I'm not sure I get it yet. Will we be able to stream Hulu or Youtube and other Internet video from iOS devices? (once 4.2 comes out). Will there be apps for iOS devices from software companies like Plex or Boxee that can stream to ATV?
Is what I really want still a Mac mini?

I know nothing like apps has been announced for the aTV, but given that google TV has announced that they will support web-browsing on the TV, do you think Apple will eventually have a Safari "app" for the aTV?

Do we know if the aTV has bluetooth capabilities? If it could eventually be linked to a keyboard and/or magic trackpad, I would think that web-browsing would be a distinct possibility.

I don't think so, but it would be great.

Imagine if AirPlay was totally accessible to developers. Any app could support streaming video/audio/etc from one device to another.

I'd go further and say that Apple should add a feature which lets you "beam" the full screen wirelessly from an iPhone/iPad to the Apple TV and display it on your TV and build it into the OS. Then you wouldn't need an "Apple TV app store."
