Apple TV and the future of gaming

Earlier this week, Nat Brown, one of the original Xbox team members at Microsoft, wrote a piece on the present and future of gaming, and Apple's potential to shape it. From iLike.code: Apple, if it chooses to do so, will simply kill Playstation, Wii-U and xBox by introducing an open 30%-cut...

What could Apple contribute in 2013? Pulling the strings on the intensely interesting future of Apple TV and iTV

During Apple's Q1 2013 conference call, the Apple Television Rumors That Will Not Die were once again raised with Tim Cook, who smacked them back down hard. However, Cook did announce that they sold 2 million of the current Apple TV, up 60% year-over-year. Cook also dropped all the talking points...

Does Apple owe it to shareholders to rush out a new product category?

We’re almost a quarter way through 2014, and it seems some Apple shareholders have ants in their pants. They’re impatient and want to see what Tim Cook’s team is going to do in a new product category, be it an iWatch, Apple television, or something else entirely. I guess it isn’t enough for Apple...

"Today Apple revolutionizes—" What exactly?

The Mac and the iPhone represent two of the most important, most fundamental revolutions in the history of personal computing. If not watches and televisions, what could possibly come next? 30 years ago Apple announced the Mac. Back in 1977 they'd helped spearhead the personal computer...

Does Apple owe it to shareholders to rush out a new product category?

We’re almost a quarter way through 2014, and it seems some Apple shareholders have ants in their pants. They’re impatient and want to see what Tim Cook’s team is going to do in a new product category, be it an iWatch, Apple television, or something else entirely. I guess it isn’t enough for Apple to be so utterly dominant in mobile computing, an industry trend that will keep chugging along for the next decade?

"Today Apple revolutionizes—" What exactly?

30 years ago Apple announced the Mac. Back in 1977 they'd helped spearhead the personal computer revolution with the Apple II, putting a command-line interface into homes and onto desks in a way that had never been possible before. In 1984 the Mac did the same for graphical interfaces, harnessing the power of the mouse, pointer, and windows to make computers even easier to use. In 2001 Apple expanded into music, unleashing the iPod + iTunes, and kicking off the mobile entertainment revolution. 2007 marked perhaps the most important announcement in Apple's history, when they took elements of their existing businesses, personal and mobile, and revolutionized the phone with the iPhone. 2010 saw Apple bridge the gap between iPhone and Mac, and once again made the computer even more personal, with the iPad. Any of those would have been the achievement of a lifetime. All of them, the achievement of Apple so far. But after over 30 years of making the computer even more personal and mobile, what on earth could follow? What else in our digital world, what of the magnitude of the computer or the phone, could Apple revolutionize next?

Is the Xbox One the Apple TV we've been waiting for?

Microsoft's Xbox One, unveiled Tuesday at a special event in Redmond, looks to blur the line between gaming and other forms of entertainment like watching TV. Watching Microsoft demonstrate the capabilities of the new system gave me a sense of déjà vu, because a lot of what Microsoft showed are features that pundits and bloggers would love to see from the heretofore mythical Apple television.

The market, the madness, and the Apple television

It seems you can’t read about Apple these days without someone saying that they’re about to make a big splash into the television market. Apple, of course, hasn't and won't pre-announced anything. But that hasn't stopped Wall Street analysts claiming that the company’s TV strategy is flawed. That's right, Apple's unannounced, unreleased, entirely presumed by someone not-Apple, strategy is flawed. But I digress.

Apple television plans still bogged down in media negotiations

For those waiting on a full-on Apple television set, or even an enhanced Apple TV will more traditional capabilities, it looks like you'll have to keep waiting, at least for now. While Apple is likely ready to go from a technology standpoint, they can't seem to come to agreements with entrenched, terrified media companies over the future of the living room interface and experience.
