Decisions: Apple TV or Gaming Console?

15 posts in this topic

ok so I'm trying to decide if I wanna hike up for after getting a new TV for my apartment:

an apple tv to go with it with my mountain lion + airparrot for wireless hd dekstop mirroring

or...

getting a ps3 and netflix account to go with it

Which would you go for?

Is there a way to mirror your dekstop wirelessly with the ps3?

the only real question here is... do you want to play games?

if you do: ps3

if you don't: apple tv

as far as I know there's no way to mirror your desktop wirelessly with a ps3.

<have a ps3.

Apple is terrible.

Why so?

Typical comment for Apple hate. Apple makes superior products with high quality but for guys who are programmers and such..sure they suck.

of course i just bypassed the Iphone5 for the S3..Im pretty satisfied so far.

haha I sometimes feel people decide to rip on apple just to rip on apple

It's kinda funny, I just did the opposite on the phone side of things. Had a samsung for 3 years and got an upgrade with Verizon...decided on the iphone this time over the s3.

Anyhoo, I'm leaning towards the Apple TV. I think it'd be cool to play video games again (last game I bought was in like 03') so that's why I'm thinking PS3 but the whole wireless HD mirroring seems way cool.

Apple's OS is great but the hardware is the cheapest crappiest poo around. Someone who wants a mac would be wise to buy a custom rig (which will be more powerful and much cheaper) and install OSX on it themselves.

They do not make superior products and they do not deal in high quality goods.

Of course there are 100 more reasons why Apple is terrible and if you want to know them then just google it.

I added an ApleTV to my home theater simply because I ended up with a credit at the Apple Store.

I dont like the way it buffers Netflix content as much as I like the way my XBox handles it but everything else about the device is superior to the XBox/TV/BluRay payer apps that do the same things.

If games are not the issue than Id go Apple TV.

Being able to just push stuff from my IPad/IPhone to the TV is pretty bad ass.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
