Is Apple building a TV?

At the risk of turning this blog into an ad campaign for Apple, I pass along the news that Cookie’s boys may be building a television. How they guard secrets like this better than the MI5, I’d love to know.

Nick Bilton of the New York Times has a professional version of this story for you here.

They are planning to ditch the remote control, which, if you have ever tried to turn on a television in a Swiss or English hotel, you’ll be thankful for.

The idea is that they will use Siri – the voice recognition system – as a substitute. In theory, this idea sounds great. In practical terms, I can see myself going insane as my shiny new (English) television fails to recognize words like Steelers, soccer, and Lebowski.
