Tim Cook was interviewed this week by NBC Rock Center and had some interesting things to say. H announced that some Mac manufacturing would be moving back to the US but the most interesting comment came when he was asked about Apple TV, a product Apple has said in the past they consider a “hobby”.
Tim Cook said:
“When I go into my living room and turn on the TV, I feel like I have gone backwards in time by 20 to 30 years, It’s an area of intense interest. I can’t say more than that.”
Pundits have been predicting the launch of an Apple TV set for years and of course Apple has already sold millions of little black boxes. The question is will Apple go all out on a TV? Or will they launch a standalone companion product? They could of course allow apps to be run on the existing Apple TV boxes as they already run a version of iOS. 2013 looks like it’ll be an interesting year
