Looking at the success the app store has been for apple and the iphone, it has to be in the cards for Apple TV as well. The same way the original iphone apps were widgets off of dashboard, the same could be easily done for apple tv. I have to imagine that at some point i will be able to use my iphone/ipod touch as a controller and my bigscreen/apple tv as a gaming console. Now for those of you who are more tech savy than I am, assuming I am right and an app store is coming for apple tv, would there have to be changes to the existing hardware to accommodate greater functionality? What I am trying to figure out is if I purchase Apple TV now will I have to purchase a new one if an App store is launched for the Christmas season?
