Does anyone else think that v2 or v3 of AppleTV is not going to be just a box but instead a TV (or technically a tv-sized internet connected monitor running a native OS)? If Apple is truly going to close the circuit they need a large screen in the living room. An AppleTV-style buddy box or mac mini plugged into a HD TV isn’t going to cut it. Tablet is a great intimate media device that continues to make media portable, but even w/ a stand, it’s not going to replace five hours a day of lean back. iPhone/tablet/touch become remotes.
Interesting opinion piece by Cringely on Steve Jobs. If you don’t think men are driven to greatness by both their noble callings as well as their demons, this may convince you otherwise.
“Steve has a love-hate relationship with, well, everyone.”
