    The AppleTV makes an especially great gift for a Mac or iOS user who doesn’t already have one. It’s pretty sweet for someone with an HDMI TV set even if they don’t have any other Apple product, as it can set them up with YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and movie rentals for their big screen. I’ve found deals as low as $50 today (“Black Friday”) on 3rd-gen AppleTV units, making them a very reasonable xmas gift even for people you don’t like that much!

      Do you mean the Twelve South Book Book that I show in the video? It is for sale in a variety of stores. But why not order it directly from their web site?

      Cool, thanks. Since making this video I got the new one for the iPhone 5 too. They made some great improvements like having the phone snap into place instead of slide in. You can get to the buttons easily. And there is a hole for the camera which wasn’t there before.

    if I’m in an area with no internet service will the apple TV device still work with a movie loaded onto my iPhone?

      In most ways, no. You can’t stream a video from your iPhone to your Apple TV, with or without the Internet. You can do it from a Mac to Apple TV with only a wifi network (no Internet needed). And you can use AirPlay to mirror your iPhone’s screen to your Apple TV and show a movie that way, as long as they are both on the same wifi network (no Internet needed). But that may not work for protected videos like movie rentals and such. And other apps may block that too.
