Imagine being able to actually view ur stuff on the tv!? playing games, using ur applications! etc etc ...
WHOA that would be humongous!
NICE... i would LOVE to see this happen!!
What say guys!?
Well this is why a few people on this forum are disappointed with the new Apple TV's functionality. Apps on the TV would be great but i have a feeling it won't happen anytime soon. I think you can throw a web browser in there for good measure as well.
But i was thinking last night what sort of games, currently in the app store, would benefit from streaming the ipod/ipad/iphone to the Apple TV.
I'm not a big gamer by any stretch of the imagination. Angry Birds is about my level. Now imagine that on the big screen? It would be hard to concentrate because you'd have to navigate the catapult on the device, which means viewing it on the device, and then watching the result on the big screen.
Doesn't seem that intuitive to me. PS3's games are designed for the big screen with simple remotes with no visual function. With practice become a natural part of the fingers, whilst the eyes and ears focus on the big screen.
So we'd have to have a different type of game wouldn't we for this type of streaming that people seem to want? So it's certainly not as clear cut as one might think.
