Apple TV Enthusiasts Launch Wetpaint Wiki

Apple/Mac and iTunes Users Go Wiki to Openly Collaborate on Bringing Their iTunes Content to the Big Screen

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 6, 2007 -- With Apple TV™ on the market for just a few weeks, enthusiasts are already clamoring for information on the company's latest product designed to play iTunes® content from a PC or Mac® on a widescreen TV. In response, Jon Bell, an Apple and Mac watcher since the early 1990s, has launched a new Apple TV Wiki (http://www.wikiappletv.com) to bring together the best of blogs, social networks and message boards to promote community-based reviews, trouble-shooting, and innovative thinking.

Powered by Wetpaint (www.wetpaint.com), the consumer-friendly Wiki for collaborating and publishing online, the new Apple TV Wiki is designed to become the industry's most collaborative and informative community for anyone interested in purchasing, reviewing, supporting or learning more about the Apple TV solution.

Built and run exclusively by Apple TV users and fans, the new Wiki allows people to simply click and type in order to add or edit text, photos, videos, or hyperlinks to the Apple TV Wiki site, without worrying about complicated mark-up languages. This allows anyone interested in Apple TV to openly collaborate on topics ranging from upgrading their hard drive to getting their Apple TV to work with more displays and video formats. In addition, the new Wiki includes a reviews section for consumers who are currently evaluating whether to buy an Apple TV, or compare the new device against other television and DVD products currently on the market.

Jon Bell, moderator for the Apple TV Wiki, says, "Rather than running a niche site only for Apple TV hacks or only for comparison shopping, we're hoping to be the most comprehensive Apple TV site on the Internet, covering all topics related to this new product."

To celebrate the launch of the new Apple TV Wiki, new registered users can enter a contest to win a gift certificate to the iTunes store. The contest runs through Monday, April 16.
