Please be aware that this thread is not about bashing Apple for removing features or delivering an inferior product, because there are enough negative threads like that already. I just wanted to express my uncertainty at this point. When the new AppleTV was unveiled I was pretty excited. And when I heard that it was likely to have apps and that AirPlay would allow streaming of HTML5 content on the web, I was definitely getting one. But now the excitement is fading and I am having some concerns. First and foremost, I am not sure what to think about the lack of internal storage. I realize Apple wants to go with a completely streaming product, but I'm not sure I like the idea of my MacBook being on all the time during streaming. Maybe eventually all of our iTunes libraries will be stored on Apple's servers at their big server farm in North Carolina, and we will just stream it all over the internet. If this is the case, then problem solved. But until that time, I have to have my laptop on all the time to stream my iTunes. I have never had an Apple TV before, so who knows, maybe the instances of me wanting to stream from my Mac will be very limited. Maybe my primary usage will be Netflix and TV show rentals, making this a moot point. But it is difficult to predict. In the last week we have heard about Warner Brothers and NBC saying 99 cents is too little for rentals, and are not coming on board. This makes me worry that maybe other networks/studios will do the same thing. If only a fraction of the shows that I would want to rent actually come to the iTunes store, then there is less value there. I really really hope that the majority of content providers get on board very soon. So for better or worse these are my concerns. Some of you may be thinking the same things. I hope it all turns out the way I want it to, but only tme will tell. I guess the good thing is if I buy an ATV for $99, and development for it goes nowhere, at least I haven't invested much money.
