Apple stop you doing that?
True, but Apple could have and should have released the App Store for the ATV years ago when they launched the ATV 2. They seriously dropped the ball for no reason on this one. 
It's in the UK. Although the Amazon content may not be in your country there will be the ability on this box for local content providers to get in on the action, plus the channel list is far more extensive than what is on the ATV. I wanted Apple to give a shit about the ATV and the users outside of America for years, I have owned each and every ATV with the hope that one day that might actually do something. Once this baby is in the UK I am putting my ATV on eBay, as a...
Unfortunately Apple with it's US Centric view seems to have been chasing cable providers instead of simply opening the App/Channel store so that the content providers could do their job for them.   I can see non US customers dumping their ATV's very quickly once this comes out in their country, Apples support for the international market with the ATV is a poor joke. Pay 25% more and have no local content whilst the US Customers get everything, really pisses me...
It's fair to raise prices based on the exchange rate. Still, it'd be nice if they lowered the prices on an improving exchange, the UK for example should now be lower.
Apple was willing to negotiate with the same labels in the USA to arrange this. It didn't magically drop into their laps, all I'm asking is that they put a similar amount of effort into their UK/all other international operations.
