Apple is going to go head to head with Google over control over web content on people's television. A major revamp of AppleTV is headed our way to compete with Google's new set top box & interface. Either way, indies will soon have new worlds available to conquer. It's going to be a whole lot easier to get your work positioned to be seen in the comfort of someone's home. Fast Company reports on many of Apple's revamps benefits, from a low $99 price to cloud computing storage (so you can watch anything instantly without having to prerecord).

Well, that's all something to discuss, but for now I was just more interested in who can be indie film's savior.
