    If it was about this price - it may start to actually be interesting...

    The App Store angle could actually drive this, the problem with the original apple tv was that it had nothing unique, and did nothing at all well.

    The further apple get away from their PC model, the better they will do imho!

    Google TV should, hopefully, be much more open than the Apple offering. I don't want to be locked in to itunes as my only means of content delivery; I'd much prefer to be able to run my own DVB-T/S/T2/S2 back-end and then have a front-end that's able to access it.
    Apple do make nice consumer devices but at the loss of control as to how I use that device will always put me off them.

    Ideally, I'm hoping for someone to look at the MythTV client-server approach and aim to build something similar. Have the heavy back-end capable of recording shows and downloading and storing content from the cloud married (bigamously) to front-end(s) under all the televisions in the house and even to ipad-like devices that can act as front-ends.

    $99... plus lock-in to large monthly subscription no doubt. Pass.

    Gimme a shout when you can run something like Boxee on it, then I'll have a look.
