There’s quite a few of you who would love to load up your Apple TV with iOS apps and games (effectively turning the Apple TV into a mini-console), but we’ve settled for jailbreaks in the meantime in order to get the most out of the pocketable media-center. The latest in jailbreaking news comes from appletvblack, whom demonstrate that a simple game of blackjack can be played on the Apple TV through Couch Surfer (a web browser for the big screen). The game is simple, but demonstrates that the Apple TV can access and play media that Apple doesn’t otherwise allow. The Apple TV, currently a “hobby” to be used in conjunction with your existing home television equipment, has the potential to be as functional as an iPhone if Apple opens the platform up to apps. In the meantime, we’ve posted a video after the break that shows off the game of blackjack and just how functional HTML5 based apps for the Apple TV can be.
