Apple TV could be insanely great!

Apple TV is going to be insanely great!

Apple TV could be insanely great!

Apple TV could be insanely great!

Imagine, you can ask Siri to find any show from any network. 500+ Channels.
It’s all there, every show in a search-able database in the iCloud.
Then when she finds it and shows it to you, you tell Siri to record only new episodes and skip the Ads (for reruns).



No scrolling slowly through those arcane slow responding menu systems that the cable providers give you. Program the shows you want to see in seconds hands free or Control it or watch it from your iMac, MacBook Pro/Air, iPad and your iPhone, the last TV remote you may ever need.

The US networks will love it so they can get Hard Data on what people are watching and sell more targeted advertising. It gives them the freedom to show different Ads to different people. People respond better to advertising they prefer rather than shot gunning everyone with the same Ads.



Apple might even provide Television Networks with Ad Servers for custom Ads.
Campaigns could be even more unified across your leisure activities like reading, catching up on news or surfing the web.

Apple replaces every Television station but allows cable companies to sell more Internet service. They bring their Apple Fan Base to the table.

Shopping Channels could be much more profitable if you could shop with your iTunes account, you probably impulse buy a lot more.


Trial Production Of Apple iPhone 5S Already Starting And Earlier Than Expected?


iPhone5S coming in 2013

DigiTimes is reporting from a Chinese-language source Commercial Times report that Apple will begin trial production of the iPhone 5S as early as December 2012.

Perhaps in response to low production rates from Foxcon of the iPhone 5, Apple has seen the need to ramp up the certification processes for parts and components for the new iPhone 5S.

The report also claims that the iPhone 5S could enter volume production in the Q1, 2013. So, the iPhone 5S may appear mid year 2013 or around October 2013

Apple first launched the iPhone in the summer of 2007 and then stayed on an annual summer time update cycle. This schedule held until the launch of the iPhone 4S which occurred in October 2011. Apple adopted a fall-release schedule with the iPhone 5 in 2012. As a result, many have expected the iPhone 5’s successor to launch in the fall of 2013.

Apple needs to have frequent and incremental releases for the phone to fend off competition such as Samsung and Microsoft.

Competition in the SmartPhone arena makes for more consumer choice.

Expect to hear more detailed reports in the near future that can validate this early report. It seems that manufacturers are not incentivised to keep Apple’s secrets. So other component makers will continue the leaks trend.
