A couple of interesting Apple TV developments today. First off, a hacker has figured out how to get Apple TV, which is really an iOS app called Lowtide, to run — though a bit hobbled — on a 4th generation iPod touch (see video below). There’s also clues that Apple may port Lowtide for use on the iPad to create an instant Apple TV experience that ties into Apple’s streaming servers and perhaps can even be used as an AirPlay destination device for other iOS devices, according to TUAW. My 2-cents: Why not? If Apple TV comes to the iPad it would be no different than using Front Row or Windows Media Center on a PC — but in this case its through a tablet with an integrated display (something the Windows 7 powered HP Slate would have had several months back).
