    About time!

    This could be a serious money maker with more channels and apps.

    However, it might be better to be integrated into a media server
    a hybrid Time Machine / NAS drive. Static video/audio/photos and
    dynamic real time streaming with content from iTunes.

    Who knows!

    Well outside of adding more channels (which I suppose is better than nothing), I have seen no proof that the aTV is still anything but a hobby for them.

    (And no, Gene Munsters eternal proclamations of an actual Television released by Apple doesn’t count).

    That's not proof of anything - at best that states that Tim Cook says its difficult to call it a hobby. There is absolutely no intent of additional intent that we can definitively extrapolate from that statement. As far as anybody can say, it's still a hobby. Cook himself doesn't say anything otherwise

    no kidding !! when did this happen ? :eek:

    And Apple still calling this a 'hobby' Some Hobby that they'd constantly added channels to the Home screen and its been escalating, not decreasing... :p

    That's not 'just a hobby' ...Its 'a product' a product they care about to this much to keep adding useful stuff too

    Apple should start treating this like one, seriously... or at least get rid of the 'hobby' slogan..

    That, alone would make me feel better :) Reminds me of why Siri is still in "beta' even though Apple is constantly improving and implementing it as their gateway in all their products, including CarPlay.

    will Apple ever get it ?
