The Apple TV of old -- the one that doesn't have a tiny, Siri-enabled remote, or any desire to play video games -- is no more. As MacRumors reports, the third-gen hardware is no longer listed on Apple's site, all but sealing its fate. Maybe you'll see one in a brick-and-mortar store -- but consider it a hanger-on. A remnant of the past, before tvOS and its fancy new apps were introduced. 9to5Mac has also obtained an email, sent by Apple to its employees and education partners, confirming the decision. So that's it. From here on out, it's all about the new, fourth-gen Apple TV.
