Enable Apple TV Subtitles

While a video is playing, hold down the Select (center) button on your Apple TV remote to bring up the Options menu, then choose the Subtitles view. If there are embedded or external subtitles associated with the video they will appear in the list. If you are using Silver Screen to AirPlay video to the Apple TV, it will dynamically extract the subtitles and send them to the Apple TV.

2000 Miscellaneous Gift Ideas

Lift Your 'Book -- Several readers recommended products that make using a PowerBook or iBook easier. To keep your lap from getting scorched, Shawn King <shawn@macshowlive.com> uses the Podium CoolPad from RoadTools. The CoolPad, a swiveling stand that allows air to help cool laptops, has appeared in previous gift issues; the new Podium CoolPad adds risers for increasing the keyboard tilt angle.

George Simpson <georgesimpson@worldnet.att.net> suggests the LapStand, "a lightweight, metal device that quickly unfolds to become a portable desktop. It's easy to carry around (I use it in overcrowded conference rooms when I don't get a seat at the big table), and it is steadier than your lap. Plus, it doesn't toast your thighs!"

Help Your Eyes on Red-Eye Flights -- A PowerBook or iBook screen is plenty bright when working in low-light conditions, but the same doesn't apply to the keyboard. To shed a little illumination on your laptop's keys or the immediate surrounding area - without turning on an overhead light - consider Greg Zeren's gift suggestion: the $20 Kensington FlyLight Notebook USB Light, a small flexible lamp that plugs into a USB port. Power drain is minimal, and the LED light won't burn out like ordinary light bulbs.

Solution for Graffiti Problems -- For those who don't like to write Graffiti into a Palm OS device, or just have too much data to enter, Mike Rohde <mike@rohdesign.com> puts the foldable keyboard at the top of his list. Originally developed by ThinkOutside, the keyboard is available from two resellers: Targus sells a version for Handspring Visor devices, while Palm sells the Palm Portable Keyboard for its handhelds. It's a full-sized keyboard with excellent key action, but folds down to roughly the size of a Palm III or Visor.
