 It’s 8, but that’s what it’s for; yep.You know, as much as I used to hate it (still do), I’m starting to warm to the idea of native Apple TV games. Say an Apple TV with an A9 in it. Supports 2160p video (all new iTunes content to match) at H.265. Completely and utterly blows away not only the compatibility and power of everything else on the market, but makes buying an Apple TV the only possible choice due to its even HerD (pronounced “ay-cher-dee”) content library. And...
This is utterly ludicrous. Why? 
 I appreciate the vote of confidence, but I’m pretty sure Soli’s right on this one. In any case, it’s not cool to force updates on anyone in any OS. I’d like to know why they do it for the Apple TV but allow choice in iOS proper and OS X. They’re trending toward forcing people to auto-update, so let’s hope we keep the choice. After all, just ONE bad update for ONE day seems to have shattered confidence in new ones. How long before that trust is restored?
 Who cares?
 It doesn’t store files, so yeah, AirPlay is enough. For what purpose? It’s a television. Have Channels. What’s wrong with just doing it through the TV? I’d like a 1:1 of the UI in Remote, myself. No sense in having to drag when you can just touch what you want. And have a $500 markup over regular “smart” TVs? And H.265, of course, but that’s a given.
 Okay, what’s your suggestion for features?
 We’re talking about modifications to existing content.  The only thing left to do is make a viable alternative to cable/satellite, and I wouldn’t call that just “add some functionality”.
 You’re already overturning it by being in favor of a lawsuit WITH NO PLAINTIFFS.
 THIS IS WHY I AM AGAINST APPLE’S ABILITY TO UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE WITHOUT YOUR INPUT. THIS IS COMPLETE NONSENSE. Hopefully people understand me now that it’s too late.  If they do, my subscription ends. I’m paying them money for a reason.  So you want exactly the same product they already have out now? What’s the point of that? An update is meaningless without the channel deals.
 Works fine. I don’t know about WMVs with it anymore, though.
