Steve Jobs’ biography again comes out in an excerpt. The biography is being released on October 24, Monday including online.
According to the excerpt of that biography, Steve Jobs revealed his plans of Apple Television Sets to Walter Isaacson. It seems Apple is soon launching their own “Apple-Branded” Television sets by 2012.
But most amazingly, the excerpt reveals that Steve Jobs had cracked the code to build an HDTV.
The excerpt was published by The Washington Post. It also suggests that Apple is developing a solution to the idea that the current situation of TV sets is all fragmented by the cable operators who controls everything.
According to the biography,
“He very much wanted to do for television sets what he had done for computers, music players, and phones: make them simple and elegant,” Isaacson wrote.
Isaacson continued: “‘I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use,’ he told me. ‘It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.’ No longer would users have to fiddle with complex remotes for DVD players and cable channels. ‘It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.’”
Through many years, Apple has been trying to get into TV. One of the research tells us that Apple by 2012 will launch three HDTV models, one of which is “Smart TV”.
With this, the viewers can do more than just watching the cable television. It will be an iOS based tevevision set in which we could run apps, play iOS games, share the things that we’re doing on the TV and suft the internet too. Also, we’ll be expecting those TV sets with an integration of iCloud.
There are much more visions of Steve Jobs to come out. More than an integrated HDTV. So, would you be buying an integrated Apple-branded TV?
