The next AppleTV will probably be a TV
Does anyone else think that v2 or v3 of AppleTV is not going to be just a box but instead a TV (or technically a tv-sized internet connected monitor running a native OS)? If Apple is truly going to close the circuit they need a large screen in the living room. An AppleTV-style buddy box or mac mini plugged into a HD TV isn't going to cut it. Tablet is a great intimate media device that continues to make media portable, but even w/ a stand, it's not going to replace five hours a day of lean back. iPhone/tablet/touch become remotes.
