    It seems Apple has filed some patents for a Wii-like remote that most people seem to think will work with the ATV.

    Do you guys think this might mean an ATV4 is in the works? Would it make sense to release one with OS X 10.8, given the new Airplay feature?

    I know these are highly speculative questions but I'm trying to figure out whether I want to Craigslist an ATV2 and jailbreak it, buy an ATV 3 right now or wait.

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    It's pretty common knowledge that Apple is working on a TV-type device. There have been a lot of rumors about it lately.

    ML is due out this summer, IIRC, and it is highly unlikely that Apple would release a new ATV so soon after releasing the ATV3.

    I'm a big Apple fan, but ATV's are still very new to me, so I just found out about these rumors today.

    Do you think there is validity to all the aforementioned rumors? If so, would it just be for a device in the distant future?

    Again, all highly speculative questions, I know. I suppose I'm not asking for answers, just opinions.

    The Apple TV costs $99, just buy it. Not exactly breaking the bank.

    This... Although I would probably elaborate and say, Chances of an AppleTV set very very High.... chances of an AppleTV Set by the end of the year, Medium.

    There seems to be a lot of debate if it is coming in Q4 of this year or Q1(2?) of next.

    There is no way another AppleTV (box) is released this summer. Very Very Very low unless for some reason Apple had a ton of "old" dual-core A5's from iPads and iPhones just sitting around and they felt like upping the processing power and calling it the AppleTV 4. Again I really doubt that especially since the AppleTV box is a one-function-at-a-time type device so the dual-core would be virtually lost on it.
