Some new features in the AppleTV 1.1 firmware upgrade beyond You Tube functionality:
Parental Controls: I like this one. Configure AppleTV to limit or ban YouTube content. I know my kid watches YouTube, and I know YouTube is relatively clean (In the interest of research only, I typed in racy keywords on YouTube and got a lot of PG-13 stuff, as well as videos that said, “Hah, you got here thinking you would see sex, but you won’t.)
How to do it: Go to Settings/Parental Controls, set up a password, find YouTube option.
- Expanded screen saver. No big deal.
- Slideshow. Cool.
- Better photo display.
- Check out other iTunes Stores.
Hattip: Playlist mag.
