Why get the Apple TV?
The Apple TV internet TV connection device will change the way we watch TV.
Apple TV streams Video to your TV from your computer and uses digital HDMI cable to connect to your TV. I see a Apple revolution going on with the constant stream of cool high technology products that revolutionizes the way we do things.
Take me for example. I worked for Hewlett Packard Company for over 20 years. I managed Intel Processors, Chipsets, Boards, components, packaging and DRAMS (memory chips for computers) and R&D to bring out the latest and greatest new HP Product. I would never buy an Apple product when I worked there. I use HP laptops, HP Officejet printer, HP high definition monitor and use the HP 12C calculator.
So what happened?
iPhones came out with the latest and greatest possible device capabilities of any other mobile phone. I decided to get one right when they came out for $400 for my business. I loved it. I use it for Twitter, Facebook, Google Maps, TV guide, remote control, camera and flashlight. It is totally awesome. I used it for many years and just got the iPhone 4 and it is so much better.
Buy the Apple Macbook laptop computer
Then I had virus protection that was slowing down my computer and I wanted to start making videos. The Mac has iMovie with every computer and it is a great video editor. I bought my first Macbook in 2008.
Buy the iPad tablet computer device
Then the iPad came out and it looked like a great way to read books and watch movies and get email and run social networks. I bought a iPad for my birthday because I wanted something I did not need. I love it now and use it all the time.
Buy a Macbook Pro 13″ laptop computer
I got fed up with my windows computer crashing all the time so I decided to switch my primary computer to a Mac in December 25, 2009. I love it. The build quality is great. It does not crash as much and after getting used to it can pretty much do everything I did on my Windows machine. I prefer Windows file management system. It is a lot easier for me to find what I am looking for. The Macbook Pro is a delight to use and is sturdy and is a wonderful laptop that I like better than Windows laptops.
Buy a Airport extreme wireless router
My old Linksys WRT-54G router was dropping the internet connection on wired and wireless connections and it was very frustrating. I searched for a new router and decided on the Apple Airport Extreme dual band N router. There was a close second with the D-Link router, yet I went with Apple because I like their products. They feel substantial and well built and the technology does not seem to go obsolete very fast. I brought it home plugged it in and that was about it. No muss no fuss, it just started to work without any fancy set up or reading the instructions or anything like that. Apple tends to be a very customer service friendly company while carefully watching the bottom line.
Apple is the best run company in the world.
The best just got better.
Apple is leading the charge of implementing new useful technology for the masses.
Apple is setting the standard and raising the bar for other slower less innovative companies to integrate into this new standard set by Apple. The are becoming a huge force in advertising with the iPad. So much so that the publishers are not very happy with the way Apple is managing the information the advertisers get since it is less that they are used to. The publishers are used to getting all the demographic information for the people that took action because of an advertisement they ran in a magazine. Apple is renting the TV shows for a day or two for 99 cents. At Amazon, you can buy the TV show forever for the same 99 cents.
For me, I am getting tired of paying high prices to the Cable company every month. I get HD digital signals from a TV antenna on my roof so I get the regular 1, 4, 5, 7, 11 as well as local channels. I can watch most TV shows online either with the iPad and the ABC application player and tv.com application. Hulu.com has most major TV shows available to watch for free the next day. Training for just about anything is available on YouTube for free. It will be very useful and cool to be able to stream video from my computer wirelessly instead of unhooking the DVD player HDMI cable and connecting it to my laptop. I think for $99 that the Apple TV is a perfect thing to buy to keep up with technology.
My Apple TV review based on the technology results in a Buy rating.
