When it comes to Apple products working with the television, it's generally either hit or miss - for example I, personally, have it in my column signature
that I use an iPad for a VCR, playing Netflix shows with it all day long (that is, before and after work, of course.) Up until recently, the app didn't function well unless you had it turned to portrait mode. Recently an update fixed this and it's perfect. Similarly, I've got a friend who purchased an Apple TV and used it for a week, then never touched it again, while I've got an uncle who has the same unit and has used it basically every day since he got it. Today we find an application for iTV, a name for a product that may well push Apple to the brink of one of our most universally American products since the dawn of color sets.
