About a week ago, I get this strange, yet exciting, email with the subject line “Important message about your ApptleTV.” Expecting some email about how the AppleTV may blow up because it’s so finicky and Apple never releases any updates or anything to help the wackiness of the AppleTV, I was surprisingly wrong.
The important message was an email providing 4 steps to download & install an update. Thank the computer gods, this is what we’ve been waiting for people.
So it took Mark a day to get around to it, but he downloaded & installed it like the important message told us to do. Most notably, the update included an update to the interface. That was a HUGE step in the right direction. It’s much more intuitive and sleeker.
In terms of other aspects of the update–the email said the update “prevents content from temporarily disappearing until it is resynced.” We don’t sync our content with iTunes because we have too much music for that to make any sense (and take less than 5 days). But, we didn’t lose any content and it hasn’t been finicky at all since we installed the update.
Apple, please don’t wait another 3 years to have another AppleTV update. Those of us who have the AppleTV really need you to pay attention to this project and not just leave us hanging. I love Apple and I love non-finicky Apple products. Thanks much.
