Old adage about being asleep at the wheel... There has been a Boxee box in the works for a while now. Last I heard was $99 retail with possible subsides from netflix to make it free with a 2yr sign up. I think they actually have their own that can run it as well. Either way that's the future for media in the home.

iPod's are for personal usage. AppleTV was meant for home.

And what is with these lame slogans? Someone retire leaving the daycare in charge?

New AppleTV event will be titled "It's hip to be square!". Apple Tablet event "I can see clearly now the stylus is gone." - Flaming! Who ever is making these should make like a tree and leave (scram - if you know that movie).

Ultra low power Macs - "the power of love"
Itunes breaks 99 billion downloads - "99 Lufballons"
Retro iMac classic release - "Party like it's 1999"

How about we take one of your slogans use it for the rest of them - "Stop in the name of love"

Starting to get a little UN-COOL to be a Mac owner when you have to explain why these slogans are getting used.

If it's all iPods, I'm getting a Zune.

Netflix and Amazon both have a better selection.

Better hurry! They are being discontinued, unless you want a Zune HD soon you'll be out of luck!

I've been surprised that Apple doesn't make that link, in both ways, very clearly. Perhaps they're waiting to get their media strategy together.

I mean - why not build a dock with IR port, so that the iPod Touch or iPhone can be placed in the dock and immediately offer the AppleTV interface on the TV. Local music & video, youtube, streamed content from iTunes, whatever... it could be quite an easy introduction to the AppleTV.
