Web browsing and Last.fm coming to new Apple TV via hack

Posted in Apple TV by Conner Flynn on November 18th, 2010

The new Apple TV is pretty disappointing since it is so limited. It sits collecting dust like many Wiis do. So if Apple doesn’t decide to release Apps for it in the near future, jailbreakers certainly will. In fact, some hackers have managed to get a web browser running on the new Apple TV and also added Last.fm integration.

The latest apps were created by the folks over at Firecore, and they will be releasing a package for Apple TV called aTV Flash. A beta of the package should be released within the next couple of weeks.

New Apple TV gets torn apart

Posted in Apple TV by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2010

The newly shipping Apple TV has just undergone it’s first autopsy from iFixit, revealing the device’s hidden specs and innards. It looks like the inside of Apple TV has a lot in common with other iOS devices, including the iPhone and iPad.

There’s 8 GB of NAND flash memory on board, 256 MB of RAM (the same as iPad), the same Apple A4 processor as the iPad and iPhone, and the same Broadcom chip for Bluetooth, FM, and WiFi b/g/n capabilities. And some solder pads near the side of the logic board look like a perfect fit for an Apple dock connector.

Apple licenses tech from TV guide maker Rovi

Apple never rests and as proof, an SEC filing today revealed that it has struck a “multi-year agreement” with Rovi in what may be a strategy to support the new Apple TV. The terms are secret, but will let Apple license Rovi’s technology over the course of the deal. Neither company has commented yet.

It’s hard to say what Apple would use the tech for. The company makes interactive program guide material that taps into TV channel lineups. It also makes software for set-top boxes to access and share media stored both on the Internet and the local network. So Apple TV is a good guess.
