    They want to dominate the family room, and they could with that one simple device. The wireless hub for your computer and your family room (tv, sterio, etc.) I hope this happens one day.

    It is a good idea, but it would have a much smaller market than each has on its own. Also, many people don't want a networked TimeMachine Drive, or can't support N, or aren't using Leopard.

    No, why the Mac mini and AppleTV are not one device.

    Maybe because it doesn't make much sense for a device intended for your TV to also need to be near your internet source (to act as a router)...

    Apple TV and the APx are one device. Airtunes was added in take2.
