Apple TV released a software update a few days ago that coincided with the iOS 7 release. A few owners reported that their AppleTV's were bricked as a result of the update. Apple pulled the release and today has re-released the software. The Verge has an article on the new features. I was lucky enough to not have an issue and am enjoying iTunes radio through my entertainment center now. Wroth the upgrade for sure.
Did you ahve any issues during the upgrade?
I woke up this morning to a wonderful review from the guys over at jailbreakmatrix.com Jordan wrote some really nice things about the design and what I was trying to accomplish.
"Bloc is a sexy, sleek and minimalistic design in where you can mount your Apple TV into along with your remote control. Having it in one place makes so much sense, and also having a product like Bloc that makes it look luxurious sitting in there is pretty awesome."
Thanks Jordan !
Computerworld Germany did a write up of blocs.tv.
