I also just realized how this moves the AppleTV closer to being a very capable gaming console. I might have to see what pairing an Xbox controller to it is like playing games on it... bet yet I'l have my son do it.

I get the meshiness. What I don't get is why this is called 'Thread' and not 'Threading'.

'An Apple TV with Thread.' Does no one care about words anymore?

Just to be clear, I do have rooms in my house where devices have mics and cameras. I just don't want my house overrun with a bunch of hardly noticed and eminently hackable devices listening and watching almost everywhere. Between known government and business privacy threats, I don't think that's even close to paranoia.

BTW, unless I missed it, I have to give Apple props for resisting any silly-ass 420 jokes/references yesterday. Had it been a live, on-stage event, you know good and well Craig Federighi would’ve made one.

Hey, mannnn...

DISCLAIMER: I missed the opening 5-10 minutes (and bailed after the iMac unveiling) so if Tim or some other employee did, I missed it.

No. Everyone also says “write an e-mail”. Makes no sense, but here we are.

No it isn't Xbox X or PS5, but still it is a huge move forward.

Yeah, using the A12 Bionic means the gaming experience is consistent from the low-end of the iPad, the iPhone, Mac and AppleTV.

I guess if they'd truly wanted to rival the Xbox SX and PS5, they'd need to use the M1.
But it will clearly be a few years before that happens.

I was all excited to do the color calibration on my media room TV only to find it didn't need it. I mean, at least it was already good... but that was a shock given it is a cheap <$300 TLC on the wall in there with an Apple TV 4K.

I was kinda hoping it would be something different so I would feel justified in going through the calibration process. I'm going to try one of my Samsungs next and see how they handle it.
