Apple TV: The Other Product In The Keynote

by Juan on January 12th, 2007

That’s what the Apple TV was relegated to, “The Other Product” status. It’s not to say that the Apple TV is a bad product. The iPhone just over shadowed the Apple TV. It wasn’t as revolutionary as the iPhone.

What’s the Apple TV you ask? Why it’s the center of your entertainment life. The Apple TV connects to your TV via HDMI or component audio and video ports. You then pair your Mac or PC’s at home (up to 5) and it then syncs your iTunes content to the Apple TV. This allows you to watch your media in the comforts of your living room. Sync your media via WiFi or ethernet connection. The Apple TV supports the draft 802.11 n protocol. This means super fast transfers.

Apple TV also comes with a 40GB hard drive which allows you to save data in the unit. This actually cache’s the media to prevent lags from occuring while watching, listening or viewing your photos.

Now having seen the Apple TV specs and description at the Apple web site, I find it good but it’s not a must have for me. In this world I live in, a gadget seriously needs to compete for my dollars/pesos. It needs to be compelling enough for me to part with my hard earned money. Somehow I just don’t see the Apple TV that much of a must have. It would be nice to watch my media on the TV but hey, I don’t even have that great of a TV. So I guess that should be bought first.
