Sadly, most Apple fanboys *will* pay $1500 for a $500 TV, and then they'll buy the worthless $500 "extended warranty" on top of it. They could have gotten a superior combination with the standalone TV and a Roku XS, but that's not what Best Buy will push.
Couldn't have said it better myself. XMBC, Windows media center or even boxee are cheaper alternatives but yeah like you said Best Buy wont push those.
RTietjens hit the nail on the head with that comment. Doesn't Samsung already have this tv(but better)??? I think theirs basically has all of this except the camera.
Now you're just mashing it!
people will buy it and embrace it. apple will win again and again because of the "complete user experience" that they have created from day one. I hate to admit it, but they know how to get the lemmings to give them money and pay a premium for it. for these people, there is huge value in it... buy apple stock people and then use the profits to buy/support open source projects.
Hmm interesting to see whether this will just be an LG TV with Apples touch and logo or something truly unique, I think it's going to end up being a "smart tv" with apples more polished iOS distribution found in its set top boxes which is a step up from other competitors integrated interfaces or operating systems if you could even call them that but with a couple perks like the integrated Facetime webcam and mic, all in all it should be a decent set but priced high as is done with all Apple products.
Piano Black finish on it, or Anodized Aluminum for the chasis, what do yall think?
I think its inevitable that after this TV comes out apple will again be the first company to create the technology.
Well, It's not an official, official confirmation but anything coming from Best Buy is close. I am interested to see what Apple can do with a TV (involving LG's panels of course). As I said before in other threads, I think the main strengths of the TV will be the color accuracy and the high quality of the panel itself rather then the interface. Don't get me wrong, the interface is sure to be essential but Apple's monitors strength has always been the color accuracy and the high quality; sure, Apple may have the interface but what will truly draw everybody over is Apple's attention to detail when it comes to modifying their panels to their own design, I mean just look at the Cinema Display.
Still, I'm waiting until something comes from Apple. Don't get me wrong, we are getting close but I've heard so much about the Apple TV coming soon that I'm just tired of it.
