AppleTV

Quite a few people have talked about how nice the AppleTV. Even Leo Laporte has commented on just how quiet the box is. I've been able to play with one for short bit and have two complaints:
  • It's more or less locked to iTunes (bleh!)
  • It runs hot, almost too hot to touch.

I'm not saying that I don't like it, just that it needs improvement (which some have already undertaken). While it is probably a good choice for first-time non-geeks, I'm going to stick with SageTV and my MediaMVP boxes.
