So we had a chance to spend a little time with the new and improved (and dirt cheap) Apple TV, and we like what we see. The streaming was speedy and extremely clear during our demo, and the overall speed of the interface seemed really solid. We also learned that the box is indeed 720p (just as we'd

Steve Jobs just pulled out the world famous \"one more thing\" for nothing other than... a new Apple TV. It's now a streaming-focused device (as we predicted months ago) in a small matte black enclosure we're calling \"the hockey puck.\" It has HDMI, Ethernet, optical audio, and USB plugs around bac

According to Bloomberg, \"three people familiar with the plan\"

Pioneer's GPS products don't make huge waves in the Stateside navigation market, but it's actually got some fairly broad patents on route guidance and mapping, and apparently Garmin's infringing them. That's at least the story Pioneer's telling to the US International Trade Commission, where it's

Reportedly, BBC, ITV and BT will be locking hands in order to develop a set-top-box that would \"deliver IPTV over one's broadban
