    OMG you can take photos in real time? That is so exciting!!!!! And you can put it in your purse too!!!! This is the cooolest thing E-VER. I'm going to order all the Justin Bieber albums off iTunes and give this Apple TV thing a spin.

  6. ...I bought a jukebox that we opened up to run without coins and we could swap CD's at will.

    ..that was about 15 years ago.

    Everyone brought their own music...quality much higher than compressed audio too. Was reasonably portable too. Used to lay it down in the back of a station wagon. Good times.
