The rumor mill has new tidbits about the new Apple TV. Engadget is adding new rumors to their previous rather exciting Apple TV reports. The idea of a $99 Apple TV based on the iPhone 4 CPU with iOS could be a hot solution for getting internet onto TVs the big way.
Apple is going to rename the new Apple TV box to iTV according to Engadget. iTV makes a lot more sense as it fits with iPhone, iPod and iPad, but aren't there tons of trademark issues? iTV is a pretty common name for TV related things like TV stations.

Interestingly, if you search for itv on Google, the Apple TV product page is ranked on the first page.

The Apple iTV is also rumor to only handle 720p video and to offer access to apps. The limitation to 720p is odd, but maybe this is not a technical limitation, but part of a deal with movie and TV studios.

About the Geek Mind

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.
