i'm seriously interested in the idea of a home media server built by apple to store and run all my files. (I have no interest in hacking my ATV etc...) I have many apple products, and the "iServe" could be just what I need to greatly simplify things for me. Currently we have, 2 Macs, 2 laptops, 4 ipods (shuffle, touch, nano and mini) an AEBS and an apple tv. My photo collection is around 6000 pictures and i have around 2000 songs, some tv shows and some movies. if there was a server from apple, that i could link all these too, 1 mac could be the master, the others could access information, so that my imac didn't have to be on and running intunes to enable me to stream photos or tv shows to my apple tv. it could also enable backups via time machine and photo library sharing etc.. basically like a "shard media" area available to all the networked devices. BTW, i would not want this linked into my apple tv, a separte device, or an upgrade to time capsule, (eg time capsule take two) would do the trick. am I wishing for a fantasy ? or could this happen soon.
