It's been a long time coming, but the updated Apple TV is a thing you can finally plunk down your money for starting today.
The new 32 GB ($269) and 64 GB ($349) models represent the biggest update to Apple's set-top-box since it launched ages ago. The coolest new feature? The Siri remote which features a touchpad for navigation and gaming, as well as voice search powers. Yes, that means the new box has years overdue gaming powers, which may or may not be too late. The new Apple TV will also finally (finally!!!) have an app store.
We'll have to wait and see if the new features, which are catch-ups more than fresh ideas, can help Apple compete with Amazon's solid Fire TV offerings.
If you get to your pre-order straight away, it could see shipment as early as October 30.
