Is that essentially what this rumored 2013 Apple TV thing is going to be? I'm also curious if it will be able to be used as a stand alone device or need a smaller iOS device to control it or sync with.. I would hate to have to talk to it all the time... I've been wanting a giant touchscreen with a simple stand alone OS (like iOS) for a very long time.. like an iPad that's bigger than me. So I can hang it on the wall, stand in front of it and have access to a life size calendar, stock quote etc.. I've been wanting something like this for as long as I can remember. I have a feeling the TV thing won't be anything close to what I just described though..
