quote: What these signals point to is Apple defining the TV as an iOS portfolio product. This means integration with iTunes, including an app store. This, in turn, means unleashing developer/creative talent through new monetization opportunities. This means new user experiences in discovery. This means FaceTime-like communication through the TV. This means many other things but mostly it means that the TV will be a platform product.The only challenge is a (currently lacking) smooth interface. Perhaps that’s where voice comes into the picture. But whether that is built-in at the next rev of the product or not is not the story. The story is going to be the sustaining improvement in the original Apple TV. A wonderfully asymmetric product begging to be ignored. A product that because of its apparent lack of success, effectively hides all its secrets in plain sight.

quote: The Wall Street Journal report cites private commentary at Apple's 2010 "Top 100" meeting for senior executives as cause for skepticism. At that meeting an executive asked late Apple CEO Steve Jobs whether an Apple TV was in the works, and he responded that the profit margins were too low compared to mobile electronics and that people bought television sets too infrequently to make it worthwhile.
