Some other big stories of of the week.
And I guess well this just -- a little while ago to get.
You your take on it we have a mockup here Kevin you can throw this of this is engadget mockup of what -- believes this new apple TV might look like.
And the reason we're putting it appears next to top stories and it's just kind of broke about an hour to go.
This idea that this could be the next apple TV this little device that doesn't have a screen iPhone like device and almost no storage at all.
Seemingly would connects.
Through the cloud.
And enable you stream your content in 1080 into any DI.
Or 1080 1080.
Yes and -- that's apple TV and you know the rumors aren't -- -- -- they have -- in multiple sources on this.
Multiple sources at apple that it confirm this and that this has been in the works for quite a long time away.
-- -- would hope that this has been in the works for quite a long time so as -- -- talks about that apple TV being a hobby.
That this is likely been in the works for -- -- which you take.
Peter well I mean apple TV so says that it has not been successful route -- -- -- I -- I think it's good jobs -- that a hobby because it as well the -- yes point but obviously you know TV.
You online videos -- become.
Anymore more important that they got if you think about the iPad is the divisive people used to -- video.
-- make sense that you -- you take that same platform and make them and that's of these back to a television and you're gonna happen -- platform.
You know it's just another place it.
That's how I can you bring up a great point about the apps I forgot to mention that it looks like according to the story that there's going to be the -- the iPhone OS.
On this device it won't be some weird skin version -- is first of OS-X -- to -- that the work mobile.
-- -- -- -- -- And and and you know we're out of this and of the iPad to return to original story but it will be absent here and it and it won't matter where we are will be connect at all with.
Yeah Adobe apps that'll be suitable for the screen what the TV -- the last big disconnect its pre and there's going to be huge battle now to connect that screen.
And to make that constant flow seamlessly from please -- apple bought.
Well last year yeah no doubt some of that technology sounds -- that took the stuff.
That they be integrating into this and if they have a way of connecting their local stores wouldn't that's my Mac or whether that's you know.
Time capsule site can access my concept and other people's content.
And focus on the can actually.
And bill that -- -- ecosystem for TV is like -- them for tablets like we've done for phones.
That is neat thing if.
Yet Leo does this though there were still reflect this disconnect in its its I think it's appropriate to be calling a hobby because.
No one knows what to do we get with -- we have Google TV last week and it's still a box that's on top of another box and we kind of don't know how to connect at all what's your take Leo.
Yeah I think on the Internet is just moving into all of these divisions and and so that's what it isn't what's cool about apple is that on their strength -- -- They're Mac OS.
So you know I thought that they would eventually you apple TV in the form of actually selling big screen.
Terrible that's terrible business packages probably are too smart again and actually got out of that business record -- Dell -- very smart and I.
You know that thing is that they came out the forty ends with their beautiful display with iChat enabled I mean I would probably seriously consider it knowing that there's going to be a a premium -- got for their brand.
You that he brings it reap what we you have McNamee right yeah and Mac mini usually home -- set -- wouldn't you know right here I don't know I -- but I have connected -- might -- might make you guys have been crappy Time Warner Cable HD box.
Has it worked really.
Well we're confident.
And we're confident and here's the here's the thing that box socks off the box sucks -- the box of something really important it gets high Def digital cable.
Right which other box in the other boxes that are out there like -- like the Tivo premiere too expensive another monthly service charge on top of it not a great deal.
-- the moxie he's gone nowhere.
Is that the problem is that the cable company's cable providers and and the satellite TV writers to -- Clinton lesser extent.
Are obsessed with controlling that release of -- consumer.
And so they're not doing things that we would love right which is like it was still an open platform for digital TV and make it really easy renewable cool apps on top of our platform.
Which we all -- like make sense right you know.
But from -- from their perspective is like -- we don't want anyone getting in between us and that billing relationship we have the -- so as much as I would love to have.
You know what Time Warner Cable box that runs -- that I can deal might boxing stuff plus watch on my TV shows which would keep -- subscribing to time but what what is becoming Fox's interest for example to get this show only be -- well.
That's exactly like them.
Well exactly and I think you know Mark Cuban talks about the -- is is.
You know one of the things that that that there -- enough bandwidth on the web to stream live hi -- 1080.
230 million people -- up.
-- it doesn't happen look.
Fifteen years Bruce Springsteen -- 57 channels -- nothing -- -- 507 channels and if still nothing on.
But the content is controlled by the cable company's control for the broadcasters and there not willing to open that up.
So you're going to have in the near term the disconnect between these two different boxes and -- one of the problems but.
That cable box provides so much value to the consumer even though it's not a great experience you know we don't -- right.
But it gives us what we want high definition television contest when we want and I think.
