 Frankly, I don't know anyone that likes the 4" screen, including my 63 year old mother. Remember, the 3.5" - 4" screen was a Steve Jobs thing. You have to be able to use the phone with one hand, and even then it was aggravating touching the wrong thing with my thumb half the time.
Apple wouldn't launch a consumer product that costs thousands of dollars.
I think that's going to be an iMac with an A8 chip. That alone would shave hundred of dollars off the price.
Apple has said numerous times it was not going to put a touch screen on a traditional computer.
The "magic wand" is Amazons Fire remote. Unfortunately, it sucks.
 Apple has always said that if they can't do something better than what's out there, they won't do it.
This is how Apple migrates everything while keeping it secret. I wouldn't be surprised if by the time the A9 came out, it was in some lower end iMac's and MacBooks.
"There's no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance." -- Steve Ballmer, 2007 And this is one of the reasons why he's gone. Who cares if Apple is breaking even? The AppleTV is to consume content, which is where Apple makes their money. If they wanted to, they could cut the price to $49 and get even more marketshare. It fascinates me that CEO's have to say things like this. All it does is make them look stupid.
No thanks.
Apple isn't going to use an ARM processor in this. Developers would have to recompile their software to use it, and to run something like Rosetta would require something significantly faster than an ARM processor, that is unless ARM has been leading a secret double life. That said, Intel is set to release it's 5th generation 14nm Core chip this summer which reduces power consumption by 30% and maybe at that point it doesn't need a fan.
