Those crafty brutes over at Gizmodo have roughly stripped a new AppleTV unit of its slick packaging and - just to really drive the embarrassment home - they've photographed the whole damn trauma. Frankly, while pleasantly enough designed, it's not exactly the most eye-stunning of gadgets; there's only so much visual magic you can confer with a silver slab.
More distressing, however, is the absence of cables - aside from the power-cord, that is. Remember to factor that in to any intended purchase.
Shouldn't be long until the reviews start creeping out; I wonder how the AppleTV will stand up in comparison to existing products from companies with a far more established track-record in media streaming than Apple?
