So here we have it, the stackable system; Mac Mini, Airport Express, External Storage, and AppleTV:

From the FCC :

Apple Inc. requests that the Commission withholds the following documents from public viewing for one hundred eighty days after the date the grant of equipment authorization is issued:
External Photographs
Internal Photographs
Test Setup Photographs
User Manual
These documents reveal technical and design information that has not been publicly disclosed in marketing materials and is protected by Apple Inc. as confidential and proprietary trade secrets. This information has been disclosed to those required to maintain its confidentiality, and is not customarily disclosed publicly prior to the commercial release of the device. As a result, disclosure of this information by the Commission prior to commercial release would harm Apple Inc. by giving competitors an unfair market advantage. Apple Inc. believes the period of confidentiality requested is necessary to protect the information until the commercial release of a device.
It is our understanding that measurement test reports and FCC ID label format cannot be granted as confidential documents and this information will be available for public review once the grant of equipment authorization is issued.

Signed December 12,2012

This lines up with WWDC 2013 quit nicely.

Apps would be nice. It would also make a great game system if there were AirPlay controllers

Waiting for Nintendo + Apple.

It's clear they are aiming to bring Apps into the Apple TV. Anandtech says the new Apple TV will have an A5X and an updated antenna which should be a nice boost in performance.

What point would there be in it having an A5X processor? The A5X is just an A5 with an extra GPU to help drive the iPad 3's retina display.

The size for Apple TV are just fine how about features? Until their is more Apps I would not be buying Apple TV, such Amazon Prime would be nice to have on Apple TV.

Size is surely not the only change. More Memory could mean apps! And what it really needs is HDMI in. That way it could be placed inline with your cable box instead of being relegated to input 2. Thus it could take over the input when it receives some airplay, overlay graphics onto the cable, and so on.

My guess is that it's an updated A5X using a newer chip process (probably 32nm) to get the manufacturing line ramped up so this chip can go in the retina iPad Mini 2.

98mm squared is 96.04 cm squared
93.78 mm squared is 87.95 cm squared

the difference is 8.1 square cm or 8.4%




Sweet
So on a surface where you could once only fit 11 ATVs now you can fit 12
Think of the savings in shipping alone!

So what's the point? Faster wifi? It already goes 1080p.

I already bought a nice Sharp TV, so a revised Apple TV would be nice.

A faster processor with faster networking will improve the streaming of things like games. Currently, there is a lag when streaming some video and games.

I am not so sure. Apple could bypass them to bring it to market simply by releasing Apps. People could buy al carte channels like on some competing devices.

Well.... I doubt they're adding MORE ports on a smaller box.

It can get as small as they want it for all I care; just give me more features and apps, and make it customizable. Crackle, Vevo, NFL, Weather Channel just some of the apps I would like to see added. Of course, Amazon would be great but probably never gong to happen.

Rip out the guts of an iPod Touch. Toss the battery, display, cameras, and speaker. Stuff the power supply inside. That's how small. They could even put the power supply outside by making it use an iPhone 'charger' and a Lighting cable.

I seldom use mine, plus there's this annoying random video flickering every time I play any video... haven't found any hep anywhere... useless.

But more importantly: no USB port for reading media in external storage... no money for Apple. As simple as that.
