I'm looking at this as a possible Christmas present and wanted to see what the major differences were between the 3rd generation apple tv and the 4th generation apple tv.

    The major difference is the incorporation of Siri for voice control rather than having to use a keypad to laboriously key in when searching for something. It also has had a major makeover regarding interoperability and runs on its own OS so that developers can develop specific apps for Apple TV. This cannot be achieved on the previous versions of Apple TV. I purchased a 64GB version today and it looks superb. The 'aerial' screensavers are really beautiful. From here on out Apple TV can only get better.
