    MacOSXRumors:



    next-generation-of-apple-cinema-displays-to-include-hdmi



    I had heard about new displays arriving at MWSF 2007 back in February. Since then, lots of other rumors about the new displays have emerged and this one is the latest. Having HDMI makes sense, as does also having HDCP. Intel has copy protection built into its consumer hardware which I'm sure Apple is using in the iTV. And yes, I'm sure the iTV has a hard drive of some sort.



    With a new Apple display, an iTV, and a USB tuner, you can have a complete HDTV system. Just add a good surround sound speaker system. Apple may even be working on that, too. I wouldn't be surprised to see an all-Apple home entertainment system next year.



    So, how do you imagine Apple will show off the iTV in its stores next year? Plug it into a Sony HDTV screen? I don't think so. It'll be plugged into a new Apple display for sure. If it has a black bezel, a built-in iSight would be invisible.



    Will Apple have a display with built-in iTV like that rumor said a year ago? I have no idea but there was a lot of truth in that infamous rumor. The iTV is based on Intel's Viiv platform. Viiv was mentioned in the rumor. Front Row 2.0 was mentioned in the rumor and that's exactly what's built into the iTV box. A large flat panel display was mentioned and indeed, Apple is rumored to be introducing a larger than 30" display soon. That rumor also mentioned HDMI connectors and that's what the iTV has and the new displays are rumored to have.



    Maybe that rumor from a year ago was just premature. It originated with some people at Apple, BTW. After it didn't pan out after Macworld 2006, it was thought the rumor was purposely planted by Apple to mislead the rumormongers. I sure caught a lot of hell here for mentioning it but it was a legit rumor, not something I dreamt up.



    It looks like 2007 is the year Apple makes a major assault on the living room.

    You know, for a moderator, you're a nasty twit. Where do you get off telling me or anyone to stfu? This is a rumor discussion forum which I assume is for discussing rumors and a lot of them have been far more off base than anything I've ever said so lighten up already. You don't have a clue what Apple's up to anymore than anyone else so who in the hell are you to pass judgement?

    I know yeah, so I heard. But if you're not even thinking Apple may be even thinking about making a TV then you're clueless as to where Apple is going, sorry but it's true.

    yeah Ireland, so true, sure you are the owner of truth. You know it all. I am so clueless. Poor me.

    Perhaps you should work for Apple, since you believe you are so smart.



    One thing is wishful thinking another thing is to think about the real possibility of a product that is important for Apple's bottom line.



    You believe Apple will make a TV just because you want a solution for your problem as you stated here before. so then sit on a very comfortable couch because you might wait longer than you may think.

    Maybe so, but it will happen. And my guess is that will happen in 2008. It's kind of like the black iPod Hi-Fi, or the black iMac. It's a good hunch to have. 8)

    I didn't tell you you, I asked you to politely. i even said please.



    And you are 100% correct. I don't know what's going on. Which is why I avoid doing what you do and pretend otherwise.
