You're implying its not even in development (that they started development because of Amazon) - which is ridiculous given product development pipelines.Based on it's not shipping anytime soon, but it was leaked to the press right after the Amazon Fire TV was announced.
Very similar tactic to what Microsoft does in similar situations...
Maybe if you hadn't thrown in the "blindly loyal to Apple" line. As if no one is "blindly loyal" to any other company.Funny, you seem to mock a factual point I made. I bet you have an Apple TV right?
Perhaps you would have preferred if I stated people under the Apple Reality Distortion Field instead?
Why? You think Steve Jobs made the wrong choice? Then why not have the board fire the entire executive team while you're at it. Why just pick on a Cook?I would have Jack Tretton run it, now he's left Sony Playstation.
How exactly did I imply they haven't been doing any product development with tv settop boxes when I've repeatedly mentioned the multiple previous devices they have created? Obviously they've been working on it. But this particular leak is straight-up FUD, to try to get consumers to wait for them to actually develop it.You're implying its not even in development (that they started development because of Amazon) - which is ridiculous given product development pipelines.
I don't doubt it was timed for the release of the Amazon announcement...
Well, it may be a very hard concept for you to grasp, but funnily enough many people are capable of not being brand loyal. Don't know why you can't grasp that?Maybe if you hadn't thrown in the "blindly loyal to Apple" line. As if no one is "blindly loyal" to any other company.
And now because you are not capable of providing a sensible response, you resort to total over reaction. Classy. Shame you didn't read the comment I responded to, then you wouldn't have replied to me thus making no sense at all.Why? You think Steve Jobs made the wrong choice? Then why not have the board fire the entire executive team while you're at it. Why just pick on a Cook?
And I replied:Lol, and who would you have run the company besides the person the Steve hand picked?
You realize Google has already had a set top box out, right? The Google TV (Logitech Revue) came out around the same time as the second gen Apple TV in 2010.Interesting how all these tv products are coming out now. I guess Apple TV was a little ahead of its time.
They didn't copy anyone else's watch. But I do think they were obsessed with releasing something before Apple or Google did so the media could say they beat them to the punch. It's pretty obvious it was rushed to market as less than 6 months later they updated it with completely different software.Anybody who thinks that Samsung copied the Apple watch has pretty low expectations for the Apple watch.
Only if you think the only point of a console is to play Flappy Bird or Angry Birds.....With new AppleTV, Amazon Fire TV and now Google Android TV, consoles will be in grave danger of extinction. It's an awesome news for consumers, except I don't know how I'm going to manage my contents that are spread all over different platforms.
So the fact that they've been trying to market Chrome "for everything" for how many years now only to come out and say, nope, forget all that... it's Android TV now.Suspect based on what? The fact that they are designed for two completely different types of devices?
Nexus 7 came out july 13, 2012 (advertised/announced june 27)iPad Mini looks nothing like the Kindle Fire or Nexus 7. Do you honestly think Apple designed the iPad Mini(1st gen) in just 1 month after the Nexus 7 came out?
