Trial and Error

Taking a Bite Out of Apple TV

April 8, 2008 10:43 AM

I watched “Cleveland’s Next Top Model” on My Apple TV

That’s right. I have an Apple TV.

And I love it.

Because now I never have to be separated from YouTube or iTunes by anything as annoying as not wanting to spend another freaking second on my computer!

Anyway, my husband just set the Apple TV up yesterday and there are still a few tweaks needed here and there. Like, for instance, I told him I didn’t want to unplug the DVD player every time I want to use the Apple TV because you decided to use the same cord. Buy another cord!

But I digress. The point is now I can watch YouTube from my couch. Is there anything better than that? Now I can watch podcasts and Webcasts and Web video shows in iTunes from my couch with a bowl of popcorn in hand.

So I did yesterday, watching Arcade Fire on YouTube, then a little “Internet Superstar” on iTunes and then back to YouTube for Atomic Wedgie’s new Web comedy series, “Cleveland’s Next Top Model.” Now I’m going to go watch the second episode on my Apple TV, but if you don’t have one you can watch the first episode right here.

"Cleveland’s Next Top Model" "Summer in Miami, Winter in Cleveland" was exactly like where Tyra Banks tortured those poor little things in the freezing pool... I hope these people get famous and rich satirizing her.


So is the YouTube video resolution as bad on Apple TV as it is using a regular computer?


Man, that Cleveland's NTM is damn funny!

"Cold nipples, Larry!"


I don't think the resolution is too bad...but stay tuned or Monday's New Media Minute...
