With television being one of the major forms of entertainment, it is not in the least surprising that makers are taking initiatives to make this experience better and more enjoyable. Also, as people are becoming more and more advanced, they want simultaneous access to a vast variety of forms of entertainment from the same device. No longer a phone which allows only voice calls is acceptable. Similarly, people are no longer interested in a TV which allows just a normal viewing of shows.
The new generation wants a TV which can do much more than just support viewing of shows. They need high video quality, applications to view their photos in a wide-screen when they invite guests, listen to music from their favorite iOS devices and play multiplayer games. Apple TV is here to fulfill our huge list of expectations from a single device. The new Apple TV is much more than just a TV.
Here is a list of the things the Apple genie can do:
• No need for the huge ugly cable box in the drawing-room!
The Apple TV has integrated the cable box, DVR and video apps like Amazon and Youtube. This simply gives you more space to decorate your house.
• Just the kind of thing for the party animals
The amazingly loud speakers flaunted by the Apple TV are a thing to die for.
• Just one remote – your phone will do
You can now control your TV using your iPhone or iPad; no more searching for the TV remote all over the room.
• Simply voice your command
The Siri application lets you control your TV with your voice. Dim the pictures or fast-forward the DVR, all just by using raising your voice.
• Make your tv a photo frame while inviting guests or your music player
Swapping of content between devices is another awesome feature introduced by Apple. You can sync Apple TV with the desktop computer and watch a slideshow of the picture files or listen to music from the music files, all just off the computer.
• iTunes now not just on your Mac or PC
iTunes is a free application available for Mac or PC users. It co-ordinates and plays videos and music present on your computer. Now anything taken out on rent on iTunes is available on Apple TV too.
• Gamers – this is your new arena
No need of huge PCs with a huge CPU for high-level gaming. Challenge your mates to a hard-core multiplayer game on your Apple TV itself.
• Budget problems?
Not anymore. The Apple TV comes at an affordable cost of around $99.
