Apple Discussing the "Future of TV" With Media Execs
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Apple is pushing forward with its plans to release a full-fledged television set and in the process re-invent the way people experience content in their living rooms. This of course involves dealing with the Devil's sons: Media Executives.
According to sources close to the project Apple's vision includes a wirelessly connected television that utilizes streaming content. However, Apple's innovations, and the discussions with execs, revolve around what would be done about Apple's current lineup of devices including the iPhone, iPod, iPad, and computers. One reported solution involves an iCloud integrated DVR system that works across all Apple devices.
Still, how consumers would be forced to pay for this content is unclear.
"It has also broached the idea of licensing content directly from media companies for some sort of subscription-TV service, resembling the packages now offered by cable operators, but the talks have been 'exploratory'." - Wall Street Journal Source.
I wonder if Samsung will answer back with a Santa bashing anti-Apple commercial?

Lets just hope its not iOS based. iOS is starting to get a bit annoying.

Starting at $5,000.00 for a 20 inch screen? I'll pass, then in another year they add 2 more screws to the back of the tv, and market it as a new innovation with a $6,500.00 price tag this time. Hahahaha.

I'd be more then happy to take your 'annoying' iphone/ipad/ipod out of your hands. I'll happily send you my nokia cellphone from 2001
P.S - that image in the article has to be some of the worst photoshopping i've seen in my life. Did you guys use MS paint ?

Meh, it sounds cool but I know it'll be limited as to what you can do. I already have a 55" LED and a G5 Power PC. I'm gonna replace the PPC with a quad core MacMini and I'll be far ahead of the Apple TV. Using my iPhone, iPad or wireless mouse and keyboard. I may not have voice controls, but I do have VLC!

^^ that would be cool to use your iPhone/IPad/iPod as the remote for this TV.

Apple's pinning the future on iOS, get used to it. Completely controlled, closed, and a cash-cow for Apple.
