Apple TV Costs $64 to Make, According to iSuppli

Apple TV Costs $64 to Make, According to iSuppli

After the launch of a high-profile gadget, two things generally happen: first, it gets torn apart by iFixit. The second, is iSuppli takes a look at the insides in their own way, and figures out just how much it cost a company to make the thing that everyone loves (or hates). This time around it's the new Apple TV, and while the previous version may have cost an arm and a leg to manufacture, the new, smaller version is definitely a lot easier on Apple's pocket.

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.

Why I pre-ordered the new Apple TV

Why I pre-ordered the new Apple TV

Let me just get this out of the way now: I don’t like the new Apple TV. I don’t like that it doesn’t feature on-board storage. I don’t like that I can’t buy songs on it. I don’t like that I can’t buy movies and television shows. And I don’t like that it’s a hobbled alternative to even my least useful set-top boxes.

Apple TV Redesigned, Now a Tiny Black Box with HDMI

Apple TV Redesigned, Now a Tiny Black Box with HDMI

The Apple TV revolution may have been less a revolution and more of a hobby, which has been agreed upon even by Steve Jobs himself. But, that's not stopping Jobs and company from announcing a brand new, second-generation Apple TV. But, this time around, it certainly is a revolution, even if you're just looking at it from a first-to-second generation stand point. Now smaller, a quarter of the size of the original and able to fit into the palm of your hand, Apple TV has become something completely different.

Netgear Powerline AV and AV+ adapters hit CES 2010

If wireless is too much trouble for you, Netgear have also brought a pair of new Powerline networking devices to CES 2010.  The Netgear Powerline 200 AV Adapter Kit (XAVB2001) and the Powerline 200 AV+ Adapter Kit (XAVB2501) are both HomePlug compliant, and each offer up to 200Mbps connectivity.  The key difference between the two is that the AV+ system has filtered pass-through AC sockets, meaning you don't have to entirely monopolize an outlet with the adapter.
