Jonathan Gitlin of Ars Technica writes: "In the usual Apple way, the revised Apple TV was announced during the keynote, but has taken a while to arrive; longer even than a laptop ordered by Ms. Cheng, so Steve's two weeks turned into a month before the software update finally appeared.
Yes, you read that right, for the update to the Apple TV was achieved through the writing of code, not the soldering of transistors. That means that early adopters aren't left out in the cold, and unlike iPod Touch users who want to check their e-mail without visiting jailbreakme.com, they aren't asked for $20 either. So, unless you're an early adopter who's had the case off their Apple TV and have hacked it to Canada and back, the Apple TV 2.0 is the only show in town. We've already taken a first look at the Apple TV 2.0 over at Infinite Loop, but we're going to look at it more closely in this review."
