Did the original AppleTV sell any units at all? I heard it sucks. Dont try to justify a crappy electronic by putting blu-ray in it. That would just be a crappy marketing technique. I could see if they made a GOOD AppleTV that this would be awesome, but no Apple, just no.

Steve: Yeah, I do Blu too

Mac users: We also do Blu.

lol those are 2 totally different companies. I dont see how them put together can do much more then they both are right now.

The equation then becomes
Apple + Sony = Pomme + Sony
