4) It's not just about "thin and elegant" it's about "simple" (which almost no TVs are at the moment).
4) Doesn't have to be the TV that does it.

He released the Apple TV. I have physical proof that your sarcasm is meaningless.
You shouldn't need multiple devices.
You don't. You need a TV and one device. The Apple TV. Period. Swap out the stupid screen any time you want. Want it bigger, get it bigger. Want it in LCD or plasma? Get it in LCD or plasma. Get it in OLED, even. But your UI and ecosystem remains the same. Not that hard to get.
People should be able to pop the TV out of the box, enter their Apple ID and be off to the races. Boom!
Sounds exactly like the experience of anyone who has ever owned an Apple TV already.
The writing is on the wall, it's only a matter of time, they're going to make a TV not for rumors, but because that market is ripe for genuine revolution…
It is, absolutely. But not from a stupid, marginless panel.
Sooner I later you'll have to open your eyes to all of this.
Heard that about the iPhone nano and the xMac, too.
Seems that the things that "Apple has to do" are the things that it should be avoiding the most.

4. 799 and 999 macbook airs.
5. Apple TV set and cable box with full cable partnership.
1. Really? When's the new Mac Pro coming out? How about the new iPhone? The new iPad? CHECK.
2. They already have that without silly sizes. CHECK.
3. I can't understand why anyone would want a non-retina device of anything, but this is obviously going to happen. WILLCHECK.
4. They don't need to.
5. Sure hope so.

What do you mean, "unlikely candidates"? They WERE going to buy what is new if it was exactly the same, it wasn't, and so they didn't. That's how the pro world operates: Whine about everything that changes in the slightest from what they already know. Or at least it's what they'd have you believe. Which is why it's only a fraction of my projection.

I don't get it; what's your point? As many people can afford a forced-data iPhone plan as cannot. The phone is meaningless.
