XBMC "Camelot" update brings lots of new features

Just in case the gifts you got from your family last week didn't float your boat (no kidding, I got a Yakov Smirnoff DVD -- I love my parents, but they're not the best gift givers in the world), here's another fun present to unwrap. The folks at XBMC released a brand new version on Christmas Eve,...

Vuze allows remote playback support to Apple devices

Update: Original version of this post contained some accidental misinformation. Errors have been corrected. Azureus was my Bittorrent client of choice back in the day -- it used to be open source and easy to use and install, and served up any torrents you'd like. Eventually, however, the app was...

So you just got an Apple TV -- now what?

All day on December 25, TUAW presents "Now What?" We've got first steps and recommendations for all the Apple gifts you (hopefully!) found under the tree today. Happy holidays! The Apple TV launched almost two years ago and has yet to really "take off." That's OK, with more and more downloadable...

TUAW talks to boxee and brings you invites

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm super thankful that I have been able to spend the last 13 months blogging for TUAW and interacting with all of you. On a more superficial note, I am also thankful for my Macs and all the cool stuff Apple products enable me to do. The newest member of my Apple family is...

Boxee is updated for Apple TV 2.3

We've covered boxee, a fantastic media center application that can run on your Mac or Apple TV. With its attractive interface and support for Hulu, boxee is what convinced my boyfriend and me to order an Apple TV. Predictably, the day our second Apple TV arrived from Apple (the first unit broke...

Apps for Apple TV: sign me up

Saul Hansell, over at the New York Times Bits blog, takes Microsoft's recent announcement about Xbox LIVE Community Games as a jumping off point to some speculation about Apple TV (and who doesn't like speculation?). Hansell wonders what would happen if Apple were to open up an App Store for the...

AirRemote (and other remote possibilities) for the iPhone

Just the other day I was thinking about how it might be possible to do something like this app reader Jason kindly dropped us a tip about: AirRemote is an application, soon to be released on the App Store, that's supposed to turn your iPhone or iPod touch into a television remote control. The first...

Joystiq compares XBox Live to Apple TV

The Apple TV isn't the only device in town that offers up movie rentals (in both standard and HD), but it is the one in the headlines this week (I wonder why). Steve noted during his keynote that many companies have tried to get online video in the livingroom and they have all failed, including...

Apple TV on Yahoo! Tech's Worst of 2007 list

Apple products often find themselves on the yearly 'Best of' lists composed by the mainstream media and bloggers alike, but they don't often grace the 'Worst of' lists. Sadly, Yahoo! Tech has deemed the Apple TV as one of the 'Top 10 Worst Tech Products' of the year. Apple TV made the list for a few...

24 Hours of Leopard: Front Row

Feature: Front Row is updated to work just like Apple TV, but on your computer. How it works: To tell the truth, I kind of liked the spinning icons of Front Row (and so did this kitten), but the Apple TV interface is nice, too. You can play all of your content (and even content streaming from...

Road Trip GPS plugin for Apple TV

A little while back, Apple TV Hacks posted on a great idea: one of their readers, Brandon Holland, is using an Apple TV as a carputer. He chiefly uses it as an in-car entertainment center, but it also does double duty as a GPS system using the Road Trip plugin which he has now released over at...

Rumor: Mac mini turns Nano in late October

I've had this plan ever since the mini almost died earlier this year, and I'm sticking to it: as soon as I can buy a Mac mini with Leopard on it, I'll do so. And no one's going to stop me-- except maybe Jobs himself. Mac OS Rumors reports that they've heard that as of October's end, the mini is...

JamanTV for Apple TV

A little while back we mentioned the Navizon "virtual GPS" application for the iPhone, which was one of the first commercial third-party applications for the iPhone which depended on the iPhone hacks. Of course, Navizon is now presumably broken along with the rest of the iPhone hacks. It seems that...

Apple Store redesigns

As the good Doc Mac points out very adeptly with the picture above, the reason for the Apple Store's outage Wednesday morning must have been a redesign-- it's come back with a splash of blue. I like the new look. I think the slight gradient in the background makes it, but the rounded corners,...
