The Apple TV was once revered as the device that could potentially change television for the better. Today, many people say the Apple TV is a product that is on its death bed. Often called a "hobby" product by it's maker (until the Google TV was announced), the Apple TV could be making a comeback if a new New York Times article is correct.
Apple TV is coming back and it will most definitely be the best it has ever been. Engadget has received a tip that the new Apple TV will tie in greatly with Apple's mobile offerings--think iPad and iPhone. Additionally, rumors are circulating that the innards of the device will greatly emulate that of the iPhone 4, meaning it might come equipped with an A4 processor and a smaller amount of flash storage--like a limited 16GB. The device will also be capable of a full 1080p, and the size of it is actually quite small with only a power socket and a video out.
Google has announced its intentions to invade the living room with an Android-powered media box and partners Intel, Sony and Logitech. Will Google TV finally be a wake-up call for Apple to do something real with Apple TV at long last?
