chris From what i read on reviews Apple blocks certain ipad apps like hbo 2 go etc from mirroring since it competes with them. Which makes no sense, since i think they would sell more if they didn't do that. But i have netflix already. So i would be happy with streaming or mirroring safari, facebook, twitter, instagram etc to the tv. I know games are hit and miss but those other apps and maybe like espn radio, spotify would be a reason i would keep the Apple tv and get an ipad.
