"Television still is the critical missing component that Apple needs to make this product a hit. The product needs both a PVR and especially a PVR that does HDTV. With your only options for TV being DVDs or low res quality video iTunes (which might look ok on a small handheld device but will look horrible on those 43' plasmas that everyone's buying), this product still lags behind Microsoft's Media Center PC.
Of course, throw in an Apple buyout of TiVo and put a high definition TiVo in the box along with Front Row and you'd have the hit of the decade. How does that old song go? Oh yeah, 'You've got the brains, I've got the looks, let's make lots of money.' "
