Last night, I finally got caught up on Lost like I’ve been trying to do for a week now. Again, the quality is great…but I did notice one other little nitpick…I don’t like the way the remote fast forwards. It’s not precise enough for me. I’m sure this is something that can be fixed with software, but I would really like a better fast forward and rewinding capability.
I’ll tell you another thing that I have noticed about using the AppleTV….I don’t watch as much TV.
Don’t get me wrong, I love television, but since I don’t have any channels to flip I’ve found myself working on other projects and *gasp* reading a book from time to time, instead of flipping around for something to have on the tube.
I think this is a good thing, and I’m glad to finally get to reading the other books in the “John Carter of Mars” series I’ve had on my bookshelf (my bookshelf being the floor next to my bed) for over a year.
One other quick note, on this apparently random thoughts of AppleTV edition of the column, has anyone else noticed how hot the AppleTV gets? Geez – this thing is on fire. It is literally hot to the touch. Mexican Food Restaurants don’t serve food on plates this hot (remember, I’m in Texas…we eat a lot of Tex-Mex here). I hope that we don’t start hearing about AppleTV over heating problems anytime soon…but I can’t say that I would be surprised if we do.
