Apple Today Samsung AV product lead Chris Moseley had comments about Apple's rumored entrance into the television marketplace that sound eerily similar to that which Palm CEO Ed Colligan's said a few years back about how Apple's ability to simply walk into this market and figure it out like they had managed to do after years of research.

I agree that this sentence is wrong, but I would rather say TVs are about picture quality AND having lots of future-proof video inputs.


We'll have to wait and see, but I'd expect Apple to deliver a highly integrated and simple product that drives users into its content at every opportunity. External inputs are a negative for Apple.

How many people have bought these expensive TV sets with an integrated VCR recorder only to discover that DVD was the new king a few years after ?


IMO that's the challenge Apple has to overcome. Historically they sell devices that are replaced every couple of years. Either they can make TVs disposable, or they need to compete in a market where long term support matters, and Apple haven't done well with that in the past. Fortunately a network-based device won't need to be thrown away due to changes in removable media formats.
