Because expensive in-home technology solutions are going to be all the rage with people in the U.S. that can't even get a decent job to afford a home, much less a home that will have these kinds of capabilities built in. Please. And yes, you need to build it from the wiring upward. Just like Tallest Skil said, "if you're going to force me to buy a $40 light bulb for every socket of my house, you're not going to sell any product." I totally agree with his sentiment on the...
It sure is looking more and more like Apple is prepping for a big product announcement in the Apple TV area. They have been ramping up the content available on Apple TV for quite a little while now. When they open it up to developers and give it an 'App Store', it will be huge. That's when Apple will have the content providers really stand up and take notice. They'll all want a piece of the pie after that happens and Apple will finally have the content it wanted for its...
At this point... does anyone really care?
Manufacturing an entire television in a low-margin market makes no sense. However, an entirely revamped Apple TV set-top box with more powerful hardware, third-party app support, À la carte subscription model Internet television, a revolutionary user interface and iOS device game controls makes perfect sense. I think it is what Steve was talking about in Walter Isaacson's biography.   This may be what we've all been waiting for. Add it to any existing household with...
"limiting it in this manner to our newly developed AT&T Mobile Share data plans out of an overriding concern for the impact this expansion may have on our network"   So basically AT&T is openly admitting that, in spite of 5 YEARS of HUGE iPhone plan revenue rolling into their registers, they have not been using any of it to build out their network. Instead, they have been lining their own pockets and living like fat cats off of iPhone customers (for a half decade)...
We finally got our A15-based "A6" chip in the "iPhone 5". Amazing engineering, beautiful design. I'll be getting two within 30 days.
Are you suggesting that Apple give away an Apple TV set top box to every American household that wants one in order to gain a better foothold in the television market? Although not really a bad idea at its core, don't you think the rest of the world would feel just a bit slighted if Apple were to do this only in the U.S.A.?
How about Apple just outright buy AT&T, fire all current management and replace them with Apple appointees. Then maybe Apple's customers could have a decent wireless carrier for their Apple products, one that treats them with some respect. Thinking just a bit deeper on the subject - it's also the last piece to the iCloud puzzle.
Then please, tell me, why are you here my good fellow?
Precisely! Well put, well put. I couldn't have said it better myself. Apple should be able to compete with CBS for the licensing rights to content - period. If you think about it, just about every form of media has a business model that is now outdated. I think Steve saw that before anyone else really did. He saw the potential to overhaul several media markets and was in a great position to do something about it. It's just a damn shame he wasn't given enough time to crack...
