Apple TV

I purchased an Apple TV. After three weeks of use I can't find a single thing to complain about. Apple does user interfaces like no other company. They are the UI king. Apple TV is no exception. Videos, music, and photos are all handled flawlessly. The picture slide show does wonders for my photos. The Ken Burns affect gives the pictures life. YouTube videos buffer and play smoothly, at least when my BellSouth, oops, I mean the new AT&T DSL circuit is working properly. Movies look great. I just wish there we more movies that I'm interested in viewing.

Now if Apple could do something about iTunes the CPU hog. When it is syncing my iPod or my Apple TV my PC comes to a grinding halt. I have to wait for it finish, which takes a few minutes, before I can use my PC again. Why can't Apple just lower the priority of the sync thread?
