OS X Mountain Lion AirPlay Mirroring via AppleTV

OS X Mountain Lion AirPlay

One of my favorite feature that Mountain Lion is offering is AirPlay Mirroring. AirPlay mirroring has been available for iPad or iPad, meaning you can stream or mirror what you see in your iPad/iPhone to your AppleTV which will be shown on your big screen TV.

Mountain Lion is going to bring that feature to Mac, so you can stream or mirror your Macbook/iMac screen to your big screen in your living room! Pretty cool huh? It almost makes me wonder, isn’t this going to push AppleTV’s sales, especially in cooperate environment? Imagine having an AppleTV hooking up to your TV in your meeting room. You can present your keynote just on your Mac wirelessly.

Anyway back to AirPlay, so with AirPlay you will be able to stream/mirror your Mac to your TV, and not only image, even sound will be push over to the TV. Thus you can stream any movie to your TV.

Check out Insanely Great Mac‘s Video, he have done a demo on it:

Apple’s New Ads – AirPlay & FaceTime make it an iPhone [Video]

2 new iPhone 4 Ads

Apple just launched 2 new TV Ads for iPhone 4, advertising the power of AirPlay and FaceTime. Honestly, I think this might be the 2 newest and most unused feature that iPhone 4 have, which users might have forgotten or not knowing the function at all.

I feel that it is good that Apple remind us the users again on this 2 new features and showing us the way it might be useful to us. AirPlay is really a very useful feature especially if you want to share or show pictures or videos to everyone on a large screen. FaceTime is always there when I wish to see my mom’s face.

This 2 features might not be as important as calling or smsing,but when you need it and it is there. The feeling is great. So enjoy the 2 new ads by Apple:
