Apple Televsion Set Coming in 2013
It has been reported that Apple is definitely building a television set. The official announcement, of course, has not been made, but is expected late next year and set for a release of 2013. It is said that this TV has been in development since 2007.
Nick Bilton, from the New York Times, says, "It's the stuff of science fiction. You sit on your couch and rather than fumble with several remotes or use hand gestures, you simply talk: "Put on the last episode of Gossip Girl." "Play the local news headlines." "Play some Coldplay music videos." Siri does the rest.
Of course this experience goes beyond just playing TV shows or the local news. As the line between television programming and Web content continues to erode, a Siri-powered television would become more necessary. You aren't going to want to flip through file folders or baskets of content, checking off what you want. Telling Siri to "play videos of cute cats falling asleep" would return an endless YouTube stream of adorable napping fur balls."
No word yet on how much this television would cost, but no doubt there will a large demand for the product.
