  1. Apple could be preparing to demonstrate a new operating system for the Apple TV set-top box at the Worldwide Developers Conference in a couple of weeks. The OS is much...

  2. I really hope that this iTV will support Natural resolution, which is the 4k x 4k. I'm thinking that if it's just 1080p...well...everyone else does 1080p; so nothing special there.

    It's a shame that other companies don't really lead the technology revolution; in that regard, that god there's Apple.

    ...and no I'm no fanbay. I don't own any apple products.

    looks like the Nintendo Wii.
  4. I really wish they would come out with a real name for this apple tv thing. Every time I see a story about iTV I'm wondering why tech sites are talking about a uk tv channel.
  5. I'm suprised we haven't seen a home gateway/server yet. What I mean is a basic system or applicance that takes all inputs (cable, internet, broadcast, phone, LAN, wireless, whatever) into a central system and redistributes to various devices. It could record data (media, audio, phone, voice mail, etc) and playback to numerious devices. Using standard ethernet/wireless your home applicances could connect for a smart home system. Then all the devices you use simply connect to this. As opposed to now where basically everyone is comming out with various methods that all need an internet connection and work in various ways.

    Personally, I'm expecting a law suit from the uk TV channel.
    Everyone just got through with an upgrade to 1080p capable displays. I have my doubts that the market will support another expensive upgrade to 4K or even 8K at this time. Give it five years or so, then the market might welcome it, IMHO.
  7. Does it have Siri too? I thought it'll be fun having a tv that you can talk with :p

    Still a few bugs to work out in Siri
