Boy- I can! A ton of reasons- I have the 3 Apple TV 3s and can easily imagine reasons to replace them. Here is my wish list for what information we know so far:
-Applications (Larger SSD- the current 8gb isn't near enough- 16gb would be adequate, 32gb preferred). You can't have Apps with the current device because of size limitations.
-Stream iTV- whether it be Vios or U-verse. As mentioned in this thread- they could even do a cable company.
-Built in DVR if it has iTV (again- with 32gb, this would be attainable. Or at the very least, a software tweak to be able to record and store on a Mac).
-Better search functionality via remote. Specifically Siri. Remote looks the same with an additional button you hold, it mutes what you're watching (or turns down substantially), and you tell it what to do or search for.
-Unified search across all applications (Even if they dont have apps- this should happen).
-If no apps, add some other ones- like Amazon, HBO, Pandora, CNN, ESPN, or other popular ones.
I'd gladly not only replace my ATVs, but pay more in the process ($199). By the way- this would make this the best box in the market. By a mile. There is absolutely no reason why Apple shouldn't have all the above on the next release (with the exception of iTV- which is just a wish, but possible).
