I wouldn’t mind having this!

Apple TV Take 2: $229, No Computer Required, Direct Rentals (Netflix Screwed) [Macworld 2008]: “

appletv3.jpgHoly crap, Jobs admitted Apple TV failed at getting computer content to the square screen. Apple TV Take 2 requires no computer, you can rent from iTunes directly from the box—movies and music—and it’s only $229. Movies are available in HD Dolby 5.1 (finally!), and it does podcasts, audio and video, and photos from Flickr and .Mac direct to the box. HD movies are a buck more than standard ($4.99, so worth it). You can actually preview movies now. Startup even when streaming is fast, under 5 seconds. Yay, search. Photo browser is prettier, though functionally the same. And it’s all a free software upgrade. No new hardware required! Cheaper price starts today, software update available in 2 weeks.
