Users Seem Pleased With Apple TV

The much anticipated and delayed Apple TV finally arrived on shelves and at people's doorsteps late last week and the reactions are all pretty good.
The original ship date for the Apple TV was February 20th, but even with the machine showing up more than a month late, fans from the Apple and PC world seem collectively pleased. Says PC World:

To say that Apple TV is the world's best media streaming device could be considered faint praise, the tech equivalent of calling someone the world's tallest midget. After all, most previous versions of these devices, which take music, video, and photos from your PC and play them on your TV and stereo, have been unreliable, hard to use and generally shunned by the buying public. Apple has managed to rise above that kind of failure with its typical mantra: Keep it simple and make it pretty.

What is it?

Apple TV connects to your TV via an HDMI port or component video and audio ports. It's built-in, superfast 802.11 wireless capability syncs your iTunes library to any Mac or PC in the house. So, whatever is on your Apple TV stays in sync: Anytime you change your library in iTunes, it changes on Apple TV — wirelessly, automatically. You can get Apple TV for $299.

I was out on Saturday night and passed by the Apple store, so of course my tech addicted Hubby was right up against the glass. It was near 11:00, and the Apple employees hadn't left yet because they were all still there playing with the Apple TV even though the store closed at 9. :P They all looked pretty excited!
