The Scoop on AppleTV

If someone asked me to describe in one sentence what AppleTV is, I’d say, “It’s an iPod for your TV.”  And believe it or not, it’s really that simple.  

The unit’s a sleek machine, less than half the size of a standard DVD player, and has the familiar Apple logo on top.  One thing to be clear about: AppleTV is not a DVR.  It’s not a media center or a PVR.  And that’s where AppleTV falls short.  This is a product that, right out of the gate, has limited usage.
