Apple TV Unboxing June 25, 2013

Posted by Maniac in Site Videos.

It’s Tuesday, time for our Tuesday unboxing!  Since Apple has changed their proprietary charging port with the release of the iPhone 5 and recent generation iPads, all of Maniac’s stock iPhone adapters and charge cables were no longer going to work if he chose to upgrade.  Instead of buying adapters, Maniac took a leap forward and decided to stream all his content instead of using direct cables, and bought an Apple TV.
