Apple HDTV tipped to include 3D Imaging Magic

Apple HDTV tipped to include 3D Imaging Magic

It would appear that the next-generation Apple TV set that's been rumored for many, many moons may well be coming with a bang - a 3D imaging bang that's more than twice its worth in bucks. It's being reported today by analysts at Morgan Stanley that Apple will not just be bringing a full-fledged TV set to the market very soon, but that it could very well be bringing with it a barrage of next-generation context-aware or otherwise 3D sensitive technology. This set of suggestions comes from a combination of a rather "ripe" market for an "iTV" product and the fact that Apple has filed a lovely collection of patents over the past set of years that together would create a magical device ready for hot sales and an imminent release.

Apple HDTV product tipped as “imminent”

It may very well be time that Apple introduces another new product, this time taking what they've already got on the market with the ThunderBolt display and the Apple TV set-top box and combining them into one next-level product. This product - or something like it - was tipped this week by Jefferies analyst James Kisner whose anonymous source spoke with a North American cable provider (aka he said, she said, down the line) who said they were "working to estimate how much additional capacity may be needed for a new Apple device on their broadband data network." Another possibility here is that the talks earlier today with Dish and Google may have leaked over into Apple's universe.

Samsung served on a public platter by Conan for Apple

With the Apple vs Samsung USA trail raging hard this week, late night talk show host Conan O'Brien's crew have taken the time to create a spoof video that makes their stance on the subject very, very clear. With the fabulous art of sarcasm you'll find this "Samsung made" video showing off how absolutely nothing alike the Samsung Galaxy S is to the iPhone, the same being true of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 compared to the iPad. Best of all, you'll see a nearly Rastafarian "Stefan Jobes" at the end of the clip - just what you wanted!

Is Apple’s TV Secrecy A Good Idea This Time Around?

Apple is reportedly working on a television. From analysts to reports out of China, all signs point to the company developing a set that would include the latest HD technology, a nice design, and iCloud integration.

Apple television in pilot production tip Chinese sources

After Foxconn's "yes we are; no we're not" turnaround on the Apple television earlier this month, fresh rumors from China now claim once again that pilot production has begun at the long-time Cupertino partner.
