My 5 cents on New Apple TV

I'm probably going crazy around here. I have been watching all kinds of speculation about Apple TV. Lots of people are disappointed because Apple hasn't announced any iOS Apps for it.

However, I see this a little bit different. Apple has announced AirPlay. For me, this is clearly the path that Apple will follow to deliver Apps to Apple TV. AirPlay has been announced as a way for you to stream your video content from your iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch) to your Apple TV.

From the broadcasting perspective, it makes no difference at all streaming your video/photos or just your own Screen. Adding Apps directly to Apple TV would require storage, what Apple clearly stated to be an issue for consumers. However, broadcasting the iPad screen to Apple TV would allow one to have a fancy remote (iPad) connected directly to your TV for controlling nearly anything. Apps would be available from the iOS devices, as usual, with the option for playing on the TV, via Apple TV, when needed.

This would fix the storage problem and would make the Apple products even better connected. Makes sense?
