Look at Jony Ive's work and look at Starck's. I think if you forced Jony to look at Starck's stuff long enough, it would make him vomit.

I've seen a lot of Starck's designs and all of them give me this unsettled, vaguely queasy, feeling. I finally figured it out. Starck takes the themes of minimalist design and uses it to make things that look and feel garish and vulgar. I didn't know that was possible until he came along and actually did it.

I think it's more than just improving on car stereos. It will be in-car computing, a seamless extension of what iCloud/iPhone/iPad does now.

That is already available on most 2013 Mercedes models, as well as some other car manufacturers:

First sneak peek! The iTV!



This television set, retailing for $100, is reportedly the first moderately priced receiver ever manufactured in quantity. Rose Clare Leonard watches the screen, which reproduces a 5x7 image, as she tunes in at the first public post-war showing at a New York department store, on August 24, 1945. Although television was invented prior to World War II, the war prevented mass production. Soon after the war, sales and production picked up, and by 1948, regular commercial network programming had begun. (AP Photo/Ed Ford)

The thing people are not getting is that the term "Television" will be all but obsolete in two years after Apple introduces a product that becomes the primary entertainment and control hub in the living room. It will have a revolutionary impact not only on how we consume content at home, but how we interact with our homes in general. Television is to "iPanel" as radio is to "iPod".

These "Smart TVs" that companies are releasing will immediately seem 5 years old just by virtue of incorporating the term "TV" in their product.

This not blind fanboy praise. This is logical deduction based on the obvious.

"This is logical deduction based on the obvious"
Here's logic for you:
You have "deduced" nothing.

I'd like to know how many people here are going to shelf or get rid of their 40"-50" Television set and buy this thing from Apple?

I am aware this IS an Apple fan site; and also that we don't REALLY know what apple will actually release yet.

I refuse to believe it will ever happen. It's completely unnecessary. Let the people who know how to make dumb panels make dumb panels. I'll plug in my $99 box to any of their TVs and enjoy the exact same thing that I could get from an "Apple HDTV". And this way I get to choose the quality of my panel.

Perhaps you don't understand the process of deduction. It refers to proving a point by invalidating counter arguments against it. You really should be careful in choosing your words, as you haven't proved anything. Corning made a concept video of this a while ago.

Some of the comments are pretty funny, but I'm surprised no one made a reference to people who live in glass houses.

I have long held, pretty much, the same view as you do on this. But the rumors continue to grow and grow.
I have to say, as a shareholder, it really does worry me.

Consequently, I'm not a fan of the design of this ironic citrus squeezer. And fruit juice is bad for you.

Where do the seeds go (other than in the glass). what a dumb design.

I wholeheartedly agree but the Apple didn't create a new product category with the iPad.

I have one, it works great. Most manual juicers don't catch the seeds.

Design is important. But let's get real, designers are not behind technology revolutions. Engineers and scientists are.

That makes sense. You can tip a hat. But cow-tipping is merely the stuff of myths.

Starck has experience in this area

That was designed by Steve Jobs, and is currently being build here in The Netherlands by Feadship, who obviously respect his wish for privacy and won't release pictures, nor any info. I did find this piece:

What the heck are you talking about? The most classic, age-old design from when I was a kid (and that is a while ago), and found in just about every kitchen around the world, has a simple, elegant, circular grill to catch seeds and excess pulp (but let the juice through).

A brilliant, time-tested design: see, e.g., http://www.recipedose.com/2010/03/ma...ess-steel.html

As someone notes above, this guy's design is all hat and no cattle.
