Today I want to talk about the newest version of the Apple TV.
I have an old 40GB version and it has been very enjoyable over the years. The biggest news with the new one is that it has no storage and is streaming only. No worries about the hard drive crashing. The other plus is the Netflix capability. If you are a Netflix subscriber, you will now be able to stream from the Apple TV to your TV, with just a simple HDMI connection. The new product still gives you the ability to stream music and movies from your iTunes library, as well as photos, if you use iPhoto. You can also control Apple TV with an iPhone or iPod Touch and the Remote app which turns your Touch into a powerful, and reasonably priced, way to do multi-room audio. Apple will also be coming out with an update that will allow you to stream whatever is on your phone or iPod touch to the Apple TV.
We are now taking pre-orders for this product. I, for one, am on that list.
