Remember the hype about how Steve Jobs had "cracked television" by coming up with a unified GUI between Live TV and app channels? Well:

It has everything the consumer would want. It has the Live TV section, app channels and a "My Channels" which I suspect is favorite-d channels from both as well as search. There is nothing missing in this GUI. All that matters is the licensing deals to differentiate Apple & Microsoft on this. So the idea that Steve Jobs was this singular genius who invented everything years before anyone else had a clue is demonstrably FALSE.

Thing is I'm sure the Apple TV GUI will be comparable, but their huge advantage is price. You can get their guide for $99 and the Microsoft costs $499. I think Microsoft should come out with an XBox Lite set-top media box that does the same thing the Apple TV does - media streaming only at $99.
