    The name "Teleport" sounds cool, and fits the bill. So it would suit Apple 100%

    Whatever name Apple comes out with, it had better stand up to the hype, we don't need another Nintendo happening on us...



    So many people were disappointed when they heard that their precious Nintendo Revolution was now called the Nintendo Wii... I actually heard a lot of my friends say that they would not be buying the Wii just because of the name...



    I'm just gunna sit here and cross my fingers and hope they do some long hard thinking...

    I think everyone is wrong on the inclusion of the 'i'. If you all remember, the iMac was the first product with "i" starting the name and it was used to acknowledge the internet and its focus of the internet.



    Several accessory products have kept the "i" branding, and sure enough the iPod itself, but as far as future hardware goes I think Apple will go in a different direction.



    I like the simple teleport idea. It's a nice clean word that makes obvious reference to "iTV's" capailities.



    I'm not sure of a new name, but you can almost rest assured (in my opinion) that Apple or i_____ will not be a part of it.

    Agreed! "Teleport" sounds absolutely perfect! Says me.. and you.

    TelePort is pretty good... But then again, I'm still 90% against the whole "iTV" concept as a product.

    iVision

    iTube



    These two are the most likely i've seen so far. Anything with -Pod is out, since it has no built-in iPod integration.

    How about the "iSee"?

    My choices:



    - Macstream

    - iStream



    They probably won't use the mac name because the device isn't a computer.
