Rumour has it Apple are planning a TV that can understand gestures and voice aimed at it and respond to them.
Firstly, I'm assuming iTV won't be allowed, you know, with consumers getting confused with the channel and the device both named the same....in the same way we get confused with a coffee shop called apple and a computer manufacturer, or does it only work one way?
Also, what exactly is this going to be used for? One quote says
As opposed to the channel up channel down nightmare we live in now? Surely the idea of a TV is you sit there, you watch it and that's it. By integrated I take it to mean no remote, because there is very little else a TV can do isn't there?Quote:
The late Steve Jobs was quoted in a posthumous biography as saying: 'I'd like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use'
So it will do things like "switch to BBC3"? Wowzers, I cannot wait [/sarcasm]
Seriously though, I take it this is going to be aimed at existing Apple users, so they can upload movies from another i device?
