Since the invention of computers and streaming websites, a lot of people now gravitate towards using their PCs when watching videos, movies, and shows. Listening to music is also now generally done via streaming on a computer. However, nothing still beats watching your shows on a big screen while sitting comfortably on your sofa. If […]
There is no question that 2014 was a good year for Apple. The iPhone 6 was a major hit, Mac sales continue to defy industry trends and sell at a brisk pace, and the iPad was a significant revenue earner despite slowing sales. The successful launch of iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite brought new […]
Here’s a new development from Apple that could be a sign that the company is cooking up something new. Apple has recently acquired a startup company, Matcha.tv. The company developed a second-screen mobile app and web-based service. It basically offers a number of features to complement TV viewing. This includes comprehensive TV listings, recommendations based […]
Apple’s done a nice job of adding more and more streaming media services to Apple TV since its inception in 2007. But we want more. Here are 7 services we want on our Apple TVs, stat.
At the third-generation iPad event this morning, Apple also took the wraps off of a refresh to the Apple TV hardware. The ATV formula isn’t shaken up in any major way with the new hardware, but it does have one big feature that viewers have been clamoring for.

The new AppleTV, a much smaller version of the hobby-box it replaced will hit 1 million sales by the end of this week. Apple, excited about the milestone has issued a press release. AppleÂ® […]
It’s a day of updates! iOS 4.2 for the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone rolled out today including updates to iWork adding multitasking support and AirPrint. Apple didn’t forget to neglect its hobby device, the AppleTV though. The media streamer was updated to iOS 4.1 enabling AirPlay and Voice Over. AirPlay is one of the […]
I spend most of my time working from home, and that means that I’m in front of my desk hammering away on my 15-inch MacBook Pro. I’ve often got 5-10 programs running simultaneously, which not only heats up my CPU, but causes the fans to run pretty heavy as well. It’s not a big deal […]
So how is the new AppleTV selling? Apparently, quite well. MacRumors has the specifics: During today’s earnings conference call, Apple CEO Steve JobsÂ noted that the company has sold over 250,000 units of the revamped Apple TV that was unveiled at the company’s September 1st media event and began shipping at the very end of September.

[Image via Engadget] I have no interested in the Google TV. I’m sure that at first you’ll assume that it’s because I’m an Apple fanboy, but for me, it’s more about making my life easier than whose label is on the box. Frankly, if Microsoft comes out with a product and it makes my life […]
Foul language ahead. Let me take a moment to peel back the curtain a little bit and fill you all in on how I do my job. I spend a good portion of my day hunting down Apple info, and when I get it, I report it to you. Sometimes I wait a day to […]

When Apple decided to make the push to 99-cent rentals on the AppleTV and other iOS devices, I thought that was a pretty good plan. After all, I don’t ever purchase a DVD or download of a TV show unless I really love it, and even then, it’s rare. So for 99 cents, I could […]
I was over at my folk’s house the other day, and the subject of the new AppleTV came up. He says to me, “You know, I was at Best Buy the other day, and they have these Samsung TVs with apps built in. Why would I buy an AppleTV?” Admittedly, that’s kind of a tough […]
When the new AppleTV was announced, I was pretty excited – obviously – but then I started to wonder about what this meant for my original AppleTV that was housed in the living room. The UI looks the same on the new version with just a few changes, so wouldn’t it make sense that there […]
