How Can I Access a Youtube "Channel" Through an Apple TV?

Youtube has a politics hub where they are going to be live streaming the US presidential debates. Despite my Apple TV's (2nd gen, jailbroken) YouTube app, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to access a particular channel through it, short of using the dodgy jailbroken browser which tends to drop out. Am I missing something obvious?

Is our house killing our MacBook chargers?

In the past year or so, around four MacBook chargers have basically stopped working (I've lost count as this includes a couple of old chargers from early MacBooks we had lying around), all in mysterious fashion. Generally they overheat more than I think is normal, and often they switch to the dreaded, "Not charging" status. On one of them, the rubber insulation melted completely then buckled. I am wondering whether it's just a coincidence that so many chargers have died, or if the wiring in our old house could be to blame? [more inside]

My Mac Mini wants to be an extreme right winger

Are the 13" MacBook Air build-to-order options worth it?

With her black MacBook on its last legs, my sister is going to be getting a new 13" MacBook Air soon. The stock 256GB model includes a 1.8GHz Intel Dual-Core Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz processor and 4GB of (1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM) memory. The build-to-order options are a 2.0GHz Intel Dual-Core Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz and 8GB of RAM for $90 each (Education Store prices). Knowing that processor and memory upgrades aren't possible later on, would either of these options make a big difference in performance? She uses it mostly for Office documents, some CS5 work, streaming video, web browsing and music and is hoping to keep it as her main computer for at least 4 years. Thanks for any input.
