They haven't announced anything, but I'm already preemptively disappointed. /s

Any revised box can only be for games (who cares) and/or cable integration which will of course be USA only (quadruple who cares).  

 

I'm not interested in a fully fledged tv, I have one already and only a year or so old. An updated Apple TV box is much more interesting, even for someone outside of the US.

With all the rumors floating around, Apple is working on SOMETHING for Apple TV.  That much is sure.  I don't think they are going to open the flood gates and allow all sorts of apps for Apple TV.  I expect its something better.   

 

If I had to guess I think the ability for iOS devices to use the AppleTV as a secondary display (like in Mavericks) is in the works.  It might be limited to the iPhone 5S and next gen iPad, but I think it is coming.  If iOS could use AppleTV as a secondary screen that would create a lot of new and exciting opportunities for app developers.  Plus, then you don't really need apps on the Apple TV.  If you want something on the Apple TV you just write something for the iPhone and iPad that has support for the AppleTV built in.

 

Just my completely random theory.  My only proof is that if they've got it working in Mavericks they could probably do it in iOS too.

You can already do that for all the instances in which it would make any sense to do.

I'd go the other way... Give the AppleTv a HDMI in and the ability to stream unique video to multiple iPads as Personal TVs

THIS JUST IN: This afternoon Apple announced that the company has cured cancer and associated fatal diseases. Apple stock (APLL) hit penny stock status in after hour trading. Steve Ballmer, the outgoing CEO of Microsoft (MSFT) in commenting on the news said, "We will be coming out with a cure in the near future, however our cure is fully compatible with Windows."

If true, glad I didn't buy an ATV two months ago as I almost did. Will gladly welcome a new and updated "hobby." Looking forward to it, thanks Apple.

Probably because all HEC are black and doesn't distract while watching TV. Airports are usually out of sight, or at least not close to a TV.

If you'll wait for the latest and greatest you'll always be waiting.

There are good times to buy apple gear and crappy times to buy apple gear. For example right now is a particularly crappy time to buy any non-Haswell Apple computer, the Mac Pro, the iPad, the iPhone (especially the iPhone) and the aTV.

It is a good time to buy a refreshed Haswell MBA.

Umm 99.999999% of TVs & A/V components are black? 1rolleyes.gif

I think I've finally discovered the reason Wall Street treats Apple so horribly. They don't have a clue what its stock symbol is, and so all the money that should be going to AAPL has been going to APLL, APPL, APPE, and APLE for YEARS!

There has to be another event coming in a month or so, they have ipods to refresh and ipads, wasn't it last year, after one event they said "we have a little more to show you" then boom it was ipad mini? Do I need a new tv not really, would I would be interested in a new apple tv sure, especially if it started having more games available versus just airplay.

Well, that's true, but only if we know from history what the timeline is and maybe we can guess when an update is coming out. For the MacPro, it turned out to be difficult as it was steadily upgraded for many years, but then, 'mediocre upgrades'.

The AppleTV, which this user was concerned about, is difficult to tell as we have no idea what they want to upgrade. The CPU? More HDMI ports, HDMI-in maybe?

Hahah haha ha that's funny! And probably true...
What is really factored into the price is a kind of perpetual sense of disbelief that any company could be as good as Apple is. ~Retrogusto
