Steve Jobs' latest iteration of the set-top box gets mixed-positive reviews on Wall Street
Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster:
We see the new Apple TV as a meaningful change in Apple's efforts in the digital living room. The addition of new content, such as Netflix, in combination with the $99 price (down from $229), will drive higher unit volumes compared to the the previous version of Apple TV.

Given that these guys runs an online craps table and are better known for giving odds on NFL games than high-tech product releases, take this with a grain of salt.
But according to Bookmaker.com, Apple (AAPL) is much more likely to release a new version of the iPhone 4 on Wednesday than it is to announce a new iPod MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 31, 2010 4:29 PM ET

A study of 17 invitations issued over the past 9 years tells you only so much
Silicon Alley Insider's Dan Frommer raised a good question Wednesday. "Is Apple really going to announce a TV gadget," he asked, "at an event with a guitar on the invitation?"
The invitation he refers to is the one beckoning the press to an Apple (AAPL) special event in San Francisco next Wednesday, Sept. 1. The "TV MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 26, 2010 6:46 AM ET

Will Apple TV's successor, rumored for Sept. release, really destroy cable and satellite?
Kevin Rose, co-founder of Digg, made two bold predictions Saturday about the rumored update to what Steve Jobs calls his "hobby" -- an Apple-branded gateway to the vast wasteland of American television. The product Engadget has been calling iTV, according to Rose, 1) is coming in September and 2) will "change everything."
