An Apple TV With a Blu-ray Player?

Rumors are flying fast and furious over what Steve Jobs will pull out of his blue-jean pocket a week from Tuesday at his annual speech at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. These include a movie rental service for iTunes, a super small notebook computer perhaps with a solid-state hard drive, a notebook docking station, and new features for the iPhone. Shaw Wu, an analyst with American Technology Research, suggested that Apple will start shipping some computers with Blu-ray high-definition DVD drives.
By itself, adding Blu-ray to Macs is nothing more than continuing to add features to justify the Mac price premium. But there is another move that Apple could make that could well be a game changer: introducing a new version of Apple TV with a built in Blu-ray player.

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.

it happening but that would be freaking sweet if it did.

Meus: I do Blu, do you?

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

Is this a concerted effort to drive people away from N4G? Two lots of ads posts on top of each other in a short space of time. Doubled-up. Alongside obtrusive video and banner ads. FFS. This site is going to lose everyone but the most die hard. Or force adblock use. Maybe that is the intention here where N4G has struck a deal with adblocking tools/designers?

After N4G sold to BGFG it’s become clear the site will never be the same. They push their own videogamer.com propaganda non stop. People should team up and start a new gaming site like how Resetera was born after the Neogaf fallout.

Been using Adblocker for years. Those ads were bad back then. I don't even want to know what it looks like these days. They did this to themselves.

Sort your shameless advertising out N4G. It's sickening.

Can you fix these ads showing double on the front page? It smells like amateur in here.

If there is an alternative site plz let me know 😏🤫. This is getting out of hand.

Looking for suggestions too.

I'd suggest a few, but, honestly, it's better if this community is kept here, "away from society" lol

It's more than just this ad spam; the admins' biases manipulate the actual news too.

Any time Phil says something, multiple articles make their way through so that we here go into the comments and complain about him/Xbox. Ad revenue, fuel from the console war.

Any time something major happens with PlayStation, mods go into full force. The Jim Ryan emails from the FTC hearings - buried. Articles failed for being duplicates; the one article that made it through to the front page didn't mention Jim Ryan's emails in the headline.

Jump to Jim Ryan suddenly announcing his plan to retire this week - same situation. Every single article from every outlet reporting on it could be seen in the Failed list. The one headline making it to the front page, did not include his retirement in the headline but was worded "New Management Structure"

Because this site swings so favorably PlayStation, they deliberately flood us with opportunities to slam Xbox, but *actually moderate* when any news comes out that's not positive for PS.

So you think this community is awful, it's because they are and have been manipulating how we get to see the news.
