Almost every recent Apple event has been preceded by rumors of a big Apple TV update and yesterday's WWDC was no different. The rumor mill was expecting a full-blown app store for Apple's set-top box, but instead the Apple TV was mentioned only in passing, primarily to demonstrate AirPlay.
That lack of an update wasn't that surprising to me, but it means my wish list for an overhauled Apple TV from earlier this year is still largely unfulfilled. As good as the current Apple TV is (I like the current model a lot; see my full review), there's plenty of room for improvement, especially with competitors like Roku and Xbox 360 providing compelling alternatives.
Here's what I'm still hoping will eventually make its way to the Apple TV.
