This is part based on hardware speculation. That of the Tivo like device people keep mentioning as Apple bringing out. Well Apple should have brought it out this MWNY. As part and parcel of the .Mac 100 dollar fee Apple should have included the ability for their Tivo like device to connect to the central server and be able to download programming updates. Hook that puppy upto a broadband connection and Apple can deliver Quicktime media straight to your TV set. Imagine watching the keynote Quicktime only but on your TV set through the set-top box tivo unit. Microsoft plans on doing that with their Xbox. Where the heck is Apple and their unit? Add 802.11b so the unit can talk with the computer upstairs or to the Airport basestation routing the broadband connection. They should provide digital out on that unit so you can plug it into your digital receiver for music and more. Come on Apple, get with the program.
