    I seriously hope that’s not their official line. Right now, AppleTV is a 720p/i-only device, while practically all HD camcorders out there are 1080p/i. This may change tomorrow, but still. Clearly, mainstream consumers are buying Blu-ray in far greater number than they’re buying AppleTV. In Windows, you can buy several cheap (sub- $100) software tools that will acquire your AVCHD video, let you edit it, as well as author and export into Blu-ray compatible file format, with proper directory structure, ready for burning onto optical media. On the Mac side, the only fairly integrated solution for that is Adobe CS4 suite (Premier/AfterEffects/Encore). On the consumer side, there’s nothing, except very clunky and unintuitive process involving iMovie and Toast.

    The realities of today imply that providing blu-ray authoring could make a lot of Mac users happy.
