Looking at pictures

Last night, we were sitting in the living room.  We had just finished copying all of the scans of our ultrasound pics over to the AppleTV.

As a quick side note – if you don’t know what AppleTV is – it’s a pretty cool little box (about the size of a portable DVD player).  It stores digital pictures, videos, and music and will play it back on the big screen.  We currently have all of our digital pictures (several thousand), all of our cycling training videos (dozens of hours worth) and all of our music (almost 18 days worth) all on this little box.  And it is not anywhere near half full…

So back to the story.  We had copied the ultrasound pics over and were getting ready to watch the “slideshow” on the big screen.  The AppleTV automatically picks some music to play in the background while the pictures are flashing across screen.

We turn on the TV, turn on the AppleTV, select the pictures we want to watch, and hit play.  And here’s where it got a little weird.  The first ultrasound picture flashes up on the screen – and the background music that it picked to play was “Hallelujah” from Handel’s Messiah.  Nearly 18 days (that’s thousands and thousands of songs) to pick from and it chose “Hallelujah” for the ultrasound pics?  Especially when we were watching it on the day when we learned that the first trimester screening went exceptionally well.  Very interesting indeed…
