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. If it wasn’t for Boxee, would anyone even be using this thing still? It’s so drastically underpowered and overpriced…hopefully Apple does improve it, if only to motivate Microsoft to get back on it.



Gene Munster,managing director and senior research analyst at Piper Jaffray, claims it will not only pick up a live TV signal, but also has DVR programming and can sync with a host of other Apple products like iPods, iPhones and Macs. All good stuff but is there any proof of this? Only that he has stick his balls very hugely on the line in making such a prediction, and some people think he must have been briefed by Apple to make such claims.
