Stream your computer's display to Apple TV with AirParrot

AirParrot is a clever tool which adds makes it possible to stream whatever you see on your Mac or PC’s display to your Apple TV, wirelessly. A great way to watch movies that you have stored on your Mac on your larger TV screen? Maybe: there's audio streaming, overscan support ensures the image will fill your PC, and you can even minimise distractions by hiding the mouse cursor.

Getting up and running could hardly be simpler. After installing the app you need then simply indicate which of your displays you would like to mirror, choose which AirPlay device you would like to mirror to (if you have more than one) and then you’re ready to go.

The app works by encoding your display and streaming the output and in some cases this can lead to a degradation of image quality. Thankfully, there are a series of simple options available that can be used to control image quality to help balance video quality with overall performance. This is already an interesting tool, but future updates are likely to increase its appeal even further.

What's new in 2.7.0 (see the release notes for more)?

- Added Chromecast Audio Support
- Added support for Apple TV tvOS 10.2
- Added support for Apple TV Device Verification feature
- Improved reliability on large networks and when changing networks
- AirParrot 2 mirroring is now recordable by Reflector 2
- Improved device discovery
- Miscellaneous bug fixes and performance improvements

Verdict:

 An app that shows great signs of promise, and is already worth a trial run.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
