Up next from Apple: Apple TVs

Apple's next move occurred to me while I was walking by my local Apple store: Apple iTV, which will be:     Wall-mountable 37", 42", 50", 60+" LCD screens Look cool, with a hip Apple logo Stream iTunes video and audio content from the web and from your Mac Have special apps on the appstore that run on your TV (sports scores, etc.) Cable card compatible so you won't need a cable box Wirelessly display your MacBook's video feed iPhone-like touch screen remote control Include a browser controllable by above remote control's keyboard Built-in DVR So a very cool looking TV that is plug-and-play capable of showing video rentals and playing music. This will do to Sharp/Sony/Samsung/Comcast what the iPhone did to the Blackberry and AT&T: cost more, eviscerate the market, and bypass the network operator. Sweeeet.
