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.

[Free of charge socket specifications are not something so special though, considering that to do anything with said socket you still need the expensive DisplayPort spec from VESA (which includes MiniDP specs) anyway...


Actually VESA has the Display port spec available royalty free. HDMI costs 4 cents a port to license. It is still a generation ahead HDMI 1.4 in throughput. I know Toshiba is also using mini display-port on some laptops, so it has caught on a little.
