A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 161. A lot of rumor and speculation has surrounded what moves Apple might make in the “television” space. Some think Apple will have a full blown Apple TV set and cable like TV service maybe by this time next year. The thing is, Apple has a great TV product now and a lot of people (probably you) have one. I thought it was time to go back an look at the current Apple TV and see how it works and what it can do for us today.

Everyday it seems there is a company or a new Kickstarter project devoted to some device we’ll attach to our body and connect to our smartphone. Accepting the fact that “wearables” the next big thing, does Apple need to get into the “wearables” category? Should it be with an iWatch?
