This is a rumor that has been circulating the net for some time and that somehow combines two stories presented here AppleWeblog in recent days: on the one hand, the possible arrival of Siri to OS X and on the another, the launch of Apple TV . According to reports, the team of Cupertino, Calif., has been working on a HD TV for years but the recent release (and the great public reception) Siri iPhone 4S suggest the following: Apple could incorporate technology wizard voice in its future and new TVs.
According to Nick Bilton from The New York Times, Apple executives know since 2007 that the company has in mind a television with the Apple logo, and that in recent years Steve Jobs has pushed engineers to Cupertino develop a new interface for home television.
One of the goals was to simplify the way Apple that users and viewers interact with the TV and the TV. In other words, its goal was to replace, set aside the awkward and confusing remote control or remote control, replacing it (as we have seen, for example, models of Sony Bravia Internet TV) for wireless keyboards, iPhones, and iPads . However, from this rumor, and this seems to be something of the past. The ultimate solution is to incorporate the voice commands through the dazzling technology of Siri .
Remember, as Dani I recently commented that Jobs hinted at the new user interface in interviews published in the official biography released earlier this month by Walter Isaacson. In other words, Jobs told the writer that they had finally cracked the problem and its solution, which the user interface was simpler than we might imagine.
Finally, note that Apple still has much work ahead. According to the source of the news, the company has much experience in the manufacture of television as it has in the creation of iPhones, iPods, and MacBooks iPads:
“The company also needs to wait for price drops on big screens. Although a 42-inch LCD TV from a reputable brand can cost as little as $ 500 [U.S. prices], the Apple TV include electronic components and other technology that could increase its price so uncompetitive. “
It is expected that Apple announced their TVs by the end of 2012, with a possible final release for users in 2013. Can you imagine what it would be an Apple TV? Would you like to control it with your voice, like Siri and iPhone 4S? What do you think would be integrated with other devices and services like Apple iTunes Store and icloud? Without doubt, this rumor is a major trigger for the dreamers geek.
