    I'm still hoping that when they refresh, they'll include a software update for the current  TV line. I'd love to install iOS 4 on mine...

    Wasn't Apple TV called iTV internally at Apple before it was released? I remember a Jobs keynote where he keeps calling Apple TV iTV.

    At $99 I can see this being quite popular if they sell it right. What is necessary is streaming. At that price they can't include a hard drive of any kind. Probably only a small amount of flash, for apps and the firmware itself. 720p also makes sense because the streaming will likely be wireless, and even with N, wifi is just plain old slow. Ethernet would be a nice option. This could function just like a media center extender, and of course iTunes rentals and purchases, stored on network computers and streamed to the iTV. Cool.

    Make sense. iOS is for iDevices, Apple OSX is for Apple devices. I said it was dumb that they finally got the name right AFTER it was revealed that it would be coming to the next Apple TV, which would negate the name.

    ok the big question, are they going to do an OS or should I say an iOS for the current apple tv? or is it going to be just for the new device?

    will the new iOS let you run MLB app? my apple tv is "jailbroken" to run boxee and I love the fact I can watch MLB.tv on it since uverse doesnt offer an MLB package.

    questions questions questions

    Yep there's no way they will call it ITV due to the fact that England has a tv station called this.(itv itv1 itv2 etc etc) If anyone else remembers apple wanting to name apple tv itv when they first realsed it.
    This is BS
    That's one i product apple can't add that *** little i to.

    the current appleTV has a hard drve, but you do NOT have to use it. Just sync it in itunes and stream from itunes. no need to put anything on the apple tv hard drive. flashing it (atv flash) makes it a lot more enjoyable.

    Will it really?!

    So apple is so powerful that trademark infringement law cannot be applied to them?!

    iTV is already a registered tradmark

    We all have seen that that Apple works it's way around trademarks. Take a look at iPhone, iPad, Apple, and the other trademarks from other companies (Cisco) it used.

    What grounds does this report have too? I mean Apple could be using a different name anyway.

    I wonder how this would work. It is not like a television.

    Apple could use iTelevision as their trademark.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
