Latest version of Apple TV still selling well

I have the original Apple TV and I can say without a doubt it was a worthless device for me. I used it maybe three times and it sits crammed into a drawer unused today. The new Apple TV had some changes to make it smaller and work better and so far, it has proven to me considerably more popular than that original device.

Apple TV to Support Gaming?

Strings inside Apple's iOS 4.3 beta firmware that'll be used on Apple TV have been shown to display clues leading to one possibility: the ability to play games on Apple TV without having to jailbreak first. An anonymous tipster speaking with Engadget has revealed the following references: "ATVGames" and "ATVThunder," both of them inside iOS 4.3 beta 3, as well as "com.apple.appletv.play.live.thunder" and ".play.archive.thunder."

Apple TV jailbreak gets video demo: Apps ahoy!

We've been keeping a close eye on the Apple TV jailbreak situation, and with one reportedly functioning exploit based on SHAtter already tipped to be working on the set-top box, it was only a matter of time until it fell to the hacker's attempts.  The iPhone Dev Team wrapped SHAtter up in a custom build of their PwnageTool - apparently not quite ready for public release, sadly - and managed to convince the Apple TV to load a pre-jailbroken IPSW.
