Not yet, but I'd buy it in a heartbeat if Couch Surfer could play MLB.com game broadcasts. Has anyone heard if this would?

Lost on appleTV

Yeah, I'd buy it too, if I could stream hulu.com and Lost from abc.com to the appleTV through the web browser.

Who will be the first to buy this and try out all these cool things?

So I looked over this site, and looked at all the pix, and I am sorely tempted to try it out.

I mean, $60? That's not a lot of money if it we don't lose any 2.02 functionality. I did not see any mention of music, and all of my music is synced. And what about the iPhoto link-up?

Anyone know?

Like it's been said in the other threads, all this software can be had for free over at awkwardtv.org. Someone is just taking all the software and bundling it up.

As for couchsurfer's flash support: it is shaky at best.
