    Do you think Apple will put the Safari web browser onto the :apple: TV?

    That alone could count towards people buying an :apple: TV.

    I don't know how you'd use it, as there is currently no way to effectively control a browser on the :apple: TV.

    Maybe the rumors about the keyboard and Wii-style remote, for the :apple: TV where correct?

    I hate rumors :(

    Just curious what the interface is like. Arrows on the remote? How do you call up the text-input/enter an address? Click on a link?

    you press > on a text box to open the keyboard panel, pressing > on a link follows that link, pressing "menu" comes out of the interactive mode.

    it also supports USB keyboard/mice. you can get wireless working with some effort..

    I find it a bit cumbersome...a bluetooth hack with mouse / keyboard would be great
