Weekly Poll: Do You Own an Apple TV?

At the end of last year, it looked like Apple just might release a TV in 2012. Our readers were skeptical, but still, many indicators seemed to point in that direction. But here we stand, with the year all but past, and unless Apple decides to release something in the next 4 weeks, 2012 will end without a TV from Apple.

That is, except for the Apple TV. No, Apple doesn’t make a TV itself, but its $99 set top box just might be the handiest little device you can hook up to your TV. Steve Jobs referred to it as a hobby, but it’s been a hobby Apple keeps coming back to. It’s more affordable than ever, so tiny you’ll hardly notice it in your living room, and with AirPlay and a Mac or iOS device, it can be the simplest way to show off a presentation or play a game on the big screen.

That’s why we’re wondering if you have an Apple TV. If so, do you ever use it with your Mac via AirPlay, or do you just use it to play online and iTunes media on your TV? Or is an Apple TV on your Christmas wish list? We’d love to hear your thoughts on Apple’s non-TV in the comments below.
