LG spills all the bean (bird)s on webOS for TV, gets first crack at Netflix 4K

As somebody who got into this business by covering Palm and webOS, it's safe to say I was at least mildly interested in where LG was going to take webOS. (LG bought webOS)[http://www.webosnation.com/lg-purchasing-hps-webos-division-licensing-webos-smart-tvs] from HP nearly a year ago, but the two had been (working together for months before)[http://www.webosnation.com/gram-working-lg-open-webos-tv] to bring webOS to LG's TV line-up.

Leading up to today it was a little vague on what webOS on TVs would look like, work like, and how far LG was willing to go with their little project. There weren't any indications of what exactly their plans were or how big they planned to go — if you'd asked any pundit leading up to this week what to expect, they likely would have told you to expect webOS to be on maybe a single series (same innards, different screen sizes) of LG TVs. How it would work was a big unknown.

What will Apple bring to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad with iOS 6? What will be the "tentpole" features to take Apple's mobile software into 2013? With WWDC 2012 coming in just over a week, and an iOS 6 beta widely expected to come with it, now's the perfect time to take a look and see what makes sense.

We've already seen some of what is likely coming in iOS 6, including a new version of the Maps app that replaces Google data with Apple data. It wouldn't surprise us in the least if it brings turn-by-turn navigation with it either, by way of Siri...

But what else could Apple bring with iOS 6?
