Interesting announcement of upcoming products from Onkyo. I’m not sure if I’m a fan of every CE device including all these various tie-ins to online content providers.

Apple TV to get an upgrade – Maybe, Maybe Not

It’s always interesting to see random articles that appear. This time up is this report from a research analyst in regards to improvements he forsees with the AppleTV, something which hasn’t been changed, improved or evolved at all in quite a while.
