Apple has announced the availability (starting May 31st) of a build-to-order Apple TV with a 160-gigabyte hard drive, priced at $399. The original Apple TV will continue to be sold for $299.
Also announced was the upcoming (mid-June) capability of Apple TV units to stream and play videos from YouTube. This feature will be added via a free software update to existing units.
Sorry for the delay in posting updates; I do MacHELP as a hobby and the “day job” has gotten in the way so to speak.
Anyway, a ton of new updates from Apple in the past couple of weeks.
