30 Days of AppleTV – Day 22

As we turn into the home stretch here, I find myself torn. On one hand, I have to say that I am happy with the AppleTV.  Not just as a device that plays my iTunes videos on my TV, but as a replacement for my cable bill.  Even if, when I total up the money Read more…

Yesterday I didn’t spend much time with my AppleTV. I had too many other things to do. It also doesn’t help that there really isn’t much that I watch on Monday or Tuesday nights. I have been encoding everything I can find with Visual Hub, however, to maximize the content on my AppleTV. I do Read more…
