And we have many signs that Cupertino wants to make it happen. Another step, which has been reported by the Wall Street Journal, is that Apple has met with the main television media to explain its vision of the future of the medium.
In these meetings, Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president, explained how the television could be integrated with the phones and tablets to recognize the users or how we could interact with the television using our voice or even our movements . The content we could watch would be moved from the TV to the iPhone or iPad instantly using an enhanced version of AirPlay and storing the data of what we are watching using iCloud.
The bad news is that Apple itself has recognized that getting something like this can take much longer than it did with other revolutionary products such as the iPhone or iPad. Of course, the company has not talked at all about licenses or agreements at the moment with a TV that so far remains a very vague rumor and with very little data about its specifications.
Of course, entering the television market is going to be difficult. Jobs himself said at the time that the profit margin in that company will be weaker than in other markets because of its very high competition, competition that will not be easy to unseat knowing giants like Netflix.
