Is AppleTV Xbox without the “X?”

    January 9, 2007

Phil Waligora, who works at Microsoft, is watching Steve Jobs’ keynote (I’m not, but am trying to check in here and there) and calls me out, wondering if I’ll say the just announced AppleTV is innovative.

Oh, Phil, haven’t you gotten the memo? Everything Apple does is innovative. Even if Microsoft’s stuff is better (and three years earlier). Sorry to break the news to you.

But, seriously, I’m not throwing away my Xbox 360. It does that and lets me play games and look at the photos stored on the box upstairs.

Now, I am gonna take a look at iPhone and seriously consider upgrading to that. Gizmodo and Engadget are going nuts with coverage.

Is Engadget right? Is the Apple TV only 720p HD? That really, really, really sucks. If that’s true this thing is dead on arrival. Apple, the entire industry is ahead of you if that’s true.

The iPhone looks really cool, though.
