Apple iTV Tipped in March 2011 Patent Listing, Full Fledged Apple Television Again Questioned

Apple iTV Tipped in March 2011 Patent Listing, Full Fledged Apple Television Again Questioned

When it comes to Apple products working with the television, it's generally either hit or miss - for example I, personally, have it in my column signature that I use an iPad for a VCR, playing Netflix shows with it all day long (that is, before and after work, of course.) Up until recently, the app didn't function well unless you had it turned to portrait mode. Recently an update fixed this and it's perfect. Similarly, I've got a friend who purchased an Apple TV and used it for a week, then never touched it again, while I've got an uncle who has the same unit and has used it basically every day since he got it. Today we find an application for iTV, a name for a product that may well push Apple to the brink of one of our most universally American products since the dawn of color sets.

Apple doesn’t want a full television set

Apple doesn’t want a full television set

It's time to get realistic about all the Apple TV rumors - with an Apple TV device that's essentially a box and a controller that hook up to any TV you like, there's no reason for Apple to take any other steps. Today's inside tip comes from the Wall Street Journal where they say Apple is speaking with cable providers to get an in on wired content not provided by iTunes. While it does make sense that they'd head out and make sure they've got all the right connections in the industry before releasing a product, this simply does not fit with Apple's way of doing business.

Why I Think Apple Will, Indeed, Launch A Television

Why I Think Apple Will, Indeed, Launch A Television

If you follow the rumors surrounding Apple, you know that the company is reportedly working on a television. That television, rumors suggest, will come with iCloud support, apps, and perhaps even Siri. More importantly, it’ll deliver the kind of image quality often not found in today’s televisions.

Apple TV-enabled iMac tipped for 2012 television attack

Apple could ease itself into the TV market by integrating Apple TV and iCloud functionality into an iMac-style all-in-one, one analyst has suggested, using a hybrid TV/computer in 2012 as a bridging step before its true Apple Televisions go on sale. The existing 27-inch iMac is a likely launch point, Wedge Partners analyst Brian Blair wrote in a note this week, with the suggestion that "Apple's redesign of the iMac in the first half of 2012 will likely usher in some … TV capability into the iMac offering first," AllThingsD reports.

Apple Siri Television “guaranteed product” says source

Apple's television plans are a case of "when" not "if" the latest rumors insist, with Steve Jobs' well-quoted "I finally cracked it" comment believed to be referring to Siri replacing the traditional remote control rather than the TV hardware and design itself. "Steve thinks the [TV] industry is totally broken" a source told the NYTimes, one of several who apparently confirmed that Apple was experimenting with TV hardware and software. "Absolutely, it is a guaranteed product for Apple" was the message, with execs supposedly knowing the true Apple TV was on the roadmap as far back as 2007.

Apple forgoes TV sets, focusing on online viewing platform

Apple forgoes TV sets, focusing on online viewing platform

It looks like we're unlikely to see Apple branded television sets anytime soon. Apple CEO, Tim Cook, said back in 2013 that Apple had a "grand vision" for television, but the latest interpretation of that concept is that moving further away from actual TV sets and closer towards an online viewing platform.The television set market is already highly competitive, with Samsung leading the pack. Apple may be reticent to fight for ground in the saturated market when it can always the lead in new, emerging markets, like Apple Watch in the smartwatch market. According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is gearing up to compete with a new online TV service.
