Why you should have Apple TV

I've been using Apple TV for about a year and I have to say that I consider it to be the best purchase for the price from Apple at $99 ($79 at Fry's Electronics on sale). It allows me to view my photos and videos on my 50" flat screens from my iPad or iPhone.

For the Photographer:
You'll be able to show your clients their photo-shoots or videos immediately on the large screens of your HD TV's using one of the many photo/video apps and mirror mode on the iPhone 4 and iPad 2 or greater.

For Movies or videos:
YouTube and Vimeo videos look great on the big screen. The latest Apple TV has 1080p resolution so I'm able to watch HD movies in True HD. You'll also be able to watch Netflix (Netflix also comes pre-installed on the Apple TV) as well.

For Music:
You can also listen to your music library wirelessly through any connected audio system. Instead of listening to my music through a set of ear buds, I listen to my favorite songs through a professional 700 watt audio system connected to 9 stereo speakers.

For the web:
View websites and watch streaming videos from the web on your TV.

For Podcast:
Imagine being able to watch your favorite podcast such as Kelby Training and being able to see what the instructor is selecting in the drop down menus in "Adobe Photoshop" or "Lightroom" on the big screen instead of squinting on a 4" or 10" screen.

These are a few reasons I can think of to have Apple TV. Leave me a post if you can think of any additional reasons to have an Apple TV.
