iPhone live 119: I want my Apple TV


Come on guys lets be serious this isnt like the iphone that a vast majority of people like no one but fanboys want this i actually like apple but i promise ill never see one of these anywhere i go

I agree. I want one, but I was one because I CAN, not for anything but that. I already stream netflix on my PS3 and my laptop. Also, everyone I know who has Netflix already has a way of viewing it (that's probably how they've BEEN using it...). It seems like it's buying something that enables you to buy other things. For me at least, It's just a nice thing to have because it looks nice, and is from Apple. I probably won't end up buying one because I really don't see it's features as being anything useful.. Like, do you really want to rent movies in HD? Netflix allows you to rent a DVD when it's released as well. And Do you REALLY want to rent TV shows? A lot of websites have copies of shows up-to-date and for free. And about the price, It shouldn't be more than 99 bucks, it should be less, it doesn't really do anything so spectacular....

Another podcast full of dumb analysis from a bunch of apple fanboys, butthurt that Android is growing in leaps in bounds. Georgia, manufacturers aren't making Android phones trying to fine one that works, they are making so many phones because the phones are selling. Do they not offer any credible economic courses up their Canada?

This was the first time listening to this podcast, and it's most defiantly my last. The amount of misinformation in this one show is absurd.
Android phone makers aren't trying to 'find the right phone' they already found quite a few hits, actually. and as technology changes, the phones will change.
iTunes doesn't allow AirPrint to work, and OS 10.6.5 should allow AirPrint to work.
Of course apple took an iPod touch and crammed it into a box, and modified the OS a bit.
I'm surprised that nobody mentioned that perhaps the reason the iPhone has more memory is because it's a damn phone, it has to be ready to receive text messages, phone calls, and voice mails. things the iPad or iPod touch don't do!
