Five CEOs who should have already been fired

MacDailyNews Take:
No, no, no! Steve Ballmer is doing an excellent job! We like his strategy. We like it a lot.

Apple TV discussion.

Okay, so this has been discussed on this board extensively and everywhere else, but, hey it is still the Apple specific topic that I still probably think about the most.

So, an Apple TV (not the little box) would likely help us get rid of remotes and make out lives easier switching between feeds. If not, I don't think Apple would do it. This would be enough to sell the product as long as it wasn't to high above market.

But, there are various rumors/reports out there that Apple may be having trouble getting the content providers line up. Don't you think that Apple needs just a couple of the majors to buy into the concept and the rest will have to follow?

I think we can assume that Disney is on board:


ESPN Talking To Apple About TV Partnership - Business Insider


Which providers do we think are close to a sure thing and which ones are going to dissent?

Chicken/Egg. Apple, at this point, has no TV eyes to offer. After they launch they'll have more power.

OT

Thanks for sending the info on GM. I feel like Buffet and what does FB produce although I don't think he mentioned FB by name (I am getting old:)). I wouldn't even think of buying FB after the opening bell on Friday. I wish all the stockholders the best of luck and I could be way off base on my thoughts about FB.

So, say they don't have any new content and just have what they have on the current Apple TV. Can they just run the cable, directv, playstation, etc. feeds through in such a way that it is seamless to the user? Essentially, still control the end user experience with whatever the consumer already has but somehow replacing the klunky interfaces of the current content providers?

Just another great post that says what I feel.
Apple is as close to pure synergy as any company on our planet.
Their dreams become our realities.
They give us products that we daydream about.
I have no doubts now about the "Apple TV".
They must deliver a TV that compels us to replace our lovely Sony Bravias etc.
That has always been their modus operandi.

Meanwhile I shudder at the first prices.

Even if they make the Cloud 100%,

Internet would have to be 100% as well.
