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".

I guess the price points for "fancy" remotes have dropped considerably since the last time I was in the market. And doing a quick google showed me that in fact the lower-end Logitech Harmony remotes are available in the $25-50 price range. The big advantage of the Logitechs in my opinion is that you program them through your computer by downloading the specs (though I must say their client app is sucky). I think it's worth paying a little extra for.
