Seth Weintraub recounts a little history, plays a Steve Jobs video clip, and points out the real value of Apple’s new AirPlay technology in 9to5Mac:
AppleTV is a Airplay-compatible device, meaning it can stream video/sound from other Apple devices. We found out last night that it isn’t just iTunes content that it will be able to broadcast. Any H.264 content from the web can be broadcast over Airplay to your HDTV.
Is it a stretch to think of FaceTime streaming from iPhone or iPad through Apple TV to your big flat screen television?
