Review: Second-generation Apple TV

updated 03:55 am EDT, Fri October 1, 2010

In-depth look at the second-generation Apple TV

Steve Jobs has modestly described the Apple TV project as just a "hobby," but it is a pastime the company has continued to enjoy in the four years since its "iTV" endeavors were first announced. The redesigned box marks a shift in overall strategy, as the integrated hard drive has been dropped. The system is now completely reliant on iTunes and iOS, streaming content from a computer or mobile device rather than playing it from an internal drive contained in the box. In our full review, we'll take a closer look at the new features and potential limitations of the new hardware.

    Photo sharing issue

    Has anyone else run into issues sharing iPhoto libraries? For some reason mine works in every facet but the photo slideshows.

    No TV Shows in Canada

    I already had an Apple TV before, but I bought this new one because I wanted to be able to rent TV shows. But unfortunately after I get it home, I discover that you can't rent TV shows in Canada! What's up with that?
