iPad Mini appears in Buyers Guide, but not Apple TV. Way past time to feature it.

I'm aware that the previous reason for not including the Apple TV in the buyers guide was that it was a "hobby", and there wasn't a timeline to base future releases on. But at this point, there have been numerous releases, and several different revisions. However, a quick look at the buyers guide shows the ipad mini, which has only one release.
Now it seems like you folks are just kinda being stubborn about it.
It's an official apple device with several versions, so seriously why not include it?

It still doesn't have a regular release cycle that can be used to predict upcoming releases.

The iPad mini could also have an irregular release cycle for all we know. There has been 4 releases for the apple tv so i think its time to be put in the buyers guide.

And the ipad mini does with it's one release ? It's not like apple posts a calendar of release dates of all it's products before they come out. All of the release news of every product is based on rumor and speculation up until they actually announce it.
My point is that the Apple TV actually has a history of previous versions to track, whereas the ipad mini does not. Many apple products are not as regularly updated as you have implied here. Does the Mac Pro always get updated at the same time each year? No. The "release cycle" that you refer to (like the iPhone, which is somewhat typically updated in the fall) is a fairly recent trend that does not apply to the full list of products in the buyers guide.
So why not include the Apple TV in the lineup? It runs on iOS and is an official apple product with several versions and updates. It just seems like a stubborn excuse not to track it's release history once u look at the buyers guide and realize ipad mini is included with its one release (and therefore no real history to base a "prediction" on).

Whether or not a release schedule can be predicted, it belongs in the buyer's guide with an explanation as to why there are no predicted release dates.

I think it should be included as well. The buyers guide shouldn't be limited to whether a product is on a regular release cycle. If that's the case, what the heck is the Mac Pro doing on there?
