iPod Nano
iPod Shuffle

talk about being really cynical,

to be honest im surprised that Apple TV has hardly any sales.. what with the high price tag and lack of truly innovative functionality.

Also, im afraid i dont understand your "crusty english teacher" comment, but to be honest they have very little to do with the post so... :-/.... try to leave it out

Apple TV

In reply to: wow

i don't think the selling point is so much innovative functionality as it is having a device that works with itunes, and fits into the whole ipod/itunes universe.

What do you mean?

In reply to: wow

The Apple TV is a truly innovative product that lets you watch TV in your living room.

iTV is useful: but I dont think innovation.

In reply to: What do you mean?

I do love the idea of my macs media streaming right to a nice widescreen, but since all of my iTunes bought items are in a 320x240 they would be terrible to look at on a 52" screen Sad

Plus, I dont think streaming media wirelessly is all that new. In fact I know it isnt, so I cant say that iTV is innovative.

But... I do want one. And like the person before me said, it doesnt need to be innovative its just the usefulness of having direct-tv-iTunes connectivity that makes it appealing.

Sounds sad to learn in England when you put it that way. I used "belmont..." to be sarcastically dark sounding.
