I am a great fan of the Apple TV product (no.. not the rumored TV itself.. but the nice cute black box). On its own, it is a great tool for use in United States where you can get TV streaming and iTunes movies and Netflix and whatever.. but in Singapore, we do not have that. Instead, I paired it up with a XBMC software and it made beautiful amazing media player. The interface makes it so nice to watch… See here and here…
the version that I can install XBMC on is the original Apple TV2 which is 720p.
Recently (okie not too recently), Apple released a 1080p version of the Apple TV. So far, I think there are still no jailbreak ability for that Apple TV (sob) so that I can install XBMC on it to enjoy 1080p stuff.. sob.
