Staples and the Apple TV


You may or may not know…but we have become a full blown, Apple-loving household.  My wife was first in with her Macbook and iPhone, than iMac. The kids LOVE their iPads (mini and not), and now I…love my iPhone and MacBook. Just great products, that work so well. Well, add to the list the AppleTV. If you are in the market for a new take on TV, or just want to be able to use some of your beloved apps on your big screen hi-def flatscreen, I think the AppleTV and the Apple Mac Accessory lineup at Staples may just be for you. The AppleTv is great and keeps getting better.

The Apple TV with 1080p HD gives you all the best entertainment right on your widescreen TV. Choose from thousands of current and classic movies and TV shows on iTunes-many in amazing 1080p HD. Watch live sports in HD. Access content from Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, and more.* And with AirPlay, you can play video, show off photos, and enjoy music from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch on your TV. Plus, Apple keeps adding new apps and services like HBOGo and Watch ESPN. (Netflix, HBOGo, and Watch ESPN requre subscriptions).

For just $99 I think that anyone can get use of of this machine. Vera and I got caught up with the first two seasons of Downton Abbey on Hulu Plus (subscription required). The kids LOVE all the shows they can see at the touch of a button on Netflix. We all love being able to watch videos and play games on the TV that were once only available on our iPad or iPhone! It’s truly easy to use and it make TV a lot more interactive and fun. There’s something for everyone and at a very reasonable price tag. It’s the future of TV, in my humble opinion.’s tiny…it takes up no room in the house (isn’t there just too much stuff in the house?)

Staples also carries a full lineup of Apple Mac Accessories, including Mice, Trackpads, Keyboards, Apple Care, and more! To see it all, click here!

Gwyneth Paltrow Lets 5-Year-Old Daughter Get Ears Pierced

Gwyneth Paltrow gave in to her daughter, Apple’s, pleas to get her ears pierced – something many mothers wouldn’t do.

But it didn’t come easy for the 7-year-old tot.

“We’re strict with them to an extent but we also try to be respectful of who they are and work with them when they really want something. For instance, Apple had been wanting to get her ears pierced from the age of two,” Gwyneth recalled, saying that she and husband Chris Martin refused at first.

“Our nanny is Spanish, so the kids both speak Spanish and are very much connected to the Spanish culture, and in Spain little girls get their ears pierced when they’re born,” the actress explained in an interview with British Ok! magazine. “Apple would see little Spanish girls and says, ‘Why can’t I have my ears pierced too.’ When she was five we let her have her ears pierced.”

Would you let your daughter get her ears pierced at 5-years-old?
