Munster: AppleTV Ready For Its Close-Up - BusinessWeek: Arik Hesseldahl nails it:
"As I argued in February, the most important change that should come to AppleTV is a development environment for applications, similar to the iPhone. Not only should the device be opened up to developers, but to the many streams of video content that populate the Web. If itâ€™s on the Web, it should be available on your TV set, via AppleTV, pure and simple. And the people who will bring those services to your TV? Third party software developers."
Gene Munster? Not so much.
