    On your conversation re the rumored Apple Television, I like your idea about a circuit board that Apple might sell to manufacturers, but I have to say that television manufacturers are part of the problem. Tivo has done well largely because they are better at remote control development than the TV manufacturers and the software side of accessing recorded and broadcast television programing.

    Have you seen the new Bose TV. It has an absolutely awesome remote system and sound system. Their pricing is 3 or 4 times what you might pay for a similar quality tv without the enhanced audio. They are a very niche player and Apple probably wouldn’t want to be in the game at that level, but what they have done for ease of use suggests to me what Apple could do for the control function. Its the only one advance that I’ve seen on that side. Apple with Siri and it’s ability to make things simple could make use of a TV/AV system great.

    Just a thought.
