I like being able to switch between accounts. Why? My girlfriend has purchased way more stuff from iTunes. Cool

I think Airplay performance has improved slightly too. At least when streaming my desktop over from a MacBook Air.

I just wish they would bring HBOGO and Spotify onto the Apple TV. I know people talk about bringing apps over all the time, but that's what I really want. Come on Apple!
