The recent ‘Take 2’ Apple TV update has saved the small square box under my telly from EBay. 1080p output, rental HD movies, and now streaming internet radio have given it a real lease of life.
Now I realise that it’s meant to be just a media extender, but as it’s just a Mac under the hood i’m hoping we get an SDK soon, then we could have a few new features like
– RSS browsing sync’d with Newsgator with an iTunes-sourced soundtrack
– London Underground line information without needing my Mac or digital text
– Optionally playing music without displaying the flipping artwork
