Apple announced a second app in addition to Photo Booth today — Front Row! Front Row let’s you use your Apple for all its multimedia functions, from the comfort of your couch! Taking advantage of the newly released Apple Remote, you can listen to music, watch movies and DVDs, and look at photos all on your TV or Apple Monitor.

Once you press the menu button on your Apple Remote, Front Row loads up in full screen. It has big easy to read icon and text so that anyone in your family can enjoy. It certainly helps that the 100′s of features can all be accessed with the 6 buttons on the remote.

Personally I can’t wait to hook up a Mac Mini to my LCD television at home. Instant home theater in a box thanks to the fine folks at Apple. However, for now it looks like they’re only shipping Front Row with the new rev of the iMac.

On the scale of 1 to exciting? I’d say exciting.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
