apple seems poised to deliver a home stereo. yes, it isn't at all their market, but many signs aim them to deliver such a product. - they have compared themselves to Sony, the only other computer manufacturer who also builds home audio equipment. - with the iPod and iTunes they have already begun to establish a presence in understanding and delivering a music platform. - with airport and rendevous they have hinted at tying MP3 music across wireless networks. (imagine if with your mac stereo you could tap into your mp3 server). - they already have a great relationship with Harmon Kardon and could easily deliver a stereo speaker package. - the digital hub fits perfectly with the idea of a home stereo and having you iPod, etc. tap right into it. of course, its just a wild guess, but i for one think it would be a great direction for apple.
