That forum sees a lot of activity, but if you really want to discuss it here, you can do it in this thread (for lack of a dedicated "catch all" or otherwise off forum topic thread).
Do you really think of the Apple TV as just another flat screen TV?
That is like calling the iPad just another portable. Apple's iOS devices always come with a software ecosystem that impact the market they enter.
But again.. not a huge deal one way or the other to me. I do think it is leaving a massive blind spot to HD media consumption to treat the Apple TV as just another piece of hardware.
