iPod Photo or Apple Stock?

For Christmas 2004 my girlfriend at the time bought me a $500 iPod Photo (40GB). If she had given me Apple stock instead it would now be worth $5,633. That’s an expensive trade off.

Kyle Conroy runs the numbers and shows how much money you could have made if you bought Apple stock instead of an Apple product.

Incredible Air Video App Streams Videos to iPhone with Ease

Air Video Screen shots

I downloaded my first purchased app for my iPod touch this morning. Air Video streams videos straight to your iPhone / iPod Touch, and converts them on-the-fly. Every video I’ve tried so far streams with no problems. I used to have to convert videos with Handbreak (a pretty great program), download them to the iPod, and was then able to watch them (I can hook my iPod up to the big screen in the living room directly). Now I can just stream movies directly to the TV through my iPod. It’s totally worth the $2.99 price tag!

See details on iTunes

Alternatively, you can get the free version, which works great too, it’s just harder to browse your files.
