One more thing! One more hobby :)

Apple TV introduced four years ago. Never been real hit. Number 1 thing people want is Hollywood movies & TV shows. They want everything in HD. They want lower prices for content. They don't want a computer on their TV. They don't want to manage storage. Don't want to sync to computer. They want something silent, cool, and small.
