I think this is the key difference between Apple's patent and the Osmo: "A camera accessory configured to be mounted over first and second cameras in an electronic device having an electronic device housing, wherein the electronic device housing has first and second opposing sides, the camera accessory comprising: a camera accessory housing; a first reflector in the camera accessory housing that is configured to reflect light for the first camera to point a portion of a...
"The iPhone maker's proposed solution, a patent entitled "Camera Accessory for Angled Camera Viewing," would use a system of reflectors to bounce light into the camera lens, and might attach via methods like magnets, clamps, a suction cup, or even removable adhesive." This is exactly what the Osmo is. It's a mirror in a housing that hangs on the top of an iPad.  "Apple further offers the possibility of using a stand." For the Osmo, the iPad sits in a stand holding...
See https://www.playosmo.com/en/ It sounds like Osmo already does what this invention claims.   We have one and my daughter really enjoys the "Masterpiece" app.
That is very sad. Apple used to be aimed at creators not consumers. Apple used to prominently feature people taking pictures, shooting movies, composing music, etc. and provided the tools for people to create and display their works of art. Not having a way to display 4K content on a large screen goes against that ethos. Take pictures and shoot video with your iPhone - and show it off to your friends and family using an Amazon Fire TV. 
No, you are not. For all the whining about 4K specs still being in flux, 4K TVs not being widely adopted, blah, blah, blah... Apple is touting the ability to create 4K content while their fancy new aTV can't display it. That ain't right.
A9X: better GPU = more pixels pushed = longer lived device. Also higher cost.Did they mention 4k support? I don't think so.Input accessories.
Disappointed they went with the A8 instead of A9. Will it prove better to AirPlay from an A9X device? We didn't see accessories: Joysticks, controllers, keyboards, etc. It will be very interesting to see how well Siri works. No wired external storage. 
A very nice thing about the iOS app ecosystem is that obsolescence is a gradual process rather than complete and immediate. With consoles, when a new one comes out, all your old games are landfill. With iOS, only new high-end games require the latest & greatest. Over a few years, more and more apps require the latest, but those that don't tend to target the lowest possible OS to maximize potential customers. That longevity in aTV will appeal to casual gamers & app users.
So one set of analysts publishes a bunch of garbage on why Apple is "doomed" and suppress the price. A few weeks later another set of analysts publishes papers on why Apple is a bargain driving the price up. Repeat. Even though by all technical analysis Apple is a low-priced, wildly profitable, stable company.
