Web browsing and Last.fm coming to new Apple TV via hack

Posted in Apple TV by Conner Flynn on November 18th, 2010

The new Apple TV is pretty disappointing since it is so limited. It sits collecting dust like many Wiis do. So if Apple doesn’t decide to release Apps for it in the near future, jailbreakers certainly will. In fact, some hackers have managed to get a web browser running on the new Apple TV and also added Last.fm integration.

The latest apps were created by the folks over at Firecore, and they will be releasing a package for Apple TV called aTV Flash. A beta of the package should be released within the next couple of weeks.

New Apple TV gets torn apart

Posted in Apple TV by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2010

The newly shipping Apple TV has just undergone it’s first autopsy from iFixit, revealing the device’s hidden specs and innards. It looks like the inside of Apple TV has a lot in common with other iOS devices, including the iPhone and iPad.

There’s 8 GB of NAND flash memory on board, 256 MB of RAM (the same as iPad), the same Apple A4 processor as the iPad and iPhone, and the same Broadcom chip for Bluetooth, FM, and WiFi b/g/n capabilities. And some solder pads near the side of the logic board look like a perfect fit for an Apple dock connector.

Apple HDTV with built-in Apple TV?Many fanboys and girls are waiting for Apple’s next Macbook coming Tuesday. But check this out. In an interview with CNET UK, Jason Calacanis claims to have sources that say that Apple is working on a networked LCD HDTV with built-in Apple TV. So why jump into the HDTV market? I have no idea, but the promise of an HDTV capable of streaming music and videos from your network is interesting. The idea is that they’ll function like a standard TV with an Apple TV box, just without the box.

YouTube on Apple TV

Posted in Apple TV,News,YouTube by Chetz on June 1st, 2007

YouTube videos showing on Apple TVThe immense popularity of YouTube and the rapidly eroding audience of network television could only mean that one day someone out there would think of bringing it into our homes and not through our computers. I am of course referring to Apple’s announcement to bring YouTube direct through its Apple TV streaming service, the next greatest thing from the mind of Steve Jobs (barring the release of the iPhone of course.)

Ironically enough Apple will debut the YouTube service in mid-June, right about when the iPhone hits the masses. Apple …

The Apple TV is a device that will connect directly to a television and allow the viewing of iTunes content streamed from a PC or Mac, such as movies, photos, TV shows, and music.

Apple Stock Up After Announcement of iPhone and Apple TV

Posted in Apple,Apple TV,iPhone,Mobile Phones,News by Chris Weber on January 9th, 2007

apple-computer-logo-stock-up.jpgThe announcement of the iPhone and the Apple TV drove Apple’s share price up over $7 today to close at $92.57. This price was close to a 50 week high for the computer maker turned consumer electronics juggernaut.

That transformation has some investors wondering if the traditional computer manufacturer can handle the transformation of its business model from selling computer hardware and software to selling ultra trendy and ultra popular consumer electronics.

Palm, Research In Motion Ltd. (Blackberry maker) and Motorola shares were all down on the news of Apples entrance into the somewhat crowded …

Jobs Unveils Apple TV Today at MacWorld in San FranciscoToday at MacWorld in San Francisco Steve Jobs unveiled the highly anticipated Apple TV, dubbing it the iTV multiple times during his keynote speech.

Is Apple releasing an HDTV this year?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on April 13th, 2011

According to a report, Apple could launch an Internet-connected high-definition television set by the end of 2011, expanding into the $100 billion LCD TV market. Analyst Brian White with Ticonderoga Securities said in a note to investors that he picked up “data points” that point toward a “Smart TV” launch by Apple, possibly as soon as by the end of this year.

If Apple does want into this market, (which seems inevitable) will an Apple HDTV take the world by storm like their other products? Maybe. It could be paired with a subscription service to iTunes, allowing users to access content and services at a flat subscription rate so that a cable box and digital video recorder will no longer be needed. That would make a lot of folks happy.

Apple licenses tech from TV guide maker Rovi

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on September 20th, 2010

Apple never rests and as proof, an SEC filing today revealed that it has struck a “multi-year agreement” with Rovi in what may be a strategy to support the new Apple TV. The terms are secret, but will let Apple license Rovi’s technology over the course of the deal. Neither company has commented yet.

It’s hard to say what Apple would use the tech for. The company makes interactive program guide material that taps into TV channel lineups. It also makes software for set-top boxes to access and share media stored both on the Internet and the local network. So Apple TV is a good guess.

Apple in talks to cut TV show prices for iPad

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on February 11th, 2010

Sure, the iPad was a bit disappointing to many who waited so long to see the device finally revealed. Yeah the name of the gadget sounds like something a geeky girl might need once a month or so, but Apple is expecting to sell gobs of the thing.

Apple also apparently thinks that many of the users who buy will be using the iPad for watching TV and video. The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple is in negotiations with TV studios to reduce the price of TV show episodes for the iPad that is shipping soon.
