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.

Oh great, another product that costs twice as much to buy then it costs to make. Something that's closed tighter then a dolphins butt, support for the bare minimum codecs that are needed for iTunes. Most likely missing any ability to add other devices like a DVD player or game console. Yea I'll pass, thank you. Even if Apple comes out with a retina display TV with the
Guts of an iPad I'm finished supporting the monopoly that is Apple.

I'll bet a hundred bucks that the fan boys will say that other company's stole the idea of the TV from Apple and they'll probably sue Samsung. Why, just because.

Yes I'm being silly and I don't believe what I am writing. However I am done with Apple. They are becoming the Microsoft of the 90's and that just doesn't sit well with me.

Feel good about yourself now? Yeah! You just bashed Apple and derided them on the web! Yeah! You rock! Yeah!

You probably are one of the same 'tards that called an iPad, "just a big iPod touch" not realizing that you were actually paying Apple a compliment. Not realizing that you were witnessing a watershed moment in computing, that still to this day, this very moment, no competitor has yet to trump.

When the iPod arrived, it was poo pooed. Same for the iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Air. Funny how now everything looks just like them huh?

How about we stop, and take a wait and see attitude? How about we wait to see what happens and then we comment huh? How about we wait for the product to ship, let alone be announced, before you put your uninformed ignorance on display? Maybe, just maybe then the world will have a few less blathering idiots in it.

Your fanboyism is as annoying his anti-Apple attitude.
