This thread is purley specualtion for Apple TV's future. When calling my local Apple store yesterday, I had a conversation with my buddy and we disscussed the very strong reasons why it seems likely, apple will put Apple TV to its grave. Apparently Apple TV never reached its full potential, in the early 1990's apple had working protoypes for a similar device (minus the itunes) and add cable provider/DVR. Was this what apple had in mind when originally designing apple tv? It seems to me the apple tv was just a device to market the name. Apple will eithier release a new Apple TV with more features and a new apple remote (pray people pray), or they will totally kill the apple tv line.
