Apple TV upgrade to keep prices

Apple's imminent Apple TV update received its price in a last-minute rumor Tuesday night. It would keep the $99 price of before in 9to5's tip. Also mentioned was a $39 price for an unknown accessory with a B82 model number, likely a reference to a new video adapter cable.

An additional report following out of MacRumors has touched on the next iPad and points to it getting a $99 AppleCare+ package. Similar to the iPhone, it would hike the price (here from $79) but include accidental damage and apply a $49 deductible to any incident.

Aside from the Apple TV pricing, most of these extras wouldn't likely be mentioned during the event itself but would appear in the online Apple Store immediately afterwards.

Supporting plans for the next iPad, AT&T's main page is now teasing an "exciting new addition to our line-up." Its mention came hours at most after a similar Verizon teaser and provides the same sort of e-mail marketing sign-up offer. Its placement is unusual, since there's no mention of the teaser on AT&T's Wireless page, where it would be most relevant.

Both AT&T and Verizon may have added incentive to build momentum for the next iPad, since it may carry LTE and give a much stronger reason to pay for cellular data.

    Ads between RSS & Article

    MacNN - I don't know if you're aware of this, but there's an ad page being inserted between your RSS feed and the article itself. It's extraordinarily annoying, and threatens to convince me to remove MacNN from my RSS feeds (and thus my news site reading) altogether. Just a bit of feedback; take it or leave it.
