But I really wish it had Pandora. I really would like to see Hulu on one of these boxes apple or otherwise. The Roku, now that they’ve dropped their price and are going to be upgrading soon via firmware is also looking very appealing.

Now, the new AppleTV has some appeal to me.

I like the fact that the AppleTV won’t be available for a month. That gives me time to buy the iPad first!

To rent a Just-to-DVD movie would cost me $5 when I can just go to redbox or netflix and get it for $1/day. I’m not seeing a very good deal here. Maybe it’s just me.
