Apple TV is great. Unfortunately there's only a optical audio output so I have to use analog - digital audio converter to connecting to a PA or Hi-Fi. Airport Express looks like a nice solution for this but it is very unstable and has a big latency. So the only solution for me at moment is WHDI (wireless HDMI-Connection to the beamer).

Competition is always good if you are a consumer so it's great to see another option for sharing in addition to Dropbox. The additional free storage in Copy in comparison to Dropbox could be a winner though perhaps the more important consideration is that Copy offers another space in which to backup important files.
