So I went out the other day and got one of those shiny new Apple TV devices and hooked it up. It is everything I imagined it would be. Using my iPhone, the Remote app and home sharing I can play my entire iTunes library through my stereo system. Using Airplay I can also just play my iPhone’s music library through it at as well without bringing pen and paper into this… or my computer. That’s pretty much all I bought it for… so I could listen to my iTunes on my main speakers. Check! Loud music is once again available in this house. So long laptop speakers.
With the mirroring though, you also get some cool game play which I haven’t delved too deep into. I don’t have too many games but so far Metalstorm is real cool. Your phone is the cockpit, the 55″ TV shows the planes battling away. I’m sure there are a lot of other great games that’ll have advanced features on them but I have to start looking. In the meantime the only thing I wish it had was HBO GO but Game Of Thrones is still on OnDemand so it’s not that big of a deal.
What I’m watching: 30 Rock
