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".

You're incorrect. Simple universal remotes don't have scripting capability, meaning that to you may have to push a combination of buttons and slide switches to do what you need to, and if your mother in law needs to use the TV, you'll need a two-page step by step instruction on how to turn on the TV, reciever, DVD player, and cable box. Expensive remotes like the harmony allow you to program one button to do a lot of things. It may not be worth it to you, but that doesn't mean it's silly or unnecessary.
