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".

Is the passive aggressive editorializing really necessary? The replies to your original comment were legitimate points, including questioning the value of having an integrated unit vs a TV attachment (like the AppleTV).

What really funny about Eugenia's post is the fact we've just seen over 800k people tell Netflix to take a hike.

Somehow people like Eugenia seem to miss the the point of stuff like this when they start raving about about junk like Apple TV.
