An interesting analysis of a future Apple TV generation. However, I do think the AppleTV needs to support full-HD or at minimum 1080i to be useful for *everyone*. Why? Well, a lot of people own 1080i (marketed as full-HD by the way) camcorders and they would love to play their own movies in their native resolution on the AppleTV.
It would also mean the rediculous limit of iMovie must be removed, since for some stupid reason there's no way to export a movie in the native resolution (instead it scales down to I think 720p max).
