Apple just sold a **** ton more AppleTV's with AirPlay for the desktop.

I think I'll hold out for the 1080p version (crosses fingers, holds breath)

I'm digging everything except the fat tabs in Safari.
I hate it on the iPad and I definitely hate it here.

To soon be able to stream/AirPlay one's computer desktop to one's TV is going to be a sweet interaction indeed! This will get around some of the video incompatibilities encountered with the iDevices, such as the iPad.

(My wife likes to watch missed TV show posted on a TV's website, but some networks still post video in the 'archaic' Flash format!).

And no need to convert non-iTunes compatible video formats such as DivX and MKV into the AppleTV readable version - simply mirror directly from the computer.

Great stuff.

Very happy!! ;)

Apparently I'm the only one who feels that none of these features are exciting or useful.

All of these features could easily be added in a Lion update, this reeks of annualizing OS releases. Adding a few things to Safari, Dashboard and System Preferences are not worth an upgrade.
