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.

No input for your Xbox. No input for your Wii. No input for your Blueray player. No input for your Grandpa's Betamax. No input for ANYTHING. Not even a coax cable from your old rooftop antenna will get in there.

Don't people get it? We're talking a giant iPad hanging on the wall (there's a drinking song in there somewhere). Everything you want to see and do streams from iTunes. Including games. The interface is Siri. And once you've subscribed to a service, you'll be able to see it on your iPad too. Maybe even on your iPhone.

They might keep on using the term "TV" for familiarity's sake. But it won't be TV as we've known it.

No, I have no insider knowledge, I'm extrapolating from how I've seen Apple evolve over the last decade. You don't have to like it. But they will sell millions of the things.

With something as crappy as that it would be a pretty big fail product.

Really? That's what everyone said about the iPad too... and the things are still flying off the shelves, despite the fact that they're nothing more than giant iPod Touches. Don't underestimate the shiny factor when it comes to your average consumer sheep.
