Apple TV - new and improved, and very cheap too
A source close to Apple (which either means Someone Leaking Info Who Doesn't Want To Lose Their Job or Someone Making Things Up) as spoken about details concerning a new version of the Apple TV.
Apparently, this has been in the pipeline long before Google announced their intentions of becoming a player in the TV market and will be synced up with Apple's mobile platforms.
Engadget reckon that the TV will be based on the iPhone 4, with the same internals, 'down to that A4 CPU and a limited amount of flash storage - 16GB to be exact - though it will be capable of full 1080p HD'.
The biggest news is just how little it will cost. $99 to be precise.
Basically, it looks like this gadget will be all about streaming stuff and the Apple TV will ditch the current OS X-lite as a operating system, instead, using the the iPhone OS, spreading it thickly in a 52-inch plasma screen.
Having apps and internet on your TV sounds like a good enough idea, but is it any better than having a swish TV rigged up to a Wii or XBox that's hooked up to your wireless connection? Still, under a hundred dollars is a good price, provided there's no hidden costs, right?
What do you make of this then? A waste of time? Think it sounds brilliant? Let loose in the comments to say how much you love Apple products or, indeed, how much you hate people who hate Apple products and the like.
