Apple TV: bringing iTunes to your big screen
Aside from the iPhone that’s getting a lot of raves at the
CES MacWorld today, the AppleTV isn’t gonna miss a beat as well.
For only $299, you get a 40GB device that connects to your TV via an HDMI port or component video and audio ports. Its built-in, 802.11b/g & 802.11n wireless capability syncs your iTunes library to any Mac or PC in the house. Comes with USB 2.0, Ethernet and powered by an Intel CPU.
Not sure if 40GB is big enough (why didn’t they put in at least 120?) but I know I can hook up my laptop to my TV and play everything off of it. Besides, I already have that Samsung 19″ LCD to watch movies with.
On the other hand, I’m pretty sure tons of people are dying to get that iPhone. If traffic to this blog from Google searches for “buy Apple iPhone” is any indication, that’s a lot.
