Your video for Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended is false.
At time index 1:21 you show the selection being "filled" but there is no way in this world the software would know what the image looked like behind the subject.
While i've always been a huge advocate for the Adobe software titles, that video is an out right lie. The fact that it "fills" with a twin peak mountain means you had a second image without the subject

I'd be interested in what video you are referring to as well.

Have you tried Content Aware fill for yourself or read any of the papers on how the technology works? There are plenty of customers that will tell you the amazing results they can get from using the tool. That's not to say that it works 100% of the time. There are cases where it falls down with less than desirable results. No technology is perfect.

If you can’t be bothered to test the feature yourself at least read the Help:
