Saying there was a lot of excitement in the air when Steve Jobs unveiled Apple TV today is a total understatement. The Macworld crowd went wild over the new product, and people gathered around the lineup of monitors hooked up to the Apple TV device into the afternoon. I'm really excited about it, and it's sleek, innovative and chic (all the things I look for in electronics), but I'm such a TiVo addict I'm not sure I need it. I'll probably come around.


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.
