Reviews, Apple TV CPU

In brief: MacNN has reviewed ProTouch keyboard covers from iSkin as well as SyncTogether from Mark/Space, the recently-shipped Apple TV may use a new Intel media-centered chip instead of the expected Pentium M processor, PC Magazine has posted a how-to guide for copying music from an iPod onto a computer without downloading or purchasing any software, and Creative Manager Pro has released version 8.4.2 of its self-titled ad agency software and project management groupware. Reviewers have put the iSkin ProTouch keyboard covers ($25, shown at right) and SyncTogether 1.01 software ($50) through their paces to test the usefulness of the portable covers as well as the Mac-to-Mac synchronization software. iSkin's ProTouch comes in different colors and the company offers covers for Mac portables all the way back to the Pismo PowerBook. SyncTogether 1.01 works without a .Mac account via Bonjour to discover clients on a local network, synchronizing files belonging to different users on a single machine.

Apple TV CPU a new Intel CE 2110?

Industry watchers surmised since the Apple TV's release that the device was powered by an Intel Pentium M processor, but new developments from Intel's Beijing-based Developer Conference may contradict that assumption and could explain why Apple elected to delay the device.

Intel has unveiled a new "highly integrated media processor for the consumer electronics (CE) market segment that will power a new generation of devices, such as digital set top boxes and networked media players, and bring consumers advanced in-home information and entertainment services."

Copying music from iPods, Creative Manager Pro 8.4.2

A new how-to guide has surfaced on copying music from an iPod to a computer without downloading or purchasing any software. The guide is just a few steps, according to PC Magazine, and is simple to execute.... The self-titled Creative Manager Pro 8.4.2 ad agency and project management groupware offers a graphical view of job schedules, as well as improved support for Apple's Safari 2.0.4 Web browser.

    The Apple TV processor was made in 2004 from what I saw from breaking it apart. I sincerely doubt that piece of "news".
