Rumor: Apple working on a Bluetooth Multitouch Keyboard and Apple TV Update

Macenstein has posted an email they received from a reader that shows the new keyboard and talks about the upcoming Apple TV update. The new Bluetooth keyboard has the same all aluminum design and chiclet keys but adds a touch-sensitive area on the right. This touch-sensitive area will be backlit and programmable. It can illuminate as a numerical pad, a click wheel or a standard trackpad. The reader also mentioned in the email about the update for Apple TV that will add Bluetooth capabilities, better processor and bigger hard drive. The software for Apple TV will include full .mac compatibility, allowing you to check email, surf, organize photos and even video chat via USB webcam. As always take the rumors with a grain of salt and very soon we will find out if Apple does any of the above-mentioned stuff. Though I have to say that the keyboard is very interesting and I wish I could buy one.
