Got an Apple TV yesterday and am streaming iTunes and Spotify to the hi fi through it.

I just can't go to bed! Being able to listen to almost anything with a couple of clicks is amazing. I was trying to turn in a couple of hours ago (2 yr old boy and 5 week old girl who have zero respect for weekend lie in) but this darn thing is keeping me up!

I was also just going to have a glass of wine but I've nearly emptied a whole bottle.... doh!

I'm only on a free account as well... think the premium one is probably a must soon.

The picture is well chosen then. And if this is what youngsters do to you, just wait till they are teenagers.Straw and wine box spring to mind.

Edit- just to mix posts

I did the same thing on Thursday.

A 01:30 finish with a 07:30 start at work the next day is not a good plan.

Thoroughly enjoyable at the time though!

Few, not just me then. The AEX and Spotify Premium is a life changing upgrade!! I can't leave the bloody things alone.

Check out my playlists built up from recommendations from others; just type in spotify:user:igglebert to the search bar.
