Apple TV Reinvents Itself, Has Lower Price


Apple TV didn't make much of a splash back in 2006, but the splatter should be a bit larger now with their new $99.00 version. The new palm-size box features HDMI, USB, Toslink and Ethernet connections. Wireless, the remote even resembles an older iPod. Movies will be offered at $4.99 while TV shows will be commercial-free and only $.99 apiece.

While there is no monthly fee involved beyond Netflix, you can also stream videos from your iPhone or iPad with its free app. This one isn't perfect either, as only 720p HD is supported as is limited network TV.

Thumbs Up or Down For Apple TV?


While we don't get to review firsthand as many products as we would like, Dave Caolo received an Apple TV for Christmas and shares his thoughts about the first two months with the gadget. His positives includes the look of it, easy hook up and navigation and the HD content. His negatives? Mostly the charge for watching TV episodes and how he hasn't yet adapted to the way he receives his audio/video sources. Those who remember 45 records can surely see his point of view. Dave suggests that Apple come up with a subscription service. What do you guys think?

It may be that boxee is considering coming up with its own branded set-top box. At this point, you can only get their entertainment service by installing it on your Apple TV or TV-connected PC or Mac. The company wants to know what you think about it. Should they build a better box and put their service in it? By the way, they have released a new version for Mac and should come up with another for Apple TV soon, so check with the site to see if you need an update.

(Thanks, Darren)
