Rumor: Apple Extending iTunes By Launching Networked HDTV
Jason Calacanis, founder of Mahalo, is apparently the source of a rumor pinning Apple in the midst of developing a networked television. Of the LCD variety, the Apple HDTV would function like an HDTV with an Apple TV, minus the set-top box. Fully networked, the Apple LCD TV is expected to stream content from iTunes wirelessly, either from a PC or Mac and could even be controlled with an iPod Touch or iPhone with the Remote app. Whether this is true or not I'm not sure, but it would be the next logical place for Apple to extend the reach of iTunes. Problem is, if the Apple LCD TV is closed and proprietary, so typical of Apple, and can't access streams of video content outside of iTunes, who's going to buy it? Not me that's for sure.
