With the jailbreak community this little decice could be the best streamer on the market. Quiet, small footprint, cheap and low power consumption. Who would have thought, using a mobile chip in a home theatre device? Amazing.

And as a real world example, look at the functionality that was squeezed out of the first WDHD and that was just a handful of third party developers with a very limited OS. The JB community trumps that by a wide margin and knows IOS inside and out. Very exciting stuff.

Technically, it's just a web page and Quicktime. So I guess I'd want an app for that or Safari and Quicktime.

If this gets flash and boxee, I will buy an Apple TV. I'd love to replace the old MacBook (read: Boxee Box) from my entertainment center and replace it with a tiny, beautiful Apple TV but I cannot rely simply on iTunes content or Netflix! Make it happen Dev team!!

Wireless TV Out. If it's on my iDevice, I'd like to be able to sling it to my Apple TV. Safari, video, music, games, search, mail, SMS, Face Time, etc.
This would practically negate the need, for me at least, of any apps specifically designed for Apple TV.

I don't need Boxee. It kind of sucks. But I REALLY want AirVideo. I would buy a new Apple TV in a heartbeat.

1º) Support for HDD external; MKV; 1080P

3º) deezer app
