We still can’t understand why Apple TV did not get any apps from the getgo, every other Apple  device seems be getting apps these days- now  including the Mac. Apple TV just got it’s first jailbreak app today. A weather app to be exact, as in the above screenshot, engadget notes the simple weather app, designed by a tiny software firm called nitoTV.

Apple TV video review

PC  Mag have an interesting video review on the new Apple TV, as reported by Mac Rumours. It demonstrates some of the abilities of Steve Job’s “hobby”, except the ability to stream from your PC, which I personally find the most interesting.

Which makes it perfect for sitting neatly on a widescreen TV stand or squeezing into a crowded media cabinet. Not only does the new Apple TV have an amazingly small footprint, it’s also incredibly energy efficient. It stays cool without a fan, so it’s never noisy.
