Apple TV Sells Out, Becomes iTV
Well it was fun while it lasted. The once famed Apple TV, the media device that never really found a strong enough niche to amount to the status of something beyond what Apple CEO once called a “Hobbyist device” is about to undergo a major shift in both focus and content.
According to Engadget, it looks like we will be seeing good and bad changes made to the device formally known as Apple TV. On the plus side, a better name change by adding the infamous “i” in from of the world TV. Secondly, there will be iPad widget functionality coming to this little box as well. The downside of course is that you are going to lose 1080p resolution, in exchange for Roku/Netflix like streaming functionality.
