As I noted in my previous post, I’m a big fan of the Apple TV, but it’s not without it’s frustrations. Aside from the YouTube login problem, iTunes Match — which has so much potential — can be a little glitchy at times.
The title says it all. We have an Apple TV (3rd gen) which I otherwise love, but… It won’t let me login to YouTube. Very frustrating, as I would love to be able to access my “Watch Later” list, etc. directly from the Apple TV.

Every now and then I run across pdf documents on the web that I want to save into Evernote. My primary browser is Chrome and I have the Evernote Web Clipper installed. Unfortunately, that only snags to the URL and leaves the pdf behind.
