Some of the replies here are a bit amusing (wanting a full blown iMac with a 55" screen in a $2K TV, for instance). But the most common thing in some of the replies is what you've pointed out, in regard to the pricing on smart TV's (which I would assume this Apple TV would be) vs. those with only some or no internet connectivity.   Other than the scratch & dent sale at Walmart on Vizios, I also haven't seen some of the "great deals" that many here seem to know about. If...
I understand what you're saying. And it is true that the device fits his purposes, as best it can. It's just not a very intuitive process that one has to go through to get from here to there. This is true of most of the universal remotes that I have seen, where more than two or three devices are inter-connected. Here is a blurb from a recent CNET story that includes a feature that is closer to what I (and I suspect many others) would like to see:   "Apple is reportedly...
Nothing at all wrong with that way of thinking.
From what was on the wires, more than a few hedge fund managers dumped AAPL to buy FB. Given that Facebook was flat on its open and now down 10%, while Apple is up 4%, one has to wonder how pro traders could get sucked into the hype that has been Facebook. Watching TV this weekend was like watching a non-stop series of Jim Cramer wannabes. From CNBC to Bloomberg to CNN to Fox News, everyone seemed to be on the pro Facebook bandwagon. I have bought some dogs over the...
  While this is one solution, depending on the brand(s) of the devices in question, it's not always an optimal solution. A friend of mine has a fairly nice home entertainment and gaming system in his den. And the so called "universal remote" he uses to control it looks more like something from NASA's mission control. There are, IMO, still way too many buttons for the average person to even understand what they're looking at, short of taking a class... which he offers for...
I was surprised to see AAPL fall through $550 down to the $525 range. I haven't read anything (credible) that suggests that AAPL will have a negative earnings surprise in the coming few quarters, so buying in this range wouldn't bother me. The only headwind that I can see is the one the overall market might be facing, in regard to the Eurozone situation. Even though there are those who claim that the worst case scenario is "priced in" to the market, I've seldom found...
  But as I said in my post:  "...along with a solid partnership with Time Warner or some other major content providers."   It wasn't an either/or proposition. As for the goal of removing STB's and remotes, whether buying the company or licensing the technology, Tivo could be incorporated into a TV set just as easily as the necessary receiver hardware for satellite service. Right now I have a Tivo unit built into my DirecTV receiver. I assume some DISH receivers are...
  That is the idea that has been in my mind since the Apple "iTV" rumors started. That, along with a solid partnership with Time Warner or some other major content providers. Purchasing Tivo would probably cost Apple in the range of $1.5 billion. But it has a profit margin very similar to Apple's (around 40%). Even if Apple just operated it as a standalone business, until they could better integrate and improve its functionality, it would still be a winner. Even if the...
It is true that all corporations (on Earth) will eventually die, only because this planet's life is not infinite. When the sun blinks out eventually, the corporations on it will die with it. But that doesn't mean that by the time that happens that mankind won't have found other habitable planets, where those (once Earth based) corporations will be able to take up business.   More to the here & now... the life span of a corporation is not predetermined. Corporations,...
    $555 intraday low, followed by a gap-up open. Hmm! Well, that's what people get for being greedy!
