Because my clunky HDMI cable is not an indoor jump rope!

I would use it to cut free myself from my restrictive digital umbilical cord! So long living room tripping hazard!! The tethered tyranny of the HDMI cable is OVER!

Hurray for McTiVia!

I would use it to stream music from iTunes to my receiver, stream movies using Plex, and of course, just use my TV as a huge monitor.

I'd use it to present various things onto a bigger screen of course, as a router of course, duh, & probably as a "battle ground"/perch fighting arena for my cockatiels (I'd have to chew & poop proof it of course though). :o)

I'd use it to watch videos of my 4 year old son trying to kill himself in various ways.

One more way to further complicate my life by way of trying to make it easier. Getting rid of cables all over is a greta way I'd start using it!

We are saving money by cancelling the cable service, who need it any way in the new Internet era?!, Right now using a HD cable to stream news, movies and pictures from MacBookPro to TV. It will be a completely new experience to have a wireless freedom!!!! And will open new opportunities for using Mac+TV for work, video editing, and who knows what else will look better on the big screen!!! Very looking forward and hopping to get one.

I am not a big enough couch potato and this would help me become even more motionless and grow a larger ass then ever. Not having to buy this I could spend my money on big ass size pants.

Make everyone who can see my TV from outside my window jealous!

OH and I would ALWAYS have MacLife as my homepage on all my browsers!

I would primarily use this McTiVia in an educational setting, displaying Keynote and other content (including video clips, etc.) from my MBP to a large HD screen in our church's coffeehouse. This would be ideal for visual learners and youth.

To stream nursary rhymes from my macbook to TV for my 2 year old kid. He would be lot happy to see his rhymes on big screen.

My wife likes to work on her projects while watching Hulu, and since we don't have cable, yet have a large plasma screen given to us, it would be awesome to say the least, to have her be able to stream her shows, and not to mention her video as she teaches her classes to a large screen, simply and easily.

Thank you for the opportunity.

I'm pretty sure that, armed with this, I would be able to balance the budget AND satisfy the OWS crowd.
If only there was a way to get one....

Surf the net, watch movies, video clips and photos!

I would use it to show business presentations on the big screen in our office.

I'd stream my MBP to my TV, in fact I think I would have to buy a new TV just for this!

Perfect for when I put DirecTv on hold after the football season. Gotta have my Daily Show and this would sure make it easier.

jgoar

I would use it to break the stupid monopoly that Charter Cable has on TV.

krislynch

I would love to use this for business - presentations and as a product I can recommend to clients.

I would also love to use it to add even more functionality to my TV than what I already have via Apple TV - such as running Hulu Plus, for starters.

This would be perfect for my college friends and I to always be able to watch a movie on the big screen without having to hook up messy cords...we could hook it up in my dorm room or hook it up to the big tvs or projectors in the common room for some pool and a movie!

avatar

guito8

i would stream a movie in the front room then pause it then watch the rest in the kitchen and the my bedroom at the same time!!!

avatar

I could use this device to evolve my TV viewing habits so that I can pause my viewing on the kitchen LCD when I'm done with my dinner and re-start it in the living room HDTV, just like in the AT&T ads :)

avatar

gwill

I would use this to stream hbo go since it is disabled by airplay

avatar

This would be an awesome device to use when I visit my grandmother. I could bring my computer and show her all kinds of things; videos, pictures and even YOUTUBE!, all without wires.(wires + wheelchairs don't mix well)

avatar

Would love to use this for School and work. It would be helpful to give presentations for my catering business to potential clients and for school to show my school projects to the class

avatar

I would love to be able to use this with my display at school, for my students to be able to view a variety of programming much bigger than my notebook screen.

avatar

macbookpro220

I could show photos from the couch with the family! That would be awesome because now I have to sit on the floor next to the TV.

avatar

mattsmac8

I would it to get rid of my cable service and watch YouTube videos all day.

avatar

I would use it to complement my Apple TV by having my Mac stream videos from Hulu and other TV networks' own websites.

avatar

iSki_iMac

Stream media from my mac, of course.

avatar

werlej83

Show all my work on my TV, so I could sit on the couch and be even lazier on my work from home day :)

avatar

krossbow

I work in a school. I 'd see if we can use it with the kids to spice up morning news in the TV studio.

avatar

I would use it for animal planet, im a big fan of tigers and elephants haha.

* Quick question, How would i know when i Win/Won?

avatar

My friends and I love watching movies in our dorm room but we have so much stuff on the computer that we'd like to watch. Unfortunately, all of us crowding around the computer screen doesn't work too well so this would be an awesome gadget for us.

avatar

I'd like to try XBMC or Plex on my old MacBook connected to the TV. This would certainly make it easier.

avatar

oppodude

It would be nice to go wireless so that my little doggy will not rip out the cable from my macbook time after time again.

:)

avatar

Bazinga

i would hook it up to my TV an when everyone asked about it i would tell them that i learned of it on MacLife.com and how awesome that site it for all things Mac & more!!

avatar

SJHartley

What would I use it for??!!

To take over the world from the comfort of my living room..........

Since I do not have cable this would allow me to stream my mac to the tv. Looks like a really cool device.

avatar

acm-mobile

Would finally make my Hdtv world wireless!

avatar

With this I would get my HD HomeRun and not be renewing my satellite tv contract. Who needs satellite tv with Netflix and over the air HD?

avatar

agrudsky

I would mainly use it for presentations, because I have my iMac in my office and my TV in my living room. I would also use it for watching movies.

I'd use it to have a giant version of Logic Pro that I could see from across the room ... so I could play guitar and mix audio at the same time!
