Apple TV blows in a smaller form factor

"yes I know it sucks, now buy it, buy it!!"

So Apple unveiled some new products this morning. It was all a bit ho-hum. The I pod touch got crazy thin, the shuffle added buttons again and the nano looks weird and completely un-useable all pretty much status quo. However they did unveil a new updated Apple TV. It's insanely great. Take it away huff po.

"The new Apple TV announced Wednesday will only let people rent, not buy, content. For first-run high-definition movies the day they come out on DVD, people will have to pay $4.99. High-definition TV show rentals will be 99 cents.

The revamped Apple TV, which will be available within a month, will give people access to the high-definition version of movies just released on DVD, though he didn't say which movie studios have agreed to include their titles for streaming.

People who watch content from Netflix Inc. streamed over the Internet can also access their "instant" queue through Apple TV. Jobs said only News Corp.'s Fox and The Walt Disney Co.'s ABC have been willing to license their shows for streaming so far, but he said he hoped others would join once the service gains popularity."

That sounds so retarded it's awesome. Now I'm all for some sort of a la cart programming but paying a dollar to rent TV shows that are broadcast on over the air networks is a total scam. A scam that only the most deranged apple addicts could justify.

oh yeah it also only supports 720p not 1080. you suck Jobs, why did you bury the apple IIgs? Were you afraid it of how awesome it was compared to your sucky mac?
