Where’s the remote? This is a cry often heard in my household. It’s usually followed by, “which one,” a ritual that occurs on a regular basis, most often on a Friday or Saturday night. After fiddling and fumbling, looking under the couch between the cushions or maybe under the newspaper, the missing remote is usually found along with another you weren’t looking for, yet. However sometimes, like in the case of the pocket-size Apple remote, it may be destined to never be found.
For many, September means back-to-school, but for music lovers worldwide you’ll be excited to know that next month is also iTunes Festival month. It’s back for a 7th year, kicking off day one on September 1st, with Lady Gaga and wrapping up 30 days later with Katy Perry.
So there has been rumours about the iTV for quite some time. The device is supposed to be a game changer when it comes to watching television or some such thing. But I haven’t been too excited about it.
Today’s Apple event went off without a hitch and as expected Apple unveiled a new 3rd generation iPad; they’ve also updated Apple TV as well as a number of their flagship applications like iPhoto, GarageBand and iWork suite.
Released in 2007, the original AppleTV was Apple’s attempt to crack into the home theatre business, creating a network connected set-top box designed to get content from your computer and Internet to your big screen TV.
