Apple TV Now There’s Always Something Good on TV.
The device of Apple also allows you to link your TV screen with your tablet.
If you’re one of the owners of a brand new iPad Retina Display (the more modern until now) probably you’ve already felt desire to display your photos to more people without the need to provide your tablet. OR perhaps sharing some video. The special connector that uses becomes a great disadvantage in those moments.
For these cases you can consider this option: Apple TV. What is that? A small box that connects to your television. In addition to give you some smart properties – thanks to your Internet connection-, lets you link this screen with your tablet.
The Apple TV is a compact device. Has a design very simple but very elegant, in black. It’s enough just to connect to electricity and tv (via an HDMI cable that is not included) to begin operating.
Your remote control is very simple, the graphical interface is very attractive and the settings are very simple. Brings built-in Wi Fi connection, but also has space for connection via Ethernet cable.
The housing provides access to Apple stores of content and applications such as YouTube, be seen at VIMEO website, Flickr, Netflix. Eye, there are not many and the new downloads depend on Apple updates.
Devices that have the technology airplay (iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone) are connected with the Apple TV, and let you use the display on your HD TV to play certain content without the need for cables.
It is an interesting team, which provides connectivity to the Internet, and that allows the communication between devices without cables.
