The AppleTV may do to the television world what the iPod did to the MP3 player. It allows for the streaming of video content from a Macintosh or Windows computer, and then does everything a standard DVR does. It also can read a lot of other video/audio formats, and can natively output over an HDMI signal. The unit also sports a 40GB hard drive to store content locally. It also uses the latest WiFi standard, 802.11N, to connect to the internet (the very same one Apple is charging $2 for Macintosh customers to use). We can expect to see the £199/$299 unit in mid/late March.

Yep. Looks good. I've had terrible troubles with Netgear MP101 which is Audio. It's wireless, but doesn't even connect to a Netgear Prosafe 11g wireless router. Blxxdy aweful. The only connection is through hardwire... which defeats the purpose. OR by adding a second, old, 11b wireless. It will connect to that! Blxxdy stupid. But that was enough to discourage me going to ANY video box. Somehow, I get the impression that the Applebox will, just, work! Count me in.
