    Okay so the girl wants Apple TV. And for $100 that's really cheap so why not.

    But the thing she likes is netflix. We have the PS3 and Wii but nothing for the bedroom.

    So after checking it out.. There is a "remote" app for the iPad. So main question: can I stream photos from my iPad to apple tv??

    I always upload my photos to the iPad and never get the time to upload to the PS3.. At least in time to share with others. Be nice to pull pics from the iPad to display in an instant.

    Tonight, I showed my wife how I could stream pictures from my iPad to my 42" using the Apple TV. Then I showed her how I could show TV shows and movies from my iPad. The picture quality was great and no problems. I had wondered if the picture quality would suffer. No.

    Would be nice if more and more apps added that ability. Would be nice to say, throw the PBS app on the Apple TV.

    Do I need 4.2 or will this work with what my iPad came with months ago?

    I want Apple TV. The wife asked what I wanted for Xmas and I said Apple TV. So now I have to wait a month just because I told her it would be a great gift.

    has anyone gotten the apple tv and then cancelled their cable? I am strongly considering doing just that and cutting the. cable chord so that I am free.

    I have looked into, not deeply, cutting the cable. However, I watch The Science Channel and The Discovery Channels 90% of my TV viewing time. I haven't seen anyway to get those two channels other than Cable.. Anyone else know how to get these two channels without cable? I would love to cut the cable.

    Keep in mind the older apple tv has a 160gb drive so I have every thing from the computer already synced so using the app on my iPhone or iPod touch or iPad allows to control what is already there. In saying that the older apple tv has not been upgraded to support the new features in ios4.2. The new apple tv and os 4.2 on any supported device provides every thing you need in each app ie music, Picts and movies without using remote as it streams what ever is on that device
