I see one site that has a list of hacks (http://tutorialninjas.net/2007/03/26/hacking-the-apple-tv/) that includes that someone has successfully gotten the AppleTV to run iTunes. Does anyone have a link to this proof?

This, combined with the apparent success (http://www.awkwardtv.org/?p=9) of booting from an external hard drive leaves open a very nice option: Large external hard drive hosting the AppleTV, with the 'Shared' iTunes technically running on the AppleTV itself! Combined with the VNC mod, you could VNC in to use that copy of iTunes to buy items. (Hrm... Someone needs to hack in Bluetooth and then BT keyboard and mouse support.)

This, to me, would be the best option. The ability of the AppleTV to not only hold my entire library on itself, but even to share that library with all my computers via streaming. (Even better if we can re-enable the USB port, and have my iPod sync from my AppleTV!)
