    It seems nice, but why couldn't they have

    added wireless "n" to it which would make it even more useful than AppleTV. I guess you can use a USB dongle, though, if necessary.

    Nice

    This is what the new ATV should have been. They need hard drives so you don't have to have a computer running to play your iTunes media.
