Steve Jobs at D8 video: on Apple TV, Google TV, and TV in general

If Google TV runs off iPad-like chipset, could Apple TV?

Now with Google TV on the...

iTunes LP was Record Labels' Idea?

GigaOm is reporting that, contrary to speculation that Steve Jobs wanted to return us to a more analog time when we bought new albums and sank back for ours drinking in every liner note and detail, iTunes LP was actually the record labels' idea: I’m told by an industry source who preferred to...

Could the Apple TV be Replaced by the iPhone, iPod, or iTablet?

With Apple consolidating its Apple TV offerings this morning down to a single 160GB SKU at a lower $229 price point, we're once again split between Apple axing their "hobby" or giving it a much-needed refresh. If Apple does axe the Apple TV, however, something would need to take its place in the...
