a) I'm psyched with anticipation to receive my iPad in a few days when it arrives.

b) Do any of you have Apple TV? If so, is it worth getting?? My sister's boyfriend was telling me about wirelessly streaming content from his iPad to Apple TV, which seems pretty sweet.

I just crossed the Apple TV off my christmas list this morning. Sounds nice, but really, how often would I stream stuff from my iPhone/iPad (if I had the latter)? Photos from trips, I guess, but I can just load them on a USB stick and plug it into the TV anyway. I can't imagine there's much content on an iPad that would be preferable to view on a TV. Could be just me, though. I also don't see much use for an iPad while many others do.

It depends on what you are going to use the Apple TV for. There are far better media players out there- I prefer the WDTV Live Plus (or whatever the latest one is) just because it can play almost anything you throw at it and that's my biggest need. But, if you don't have your own digital video collection then an Apple TV would work just fine. It really depends on what apps you use a lot and if you have family to know if the mirroring feature really matters.

Got me a Kindle Fire for $123, loving it so far. Anyone have any suggestions for apps?

were they on sale @ Amazon? They send me 12 emails a day but I didn't get that one :-/

I had it on my wish list but I took it off. For an extra $50 I'd rather have a PS3 that I'd never get time to use.

nah, a random target store accidently priced it at $123 and people at slickdeals went crazy pricematching at walmart and a few other stores. people only had like a 25% success rate getting it done but i got lucky and it worked for me.

Kindle sales quadrupled

I would be apprehensive that they are losing money on the device and plan to make their money on the apps. But then I check out their appstore and there is next to nothing there. They have Plants v. zombies and angry birds then nothing else. wth are you supposed to do with it? I checked out the ebooks and they cost the same as the paper versions. I would much rather have a hard copy over an electronic version any day. I don't get the kindle.
