    Isn't there 3rd party software for the Photobridges? I remember reading something like that on either the Wired blogs or Engadget.

    Let's see - I have 3 of those plus two more in storage. I also have two out of production, obsolete Roku Photobridges that in some ways do a better job with photo display than the AppleTV (the AppleTV does a better job a slideshows and cool transitions but it does a worse job in just photo display).

    Huh? I think my posts about the glaring weaknesses and deficiencies of the ATV make me anything but a koolaid drinker or server.

    I've been accused of being biased towards Vudu. So I suppose I could be called a Vudu koolaid assistant.

    I guess I answered my question, it obviously isn't any good. And it definitely doesn't sound like it comes anywhere close to VUDU.

    Yea!!!

    I also seem to recall Jobs saying that all 100 titles wouldn't be available until the end of Feb. So with that caveat, until then they could get away with providing only 5 HD titles (like Directv does) without saying they mis-spoke.

    p.s. you should go to the Apple forum, there are a lot of unhappy campers there.

    ATV streams SD movies so they are watchable within about 30 seconds to 5 minutes after rental. HD movies are longer - I don't think they've said how much longer...Vudu is truly instant.

    And ATV HD rentals are only in 720p.

    I can't wait till Redwein tries to max out his bandwidth with all 5 Vudus!
