Actually, this was a music and video event, both of which are supported by both the ipods and the aTV.This was a music event about the iPod, not Mac OS, not Mac hardware, not Apple TV.
Exactly.I suppose they could have announced the WiFi iTMS store for AppleTV...
TV is NOT an iPod. The TV is newer than the old iPods, which needed an update.Exactly.
I loved today's event and thought Apple made some AWESOME offerings. But whoever is saying "this was an iPod event, blah blah, blah" well to them I say HELLOOOOOO the iPod uses iTunes JUST LIKE THE APPLE TV uses iTunes! There's no reason why they shouldn't have made an update available for the Apple TV along with iPods and the iPhone to support the new WiFi store. Hopefully they release an update fairly soon. I really see no excuse otherwise unless they truly are gonna drop the Apple TV, which I hope they don't. I love mine!
Who cares? They "updated" the iPhone too but its newer than the Apple TV! So there! Point is - iTunes is seeing updates for all the hardware that uses it. This should have included the Apple TV in my opinion.TV is NOT an iPod. The TV is newer than the old iPods, which needed an update.
That's what I'm hoping for.Then again, you might have something with the movie rental and video purchasing thing - maybe they want to make a special splash about that separately. One can hope.
I just got an TV this past weekend and it smokes the Hauppauge Media MVP I had. I too was hoping for some news on the TV.I'm thinking there'll be something in October. With Leopard should come support for Blue-Ray, and that will put Apple in the HD business. Perhaps at that time we'll start seeing HD content showing up on iTMS? One can only hope, but there's still the issue of file size. I think the 802.11n has gone a long way for allowing 720 files to be downloaded, but it'll probably still take 4 or 5 hours for a 2 hour movie.
The developer copies of Leopard's Movie Player.app (which is replacing DVD Player.app) have preferences for both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. Apple's also a member of the Blu-Ray Group (or what ever it's called). Of course, we won't know for certain until Leopard is released. Hold your breath!So Leopard will have support for BD DVD? What type of support?
Thanks. I'll be getting my first Mac, a mini, as soon as Leopard is released. I tried the link in your signature but it didn't work. Do you have an updated link or maybe the server is down.The developer copies of Leopard's Movie Player.app (which is replacing DVD Player.app) have preferences for both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray.

Is it the studios?? All the big names WB - FOX - PARAMOUNT etc all make the same movies for the world to watch, not just the US - must be European law I expect,AFAIK, it's the studios that are making this a slow process. I'm pretty sure Apple would gladly love to sell you guys movies if they could.
Jobs said at the iMac intro in an interview that ATV news is coming. I don't think they'll drop it. It's selling. It's in a lot of retail outlets, even freaking Sam's Club.Why was there nothing about the ATV today
Is Apple going to drop the ATV?
