Well it looks like I made the right choice with the Apple TV.
9to5mac.com Airplay for safari and 3rd party apps has reported that Airplay for safari and 3rd party apps will be available in 2011. The person that made the announcement was none other than Mr Steve Jobs responding to an email from a MacRumors reader.
Today I went and bought an Apple TV. I don’t think I have a need for it yet, but I want one. It was after watching this video that I saw the potential.
The video shows the use of Airplay on 3rd party apps. While the APIs are private at the moment, which means the app won’t pass the app store review, it shows how much Airplay can be used if Apple decide to make the APIs public. I mean come on, sitting on your couch streaming video from your PC/Mac to your TV via your iPhone/iPad. It’s the ultimate couch potato dream :).
Apple has just released(actually it was about 5am this morning :)), their latest iOS version 4.2.1. It’s supposed to bring together both iPhone and iPad, with both having the same features like, multitasking, folders, airprint and air play.
They also decided to make Find My iPhone for free. If you have an iPhone 4, iPad or a fourth gen iPod Touch you can get Find My iPhone you can get it for free. For the rest of the people with older devices you have to pay for MobileMe, which gives you Find My iPhone amongst the other features.
Time to get cracking and download the update.
Wow. First post from my iPad using the WordPress app. Awesome.
