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.

product placement alert!

Well they know it works... perhaps better than some other companies:

The computer that Scotty uses to show transparent aluminum was originally going to be an Amiga, but Commodore would only provide a computer if they bought it. Apple was willing to loan them the Mac.

Though the above is probably apocryphal, in the sense that it's more likely Apple paid for product placement - since the studio definitely had Amigas on hand:

Too bad I can't find again one ~indy movie in which BeOS was used by main characters...
