Podcast #161: Apps on Apple TV and Microsoft Slated to Open Store Across From Apple Store

Looks like the iOS implementation on the Apple TV can be jailbroken to install apps. Too bad you can’t actually launch the apps with a Launcher. Fingers crossed for a Launched on the Apple TV soon.

Microsoft decides to throw the retail gauntlet down and plans on opening a store across from the Apple Store in the Mall of America. Will there be a dance off? A stare down? Can we get our listeners to walk into the Microsoft Store and ask for an iPhone? Only time will tell.

And finally, the iPad has a faster adoption rate than DVD. That’s insane!
