About That Apple TV…

by Da'Von B.

While everyone drools over the “new iPad” (I myself have finally wiped the drool away, as the pre-order was being made) I think some people have missed the idea of what exactly is going on with the new Apple TV. Aside from boasting the 1080p resolution, it’s the new interface that has been substantially overlooked.

With all of the rumors surrounding an actual Apple Television would the design of the UI be a teaser to the interface of the mythical product? The idea was to offer users the ability stream channels as apps on the television and the Apple TV. If that’s the case then by all means this could essentially a sign of what may come if indeed the rumors shape up to be true, remember the UI would be “simple” according to the late Steve Jobs himself;

“I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use…It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud…It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.”

-Steve Jobs
