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".

Don't buy into their "we don't use mercury" crap. Their hardware is designed so you'll throw away a perfectly good display because the junk inside it is obsolete, or because the battery life is decreasing.

No good reason for this to be integrated into a set. It should be standalone like their current AppleTV.

If they want to make a display with an integrated Camera and microphone, that is one thing.... but make the other hardware completely separate and upgradable.
