In my inbox today was an email from Apple that the Apple TV has been shipped. Arrival time March 23rd.
As reported Apple had to delay the Apple TV end of February to a mid-March time frame.
So there is nothing holding us back to organize the Apple TV target="_blank">gadget model shoot. Expect the photos soon.
The Apple TV box has what it takes to be a real success for Apple. Analysts already are predicting huge adoption for the Apple TV box.
Amazon.com has still no shipping date for the Apple TV. They also just sell it for the standard price of $299, so you can also directly order the media streamer from Apple.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
