Apple TV: New and (Partly) Improved

BusinessWeek review of the updated Apple TV

The recommendations system could stand some work, too: The store made the peculiar suggestion that people who liked Doctor Zhivago might also enjoy Jackass: The Movie.

Apple TV remains a work in progress and will get better over time. But for now, most people will likely find it to be too limited.
