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.

Samsung Electronics is what Apple used to be in its beginnings, a hardware selling company. Though Apple still at large sells hardware, it's the services/software/ecosystems (apart form design, naturally) that helps sustain and drive their hardware sales unlike Samsung.

So when Samsung says that Apple cannot compete in TV one has to consider the context, Apples hardware is the luring bait (nice bait actually) to hook and lock you in to iTunes and iOS, where they control everything, which certainly isn't at all bad for them or for the customers that enjoy such spoon fed and controlled experience.

When I go to buy a HDTV I will not, EVER! settle for an offer that would not allow me to connect my AVR/Consoles/what-not with the latest connectors, apple will source panels and other components from Samsung and other big companies so the hardware market for TV's will only be eroded by a customer base that's willing to play along with an overpriced apple experience

nothing to see here
