    I wasn't too interested in the incremental ipad 2 rumours before the announcement, i was thinking of getting one, but wasn't really sure yet.

    The HDMI out really surprised me, i thought with Apple emphasising airplay via Apple tv it wouldn't really do HDMI out.

    Now with the increased homesharing capability and apps that can play different video formats, this seems like a really good product to have around the house.

    I can imagine my parents putting al their photos on it, watching a few videos through the TV etc. Just a general purpose device to have around the house, not a computer replacement.

    What do you guys think of HDMI out and what apps could really benefit from the addition?

    i like the cable. i welcome it, and i'm pretty sure it will allow all apps to be displayed via the cable for the iPad2. however, the iPad1 will have the same ability it seems.
