  1. Apple is reportedly readying some big changes for its "hobby" set-top box project. According to sources "very close" to the company talking to Engadget, the next generation Apple TV will shift focus from local to cloud-based storage, while building on Apple's strengths as a mobile device company. The new hardware was described as an iPhone without a screen," as it is based on the same A4 processor as the upcoming model with only 16GB of storage and running iPhone OS 4.0.

    Yeah, Its a good OS, no doubt about it, but its a MOBILE OS not a fully fledged all singing all dancing Operating System. Please Apple, don't start making your Macs with "built-in" iPhone OS to use your apps on, otherwise this is just getting stupid.

    Punkid and Burty - its just going on the AppleTV, not a real Mac. The AppleTV doesn't even have a full fledged OS X on it now, nor does it need it. As far as complaining about things running iPhone OS, well the same thing is happening with Google and their OS, its supposed to be on TVs soon.
