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.

Apple Special Event on September 1st, We’ll Be There Live

It's probably not surprising at all, really. Just today, we brought you the rumor that Apple would be holding some kind of event, primarily focused on their iPod Touch, and perhaps even on Apple's upcoming revamp of AppleTV (iTV), on September 7th.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple is currently in talks with networks to lower the price of TV shows on iTunes.

Netgear XAVB1004 Home Theater 4-port Powerline switch kit

Back before HDTVs, set-top boxes, consoles and Blu-ray players sprouted ethernet ports, the only people who needed a network hook-up near their AV kit were those with media streamers.  Now one cable might not be enough, so Netgear have stepped into the fray with their XAVB1004 Home Theater Internet Connection kit.  Consisting of a four-port ethernet switch with Powerline support, the kit funnels an internet connection across your mains wiring and shares it with multiple devices.

Time for Apple TV to go from Hobby to Strategic Product

Time for Apple TV to go from Hobby to Strategic Product

With the successful launch of the iPhone 3GS last spring and a new version of OS X and a new crop of iPods expected this fall, one player in Apple's lineup seems to have gone missing, namely Apple TV. On Apple's financial conference call, the device that Steve Jobs once described as "a hobby" was not mentioned once. I hope Apple hasn't given up on this category as there's a lot of value and function in Apple TV that has yet to make it into other products in this space.
