    I don't think so. Only certain apps, like Netflix, support video out on a standard iOS device.

    I think that creates another edge for GameSalad... TV out. I recently wrote this...

    I think Apple could have done better with the Apple TV, if it had an app store. Wow... Apple could have entered the console wars. Since the Apple TV doesn't do that much, I simply bought a $30 cable and now I can hook my iPhone up to my TVs.

    I'm not sure if it was technically possible, but what if GameSalad supported TV out and using another iOS device as a controller. Wow... it would basically throw Apple into the console wars and it could make GameSalad very popular. It would be an SDK for an Apple game console.

    That scenario seems unlikely in the near future though. HA HA.

    Photics: I think that Apple will eventually do what you are describing, but they are in no rush and they have no desire to release something half-done.

    Remember, for Apple the "average" consumer is not us. There will be a time when Apps run on AppleTV, it's just not yet. They probably will merge the devices eventually but it's probably part of their longer term strategy once the number of AppleTVs in homes has increased. They don't want to "show their hand" to soon and tip off Sony and Microsoft and Nintendo to the threat that they pose.

    Right now AppleTV would be destroyed by XBox, PS3, Wii, etc. as a games platform. BUT... as a friendly little movie watching device it slips under the radar. Like a Trojan Horse.

    They jailbreak. It's not that hard.

    You can record your iPhone screen from your Windows PC. You will need VNC server software on your iPod. The only one I know of at this time is Veency, and it requires Cydia.

    On your PC, use TightVNC, and on your iPhone install the software named 'Veency' and run it.

    Run TightVNC on your PC and enter the IP address of your iPhone. If you don't know the IP address on your iPhone, open a browser on your iPhone and go to the url: http://www.deskshare.com/mypcinfo.aspx.

    Once you connect, you will have your iPhone screen displayed on your PC. To make a video tutorial of your iPhone application, I recommend using My Screen Recorder. If you're going to include verbal directions in your video tutorial, it allows you to record both the audio from a microphone and the PC speakers at the same time.
