Thoughts on use of the Apple TV (2015) in the Enterprise
November 9, 2015
Last week, as I was spending quality time with the 4th generation Apple TV, I was brainstorming about potential corporate uses for the unit. It might seem like a strange activity, but the Apple TV already has a number of non-media apps on the tvOS App store. An app like Zillow or Airbnb might be a little strange at first, but when you think about sharing your research with your family/SO, it makes a fairly nice display. On a similar vein to that, it’s very common to have TVs in conference rooms these days to hook up computers. Many businesses opt to use Apple TV’s and airplay for the hookup. However, what apps could be used?
A few days with the Apple TV (2015)
November 6, 2015
Last week saw the release of the 4th Generation Apple TV. Being the first Apple TV featuring the new tvOS, it was the first device in the model’s 8 year history to have user-installable apps. Just like on most modern platforms, having the ability to install your own applications is incredibly useful and powerful. There are some interesting applications which I think will show up down the line relating to business use, but we’ll talk about that later. For now, how does it work in real life? For real people? I’ve spent a few days of quality time testing out my Apple TV and I can safely say I need a new couch.
