Steve Jobs has unveiled a new iPod every year since 2005 -- giving the stock a nice boost
Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster freely admits that doesn't really know what Steve Jobs has up his sleeve for the special event Apple (AAPL) has scheduled for Sept. 1. But that doesn't stop Munster from speculating -- both about what products and services might be unveiled, and what their unveiling MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 25, 2010 1:11 PM ET
Rather than a "best of TV" subscription service, Apple will be streaming programs a la carte
[UPDATE: The event is actually scheduled for Sept. 1. See here.]
Fuzzy rumors about Steve Jobs' next move in the TV market have been swirling for the better part of a year, but the picture snapped into focus on Tuesday.
A report by Peter Burrows, a veteran BusinessWeek reporter now writing for Bloomberg Businessweek, lays out the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 24, 2010 6:28 PM ET
Will Apple TV's successor, rumored for Sept. release, really destroy cable and satellite?
Kevin Rose, co-founder of Digg, made two bold predictions Saturday about the rumored update to what Steve Jobs calls his "hobby" -- an Apple-branded gateway to the vast wasteland of American television. The product Engadget has been calling iTV, according to Rose, 1) is coming in September and 2) will "change everything."
Never mind that Rose, who claims to MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 22, 2010 7:01 AM ET
The hurdles Steve Jobs cited last month could be easily solved, says an analyst
In a report to clients issued Friday morning, Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster makes the case that Apple (AAPL) is well positioned to do for the vast wasteland of television what the iPhone did for cellular telephony -- and may in fact be preparing a stand-alone, Internet-connected TV for release within the next two to four years.
If his MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 2, 2010 6:42 AM ET
One chipmaker rules the mobile device arena; the other dominates personal computers. Both have ambitious goals for expansion, and that means butting heads is inevitable
By Seth Weintraub and JP Mangalindan
As Intel's power-hungry chips grow more efficient and ARM CPU designs make strides in performance, the two chipmakers find themselves facing off for market share in a familial safe ground that's become a veritable hot zone brimming with untapped potential and MOREJun 8, 2010 2:07 PM ET
The pressure is on Apple's CEO to surprise and amaze the tech world on Monday
"You won't be disappointed," wrote Steve Jobs a few weeks ago in one of his cryptic -- and increasingly frequent -- e-mail pronouncements.
This one was in response to a fan concerned that Apple's (AAPL) Worldwide Developers Conference, which Jobs will kick off with a keynote address, had been upstaged by Google's (GOOG) I/O conference a few MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 5, 2010 5:23 PM ET
There might just be a market for a $99 iPhone (without the phone bill) that plugs into your TV
I tried to live with Apple TV for a couple months last year, but our relationship never quite clicked.
Maybe it was my fault. Other people seem to like the thing (although it has all-but disappeared since then from Apple's online store).
In any event, I found the movie and TV selection limited, MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 28, 2010 2:27 PM ET
Consumers don't want the web on TV – they want a better TV experience
As you might have seen last week, my Techmate sparring partner Michael and I got into it a bit about Google TV. He liked the idea, I didn't.
I still don't.
At the time when we shot our video segment on the subject (see below), I had heard rumors about the announcement, and the details weren't yet clear – MOREJon Fortt - May 24, 2010 2:10 PM ET
CBS and Disney may join Apple's $30 per month TV service, says the Wall St. Journal
This could be totally disruptive. Or it could be another "hobby" like Apple TV that never quite takes off.
In a front-page story published Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that CBS (CBS) and Disney (DIS) are "considering participating" in Apple's (AAPL) plan to offer television subscriptions over the Internet.
It was the first hint of interest MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 22, 2009 8:21 AM ET
Despite a hasty fix to repair the last update, reports of problems continue to pour in
Only hours after Apple (AAPL) released version 3.0 of the software that runs its Apple TV set-top box, complaints began appearing on its online discussion boards -- the company's own early warning system for detecting major bugs.
By Saturday, Nov. 7, when Apple advised owners by e-mail to immediately update to version 3.01, the discussion topic MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 8, 2009 6:50 AM ET
