Apple Showtime's After Party: Photos of the iTV Livingroom Streaming Box
The iTV set was by far the shining star of the show, hounded by fat, balding, geek paparazzi. The little set top box iTV looks like a half height Mac Mini with the sole purpose of streaming media to a livingroom TV. This is what is known to PC-doods as a Media Center Extender.

Again, it streams those new 640 by 480 pixel movies, music, photos, podcasts, TV shows. There's a power supply inside, USB, 802.11 wireless, Ethernet, HDMI, component, stereo audio, and optical audio out to your TV.

The good news is that even though there's a front row like interface, it looks like it's running fast enough that it won't suck like Apple's sluggish 10-foot interface, Front Row.

Apple's set top streamer won't be in our grubby little gadget mitts until 2007, but we're already asking: Why $299 for something without a drive? I don't know. Call it love.

And we touched it! Jump for some fetish shots, along with some screens. BTW, its a box, so don't expect centerfold-type imagery, mmkay?

(PS, we're not done yet! More posts to come in the next few hours.)
