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.
