Apple The next frontier for Apple - and other technology companies - to conquer: the television market. Terry Gou, chairman of Foxconn, has confirmed his company will be building a television for Apple in conjunction with Sharp. Since I bought a brand-new top-of-the-line TV late last year, I've been thinking a lot about what could be improved about the state of TV today, and as crazy as it seems, I'm actually not that dissatisfied.

Apple TV will not have legacy connectors like HDMI.


Errr.... Seeing as the current Mac Mini model ships with HDMI and Thunderbolt, and an HDMI to DVI converter, something tells me you are incorrect. In fact, my Mac Mini is connected to my monitor using HDMI, along with the XBox 360. Couple of cables and a cheap HDMI switcher, fully switchable set-up. Cables and switcher all together cost less than £25. I could have found a cheaper switcher, but this one I have is tiny and happened to be on the shelf at the store when I was looking for the cabling. I also have a thunderbolt to VGA for an older monitor, but HDMI is just a better picture.
