You would think, since Apple added a 160GB model during after releasing the original 40GB model. But Steve Jobs repeatedly referred to the upcoming Apple TV as the "2.0," and in a way it makes sense. Major version number changes are for significant *upgrades,* whereas a simple 160GB storage bump with no major new features or hardware redesign is more akin to a mid-version *update,* like a 1.3.
Now, Apple has changed its Apple TV *software* a few times, and I believe it's up to version 3.x, which I think will technically bring the new interface on the upcoming Apple TV to 4.0. But we'll have to wait and see how Apple refers to it to be sure.

I imported a bunch of CDs last night and did not have any problems.

There's no "could" about it. It is a violation of the HIG, not just for 3rd-party developers but for Apple themselves.
The important question is: "Is that a problem?" The most important word in the phrase "Human Interface Guidelines" is 'guidelines.' It is not "Human Interface Rules Which Must Be Obeyed Without Question." Apple has always explicitly acknowledged the reality that there can be valid reasons for deviating from the HIG and I consider it significant and valuable that they themselves have *always* done so, and for the most part their deviations do improve the user experience. It always comes down to whether or not it makes sense "here."

Ping is completely invisible in iTunes. You can browse the store, listen to music, and do anything else and not even realize Ping exists...unless you look in the source column to see "Ping" listed. Thankfully the feature is not "in your face" the entire time. The interface updates making better use of the screen is bizarre and unattractive? Not sure how you determined that. You do realize that social networking is fully implemented on Macworld and these forums, don't you?
