When the new version launched, Apple CEO Steve Jobs acknowledged the device had not been a huge hit with customers. The latest refresh made the Apple TV more streaming-focused with Netflix, YouTube, Flickr, and Mobile Me integration. The TV extension has HDMI, Ethernet, optical audio, USB ports, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and a lower $99 price tag.
Apple also recently added AirPlay support with the iOS 4.2 update, allowing users to wirelessly stream their music, video, and photos from their iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Users can also control their Apple TV with their iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch using the free Remote app (similar to how Google TV works with the voice-enabled Android app).
