I love to watch my HD podcasts on my computer, but because they are in HD, why not put them on the big screen? The Apple TV does just that.... and more. The primary purpose for me is for streaming content from my computers to the family room, but I can use it to rent tv shows and movies if I wish. Here are some photos from unboxing the new Apple TV

Alright. Now I know I've stopped updating this blog. But I'm back. I enjoy spending my time on Apple sites. I'm on MacRumors Forums. I go by the username ouimetnick, and my profile is here.
I also am on Apple's own Forums called Apple Discussions. And again, my username is ouimetnick, and my profile is here. I'm also on iFixit. Same username, ouimetnick. And my ifixit Profile is here. Of course, I still enjoy making videos. So I'm still on YouTube. My username as always is cell1540rol, and my YouTube channel is located here. I'm on twitter now too. I'm on facebook too, but thats private, so you can follow me on Twitter. www.twitter.com/ouimetnick I will have to confirm you if you do follow me though.
For those who want to know, My current tech hardware is really nice. I have an Apple iPhone 3GS 16GB White with iOS 4.0.1! Really nice phone BTW. I do not own any iPods or other cell phones anymore. Just an iPhone 3GS. No iPod touch. For computers, I own a Dell Latitude D620. While it may be six years old, its great. I bought it from Dell's store on eBay for ONLY $300. Then I spent $150 to go from 1GB RAM to 3GB RAM and from a small 40Gb HD to a nice 7200 RPM WD Scorpio black 250GB HD. This computer makes a great hackintosh.
As of now, my Dell is running Apple's Mac OSX Snow Leopard. I have it at 10.6.2 due to a graphics issue in 10.6.3 and so on. The bug is little though. It won't let me watch HD movies or play videos in full screen mode, and the screen saves won't work, so I went back to 10.6.2.
Late next month (Late August) I will be getting a base model 13" MacBook Pro. Its the one with a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB DDR3 RAM, Nvidia 320M, and 250GB Hard drive. While the CPU may be a little outdated, it does everything just fine. My mom has the same MBP that I'm getting, so I know it runs like a champ. When I get my Mac, I do hope to do LOTS of Mac Videos. Also, one of my favorite Mac web site besides MacRumors is MacMost! Just operated by one guy. He makes very useful videos, and I highly suggest checking out his site. Gary (MacMost owner) makes very helpful videos, and has taught my mother and me some cool things with her MBP. To subscribe to his podcast in iTunes, click here.
I plan to update my blog more. But I do keep my YouTube channel up to date with the latest and greatest videos. I'm also on MacRumors A LOT!
