AppleTV Gets A Genius


Last night Apple rolled out a security update for it’s AppleTV. According to Apple, this update fixes a bug in the unit that could allow a “maliciously crafter movie file to lead to an unexpected termination of arbitrary code execution”. Doesn’t sound good at all for all the Apple TV owners, all 6 of us.

With yesterdays release Apple also sneaked in a Genius playlist function. When you hold down the play/pause button while a song is playing then a popup menu will appear and allow you to “Start Genius”.

You can pick up the update via the Update Software option in your AppleTV. Anyone found any new and exciting features in the latest update?
