Apple TV may be done
The Apple TV may be up for replacement, since Apple recently sent an email asking stores to destroy documentation and displays for the product, with a webcast to follow on Tuesday, an anonymous Apple reseller tells TUAW. An email supposedly sent to authorized resellers details that they must pull all Apple TV material, to send back to Apple with a September 30th deadline, at 5pm. The notice also mentions a "kick off," somehow related to the webcast.
While some rumors point to the webcast as the introduction of a replacement device, or a potential combination unit with the Mac mini, further information could indicate that the displays are merely being refreshed. It is odd, however, for Apple to pair a broadcast event with a simple documentation change.
