Steve Jobs confirms AirPlay for Safari, 3rd-party apps?

Apple CEO Steve Jobs has reportedly responded to a customer email, saying the company hopes to expand the scope of its AirPlay streaming feature in 2011. Mac Rumors reports that a reader emailed Jobs, asking whether Apple planned to make AirPlay video streaming available in Safari and to third-party app developers. In typically terse fashion, Jobs supposedly responded, “Yep, hope to add these features to AirPlay in 2011.” The inability to stream video from Safari or third-party apps, as well as the inability to stream videos shot on an iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS directly to an Apple TV, have been discussed as major shortcomings of AirPlay.

AirPlay for Safari and 3rd-party apps would be nice, but what I REALLY want is AirPlay for video recorded on the iPhone. That’s the killer feature for me, and I was very disappointed to see it wasn’t there.

We all seem to get our knickers in a twist over what is not released in any IOS update. We seem to forget that the IOS is updated regularly and receives a major update at least once a year. What other device OS offers this?

The Microsoft years-between-functional-updates model is now obsolete. Apple is opening its ecosystem, but doesn’t want the mess that was the Msft ecosystem nor does it want the free-for-all that is the Android.

As much as I get anxiety over missing features, friends are still blown away at how simple media manipulation is when they visit my house. As the cloud capabilities mature, this simplicity will expand to the WAN/Cloud.
