i think this is very good, i hope that apple will push the resolution of the average tv user beyond 1080p, i know they are going to be very expensive but hey, its apple, love them or hate them you have to admit that their devices have very good screen, better than most of the competition in both resolution and quality of the colors
Shhhh... don't tell them about remote controll, they will patent that too!
Well, actually this may be good, if they can improve the end usage system of TV sets somehow... Apple has been good at putting ordinary things and just make the whole to work. They have a lot of know how in user interfaces.
What happens to the TV is the network is out? If everything is Siri driven and you have to proxy through the apple servers to get the results does your smart TV turn dumb? Also that opens up another round of revenue for Apple. Releasing the demographics of what the users are watching and doing with their tv and content.

They have managed to successfully from Xerox, The Beatles, Creative, Cisco, Fujitsu and a host of others
What makes you think they will honour the trademark owned by Independant Television in the UK?
You guys are all nothing but Apple hating assholes. I dont love Apple, but at the same time I dont bash them or hate them. They make good products, just ridiculously expensive. I dont see you guys going out and bashing Benz, or BMW for making their vehicles expensive...
Most people "bashing" apple not because of their price, but shoddy business practice. Have you heard BMW or Benz sueing each other for using the same Bosch component, for example?
Or even suing Bosch for supplying each other rival with the same component?
