Apple’s much-rumored iTV (and other iGadgets) could be getting Kinect-like motion sensing tech.
According to White, “the ‘iTV’ ecosystem represents a major innovation for the $100 billion LCD TV industry that will revolutionize the TV experience forever.”
Feel like being disappointed? If your answer is “no” then you probably shouldn’t read about the latest awesome rumor about the Apple TV.
The latest rumor to circulate around the Internet about Apple’s alleged television set indicates that the company has taken another baby step by testing the product outside its offices.
In the most showy hint yet that Apple is building a television set, Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a new interview that the TV set was a relic from the past and that his company is intensely interested in changing that.
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has some new predictions about the highly rumored Apple television product, which could revolutionize the TV content industry as we know it.
Apple’s long-rumored revolutionary television set product is closer to hitting retail shelves than originally thought, according to Jefferies & Co. analyst James Kisner.
New rumors of the much-anticipated Apple-branded television set (a.k.a. iTV) have surfaced regarding launch partnerships with major telecom companies as well as the device’s user controls.
Apple is allegedly assembling components for a 32- and 37-inch iTV, the Apple branded television set that can connect to the internet for streaming media.
The economics of the consumer electronics industry dictate that on a long enough timescale, all products will become low-margin commodities. The companies that make products household names are destined to fade from the public’s memory. Will Apple suffer the same fate as others before it, such as RCA, who revolutionized television sets in a similar fashion but were relegated to the dustbin of history decades later?
“Siri, record all new episodes of the Desperate Bridezillas of Jersey Shore.”
Apple has apparently turned to Jeff Robbin, who created iTunes and co-developed the iPod, to spearhead development of an integrated television set.
Senior research analyst Gene Munster says an Apple-made TV could be coming as soon as the end of 2012 or the beginning of 2013.
As if we needed any more rumors surrounding Apple’s media event on Wednesday (we covered the major rumors in an earlier post), we’re now hearing that the company may finally bring Netflix’s Watch Instantly streaming video service to its revamped Apple TV, three unnamed sources tell Businessweek.
Apple’s next big media event is set for this Wednesday, September 1 at 1PM EST (10AM PST), and as always, there’s no shortage of rumor and speculation floating about. We’ll be at the event, and will be following any major announcements. But first, let’s take a look at what Apple may have up its sleeve.
Roku aggressively lowered the prices of all of its internet video streaming set-top boxes yesterday, in an attempt to remain competitive with upcoming web video-to-TV offerings like Google TV, Apple’s revamped Apple TV (which may be called iTV), and Boxee’s set-top box.
As if we needed more evidence that Apple is planning to launch a new Apple TV (which will most likely be called iTV), now there’s word that the company is preparing to let iTunes users rent TV shows for 99 cents, according to Bloomberg.
There’s little doubt that TV and the internet world will eventually merge, and Google and Apple are both making efforts in that direction. Devices based on Google TV are launching this fall, and Apple is expected to launch a new, stronger version of its Apple TV (now dubbed iTV) sometime next year.
Here’s our roundup of the week’s tech business news. First, the most popular stories VentureBeat published in the last seven days:
In May, we reported that the next Apple TV would potentially retail for $99 and run on iPhone-like hardware with iOS. It was an exciting reveal for a product that has long been ignored by Apple — but now it appears that the news surrounding the new Apple TV isn’t entirely rosy.
