    I'm getting my parents, my siblings, and a couple of close friends Apple TV for Xmas. I keep so much content on my MacBook and iPad that the idea I can just go over there and easily stream or AirPlay some video right to their TV is... intoxicating.

    Head on over to my mom's and flip on Helvetica. Drive over to my sisters and stream Iron Man 2. Babysit my little god-children and keep them entertained with Teen Titans Go. The possibilities are endless.

    Heck AirPlay for web video will be distraction and family buffer enough alone to more than justify the purchase price.

    I shall never be bored, and they shall never be culturally out of the loop, again.

    Can't wait.

    I'll take one, too! lol

    I don't know if my parents would actually use it though? I'd like to think they would but I just don't know. But can you go wrong for $100? I think Apple nailed it on the head with that price point.

    My parents don't have to use it. I'll use it when I go there!

    I like the enthusiasm! How will apple TV compare to competitors such as Roku? What exactly will be the differences, other than that apple will have better design and usability?

    I'm in Canada. Many folks might not realize this, but few companies offer products like these internationally, and even when they do, beyond Apple few have the rights to offer any content for them.
