Apple Appleinsider writes: "An anticipated Apple high-definition television set, complete with iOS features including Siri voice commands, FaceTime video chat and access to the App Store, would be a strong product in a massive $100 billion market, according to a new analysis." Last year I explained my vision of a smart TV too (read the comment), and my ideas were pretty much the same thing AppleInsider discusses about today. Back then I was almost laughed at by most OSNews residents for these ideas. I have the feeling that the people who then found my ideas ridiculous, they'll now find a possible Apple smart TV "natural" and "revolutionary".

kid1: Channel5!
Siri: Done.
kid2: No, switch to Cartoon Network!
Siri: Done.
kid1: No, I want Channel5!
Siri: Done.
kid2: No, Cartoon Network!
Siri: Done.
kid3: Siri, Disney Channel please.
Siri: Your will is my order, kid3.
kid2 & kid1: No!!!!

A nightmare, with twice the noise than today nightmare (Siri answers will add to the kids noise).

A dream will be:

kid2 & kid1: No!!!
Siri: this family is broken, I'm switch off the family TV.

But this dream is already possible, and is not as expensive as any iDevice from Apple. it's called "no TV".
