which I read...  "Everyone buys a training phone first"  (see shift in WW iPhone growth [20% YoY in the last year].Android is effectively market research for Apple, and a cheap 'try before you buy' option for most consumers.  Apple hones in on market direction, and users hone in on value.   The world, where phones are bought without subsidies, will be a slower conversion, but they will convert.   But figure that that top 10% will migrate to Apple.... and stay.  So Android...
Speak for yourself ;-) I can barely afford Apple Products... 
 Err,  I think he was sarcastically pinging on the spelling/usage error for Exxon MOBIL
+1  you feel it's silly, I feel it's risk averse.  Apple takes enough Billion dollar risks (most succeed [OSX, migration to x86, iPod, iPhone, iPad, Aseries, Watch], some fail [GTAT], MobileMe)  that when they don't take the risk, I'm comfortable they've done their due diligence.  If you feel it's silly, buy a share of apple and start a proxy fight to throw Tim Cook out the door for all his silliness.

you're just adding the TV... and in most [US] houses the cable modem is behind the TV... and this would then replace the massive cable box. I'm sure a lot of people said a tablet without a keyboard was too early.;-)
re: 2:  Because your phone and wrist aren't home all the time, and Internet sometimes goes down (hence a cloud solution ain't perfect) re: 3:  adding Siri costing money?.  A8 chips are probably less expensive than the current A5 chips (single purpose factory floor real estate being the most expensive thing).  Your phone is your new remote, and any new remote will be force touch anyway.   Your TV will be on, so the speakers are taken care of (or a $3 speaker that turns on...
One Word:   iMac. Right or Wrong, Apple is all about a single 'high value' product that solves your problem.   Anyone who has a micro Torx screwdriver is not Apple's Target Market.
bzzt.   Think Different. a TimeCapsule is much less a router than a storage server attached to your Wireless Access point... When your largest data consumer in your house is your 4K AppleTV, it may behoove you to have a (SSD) disk very near or in your AppleTV.  At that point, Why not make your AppleTV into your content Server(if I'm subscribed to Game of Thrones... it would be nice for it to be delivered and embargoed locally)/ backup server/Wireless Router.   I certainly...
you gotta get developers to develop to the new service.  If your timeline is an October launch of subscribable 'channels', you'll want a 2-3 months of hard core developer time to populate the 'channel store'     IF they announce... you'll probably see a current AppleTV app partner (e.g. HBO) showing the beta of how they will integrate with the amazing new subsystem.
