Samsung working with Apple on AirPlay

[As Apple seeks to keep up in the streaming space, AirPlay support will allow more iTunes users to see their content in more places.]

The new MacBook Air ups its direct predecessor in the categories — it’s clearly a better computer than the previous version — and people have been waiting for the Air to come back with Retina display, TouchID, and the larger track pad — all necessary standards on modern MacBook computers.
