Shouldn't Apple have all of its little shindigs in NYC (The Big Apple)? Or Antartica? They might like Antartica, its all white, you pay 10 times the value of land for the same area and worse features, and it's "magical".
AppleTV - come on. It's even less useful than the existing one. I want to play videos not show pictures. I want it to connect to a home media server, not pay $1 a pop to apple. Who really gives a stuff what other people are doing or watching? $229 price too much for people to gamble on, pity us that did and got a device that you have to hack before it can become 1/2 useful. The remote is crap, the UI is crap, it doesn't even save power when in standby (have to disconnect or it gets so warm - even in England that it could melt your TV). Thank God for XBMC
[citation][nom]rsud[/nom]I love your envy....Another smash hit of stuff for the rest of the market to scramble and try to copy.I am still in uproarous laughter at the 'iPad will fail' crowd which I guess you are part off....[/citation]
I am in uproarious laughter at how you can not spell or use correct grammar: "...guess you are a part of."
Go download an iSpell app for your iPod.
I'm surprised AppleTV and Netflix play nice. How will Apple make money if people use their Netflix subscription? Is there really any overhead in the price such that Netflix can pay a portion to Apple?
I dunno, I stream hi-def baseball games over MLB.TV and its not the greatest, but its the only way to watch those games. If its between streaming to my set-top box or renting a Blu-Ray (netflix or redbox), I'd go the blu-ray route. Seriously, I can wait a couple days between when the movie first hits shelves and when I can rent it, I don't need it at exactly 12-midnight.
[citation][nom]rocky1234[/nom]Lol oh boy yet another Flapple Zombie. You do realize there are far better devices out there than Flapples iprods right? Which do not make you use crap software like iPuke(itunes).[/citation]
I feel for you. Must suck to be part of the second best me toooo crowd with Apple creating new markets leading the way to the best ideas for useable tech. You are stuck following with envy....
"I have that toooo, and mine is better" whined the 4 year old...!
1 to 2 minutes of commercials on hulu is still much better than $.99 for every show i want to watch. plus i can just turn off any show i don't like and i don't feel cheated out of $1. i'll stick with my HTPC
ill buy an iPod when they start changing the iPod to make the sound quality better...yes the sound quality because thats what an iPod is for, music. I don't care about the song titles being lit up by a brighter screen. Apple is completely selling out by going for little features instead of the main one which is Music.
