Yes and no. Boxes like the ATV, Roku etc have likely given the nets the numbers to see that this kind of thing would be feasible. So in that sense yes Apple did it. But a no in the sense that it was also a matter of the contracts ending so now the opportunity is there
First off. No one is saying this will be the only way to access. Existing cable hasn't announced a shutdown.As for pricing, it will only go up if you cut cable. Most companies like TWC bundle services. So say cable is $50 a month and internet is $50 a month. They offer you both for $80. If you cut cable you lose the discount. Keep it and you keep that price and with most major players access to this iOS etc app anyway
iOS, if not jailbroken, is very very difficult to infect with any kind of malware so the fact that THIS reddit is launching an official app may just be a good thing.
Dang skippy. Steve would leak it right, have an engineer lose on in a bar.THAT is how you do a product leak
Yep. And over the years there have been a lot of rumors that were likely not things Apple was working on, but they made great hit fodder
Give me an HDMI port and a 40 inch or higher model and I'm in.Well I want a unicorn, a million dollars and a hot, raunchy monkey sex threesome with Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston. We are both certain to be disappointed
That is one possible scenario, but not fact. It's also possible that GTAT simply wasn't producing the volume they promised Apple they could make. Thus Apple didn't pay them because the items were not delivered.
That's why this comany has lawyers etc. to say it before they sign an unreasonable etc contract.They knew the game they were entering into. They agreed to play it. So if after the game has started they realize they can't win, they don't get to claim the didn't really understand the rules. There was a time to ask questions and they didn't etc.GT Advanced wanted Apples money and went for something they couldn't pull off in the end.
Maybe, maybe not. yes it's Apple but not everything they do is roses (remember Ping). And folks are more likely to be faithful to a merchant than insisting on a particular way to pay. At least for now. By the time they start to make payment demands, many companies will be up to speed on some system. Might be Apple Pay. Or like with Best Buy and Walmart it might be something else. 
 If you look at the actual article for several of them it says "At this time" or "do not yet have the equipment" not the suggested "Hell no". They are likely to support Apple Pay, among other options, in the future but need to get up to speed so they don't have a date yet. A few of them might be holding out a bit to see how well the uptake is. If the program turns out to be another Ping why support it.
