let’s see if i receive a response from Steve on this one. although his vision is probably DVD-less, we most likely will be stuck with that technology for another decade.

Hi Steve, I’m an Apple fan for over 5 years: iPod, various macs, iPhone, iPad. I am especially enjoying the latest Apple TV / AirPlay technology. But I have an idea that completes your Air / wireless revolution:
To place a DVD-R drive on a time capsule. That way all members of that wifi network can have Airs, no need for external drive and only play / use / record DVDs when they need them, wirelessly via … time capsule. No more need to have an older mac, pc or plug-in external drive. Truly, wireless experience.
Of course to complete the picture, it would be cool for Apple TV, iPad to also be able to play DVDs from such time capsule device, wirelessly via AirPlay.
ps: one more request – please improve AirPlay / home sharing. Especially make AirPlay iTunes independent. Currently if a user forgets to turn iTunes app, content on that mac is not visible to Apple TV (also if an error message pops up on iTunes, Apple TV stops seeing content on that mac).
If you happen to like my idea, I’m a web project manager who’s looking for a job or … a lifetime supply of apple goodies would be greatly appreciated :)
