Apple TV in 10 minutes - Everything you need to know

Apple TV in 10 minutes - Everything you need to know

Everything you need to know about Apple TV (2010) in 10 minutes -- video quick start guide.

There should be a video here but Viacom has flagged it with YouTube due to it showing copyright content. I used a few seconds each of iTunes rental, Netflix, and streaming content to show the quality of the video -- color, quality, artifacts, staricasing, etc.-- which I absolutely consider fair use as a reviewer. I've filed an objection with YouTube on those fair-use grounds and hope YouTube quickly makes it available for embedding here, on TiPb, where it should be, and stops blocking international viewers. The link to the video on youtube is:

Hopefully at least some of you can watch it on there for now.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Apple TV (2010) gallery

Apple TV (2010) gallery

Apple TV (2010) is small. When you consider how much space the internal power brick takes up, it's positively tiny. Here's a look at it compared to the original Apple TV, the iPad, iPhone 4, iPod touch 4, and iPod nano (2010). Did we say it's tiny yet?

We've also included a bunch of shots of the interface so you can how similar, and yet different it is from the original Apple TV, and from the other iOS devices.

Check them out after the break.

Would Verizon still want iPhone if they could fork over Android and make their own Droid OS?

Would Verizon still want iPhone if they could fork over Android and make their own Droid OS?

We keep hearing rumors about iPhone on Verizon but at the same time Verizon is doing gangbusters with their Android-powered Droid line, and running roughshod over Google to do it in a way they'd never be able to with Apple. So what if they took the next illogical step and just forked Android and made their own Verizon (or Droid) OS?

MobileMe Gallery app updated for iOS 4, iPad, Retina Display

MobileMe Gallery app updated for iOS 4, iPad, Retina Display

Apple has finally updated MobileMe Gallery to version 1.2 with support iOS 4 fast app switching, iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 Retina Display, and made it a universal app for the iPad to boot!

And, like Remote app, all it took was Chad complaining for weeks and months on the podcast to do it! (Be afraid, Keynote Remote...!)

Also supported is the iOS-only ability to see friends' galleries even if you yourself don't have a MobileMe account. Nice.

Screen shots after the break. If you've tried out the new, improved, MobileMe Gallery app for iPhone or iPad, let us know if you liked it.

[iTunes link - thanks everyone who sent this in]

Apple TV (2010) give away!

Apple TV (2010) give away!

Yup, we're giving away an Apple TV (2010) in all its iOS-powered, potential Jailbreak-able glory. (Technically we're giving away a $100 Apple Store gift-certificate, but you get the idea). You want it? Of course you do, you're here on TiPb reading about it, aren't you?!

Well, just head on over to our brand new Apple TV Forum and leave a reply telling us why you want it. Is it all-about AirPlay? Netflix calling your name? Is it for the children? Need them $0.99 rentals? Or do you just have to have everything iOS? Any reason will do, and you only need to enter once (so don't be spammy about it, okay?).

Apple and Facebook continue to pong over Ping

Apple and Facebook continue to pong over Ping

Facebook CTO Bret Taylor is "very confident" Facebook and Apple will be able to come to terms on integrating Apple's social music network with Facebook's social people network.

Ping launched with Facebook Connect so you could more easily find your friends, but the service was blocked by Facebook and then pulled by Apple, with rumors following the two had been going back and forth over a deal for up to 18 months and Steve Jobs complaining Facebook wanted "onerous" terms.

While Apple improved Ping with iTunes 10.0.1's inclusion of a sidebar and the ability to Ping music you already owned from within iTunes, the service is still off to a rocky start. It remains inaccessible from a web browser when you're away from your desktop iTunes and don't have an iPhone with you (blasphemy, but it could happen), and otherwise still feels like a work in progress.

Apple TV (2010) Jailbreak via SHAtter shown off

Apple TV (2010) Jailbreak via SHAtter shown off

Looks like Apple TV (2010) can indeed be Jailbroken via the SHAtter exploit just like any other iOS 4.x device to date. Keep in mind the image above is just a tease and the Jailbreak hasn't been packaged for the masses yet, nor have we heard of any Apple TV-centric Jailbreak apps or extensions yet, but we can dream, right?

iPod, iPhone, and iPad: why Apple is so much more successful than Google and Microsoft

iPod, iPhone, and iPad: why Apple is so much more successful than Google and Microsoft

Yeah, crediting the iPod, iPhone, and iPad for why Apple is so much more successful than Google or Microsoft is a loaded headline, or would be if Mark Sigal from O'Reilly didn't point it out in so succinct a fashion:
