    That looks like Apple is going to announce a new generation of apps for the Apple TV, that we can see a bit as the background of their “the epicentre of change” slogan, and the round shapes signify that the new box will be round-shaped. (OK, maybe I am a TAD imaginative).

  • eshkin

    i see Apple TV in that logo.. 😉

  • Yeah that is too obvious. Maybe there’s more! I see…an Apple Watch delivered before WWDC!

    I would actually prefer an actual TV versus a set top box this time around. I have all my entertainment (tv) components as hidden in the basement all that is visible is the TV. Siri on the Apple TV would be useless to me now.

  • I think Siri on the Apple TV would be quite a mistake. Too far to ensure good pick up of your voice, too many factors leading to problems. But, Siri on your wrist, controlling Apple TV, now there’s something. Enter Apple Watch 🙂 It’s your Siri pickup wherever you are in your house.

    I don’t think they will go full TV. Apple likes to have their customers change their products every year or two, and TV are something we change every 8-12 years for most… Meaning they would have to sell the TV for about 3-5 thousand dollars, making it expensive for most people. They would also have to compete with current behemoths of TV such as Sharp, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony,etc… I think the fair thing for them to do is to release a new Apple TV box that you connect to your current TV and make a complete overhaul of the UI with apps, nice remotes, etc…

    This is what I think the Apple TV should be :

    Price point : 199$, 299$ and 399$ with, let’s just say, 64,128 and 256 GB hard drive.

    You can use your Apple Watch, iPad or iPhone to control the Apple TV, but you can also buy remote and game controllers (59$).

    The new Apple TV UI let’s you download apps, games, and much more. Enabling games to be downaloded and installed would be game-changer for Nintendo and even more soft-core gamers of XBOX and PlayStation. Price would be much lower (10-20$), and you would have a complete game like RPG, puzzles, strategy,etc… We’ve already seen what devs can do with an iPhone, they could do much more with an Apple TV.

    Another game-changer would be streaming contents as we already have HBO Now (US only -.-), and they could partner with many stations to have broadcasting rights.

    For us, we open up the TV, can see our homescreen with weather, reminders, calendar, tv show programming,etc.. We just open up a game, play a bit, or stream some music, then watch a movie on Netflix asking Siri’s recommendation. You see the deal.

    Exactly, Siri not directly on the box but on the remote, game controller, iPhone or Watch.

    I see iPhone and Apple Watch apps … The dark ones on top is just for readability of the type
