    So I was at the Apple Store the other day and I was told that you could not use a wireless bluetooth keyboard and mouse with Apple TV. Is that true. I would seem like a logical thing to be able to use in order to search for content in the iTunes Store and typing passwords and such. I've considered getting an Apple TV but it'd be nice to be able to pair my Apple wireless keyboard and trackpad with it.

    You can only use a Bluetooth keyboard with the Apple TV. It does not support other pointing devices such as a mouse or trackpad.

    Oh okay. Thanks for the quick reply. Do you think the Apple TV will get any major updates anytime soon or would it be fine to grab one now?

    The hardware release cycle for the Apple TV is unknown and hard to predict at this time.

    Hmm okay. Just seems like they haven't updated it in a long time.
