Dan Frakes is back to talk about the Apple TV and the impact it is having on individual video acquisition and consumption, and on the video industry in general. Is it suitable just for cord cutters, movie fans or those who want alternative video content? Dan discusses why it addresses all those audiences and more. Dan also discusses his forays into home automation and how it is becoming more approachable to a wider, less geek-oriented audience.
