Analysts have been claiming that Apple is going to develop an HDTV for years . Basically, ever since the dawn of HDTV and the rise of Apple. Apple, for what it's worth, has made it clear that they'd like to be a fixture in the living room. They introduced the AppleTV for exactly that purpose. And they've sold millions. I've owned all three versions of the AppleTV. And I believe that the changing nature of the AppleTV device - both in what it does, and how it's controlled - provides us with some clues about how Apple intends to proceed in the living room space. And it doesn't point toward Apple developing an HDTV.
