    Probably, just opening the iTV up for apps to be made for it, thus not being able to actually use any of the app store apps currently, only ones made specifically for the iTV, but could be wrong, I just can't see them packaging something that awesome for the $99 price point.

    Possibly, but they could be subsidizing the price with future app sales. (which they will only get if they open the full App Store to it)

    It would need a new app store... The current resolution of current apps is too bad.

    I would think that the iTV, as we are dreaming of it today, would end up being controlled by a remote control (perhaps a clickwheel?), but there would also be an iPhone/iPad/iPod touch app to control it in a much more Apple-esque way. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.

    So there would be a cursor on the screen? Why didn't they just make the Magic Trackpad more couch friendly so it would be more appealing for someone who has one to buy an iTV since they already have all the necessary equipment?

    Prehaps this will be a gaming console at a small. You know maybe they will package a video game remote control with this which will one day make it's debut into the bigger games and already we've seen EA and Activision make games for the iPod and iPhone why not iTV.

    Haha wow. I missed the word "concept" at first and I almost rushed to apple.com to see the awesome new screenless iPod Touch!

    I thought that the iPhone its self will be the controller? Or the iPod Touches, that would mean the millions of people who have iOS Devices will be eligible to play?

    Or maybe the magic Trackpad?

    the mock up that was on the front page has potential, but I think doing a iPod touch bundle makes more sense, maybe at least the 2g MC one.
