back to article Apple to bring YouView approach to Apple TV

The Wall Street Journal continues to fly a kite - to use an old journalistic expression - for the Apple TV, following up a story on the set-top box's possible integration of cable and digital TV decoders with a second piece, this time suggesting Apple will turn the product into a kind of YouView for the US.

Yet another fluff piece on the vapourware of Apple TV.

We don't even know for sure if it will be a TV or a new STB that will comeout.....

How about not posting so many stories on this and giving Apple free PR until we know something is actually on the way.

How about not implying that the AppleTV is about to get YouView, when it is actually nothing of the sort.

Please no.

Mine's the one with the one-way ticket to any planet other than this one.

Prior art

Hopefully apple will incorporate this, and then Sugar and the rest of the Youview crowd, along with beardy Branson and his Tivo mates will sue the arse of Apple for doing what they have already done.

although Apple will probably manage to patent it, and sue them for timetravellig in to the future, stealing Apple's idea and then going back to the past to incorporate said ideas.

so....

It'll be overpriced, overbudget and beset by endless delays?

Talktalk are offering youview boxes "free" on 2 year contract. From what I've seen of the reviews I'd pay them _not_ to supply one.

Don't be so sarcastic! Really!

Everyone knows that yes it will be a revolution. Heck, if Apple brought out their own range of 4-inch plastic soil pipes, as long as they had the Apple logo embossed into the shiny grey PVC, fanbois would be queuing-up for the chance to flush a log through said pipe work - for the simple reason that the Apple plumbing will be a revolution in and of itself because of who it's made by!

Please stop your sarcasm and take Apple seriously for once will you - it's really not fair of you!

Re: so....

You must have read a fairly narrow pool of reviews, it's got rave write-ups anywhere the reviewer is capable of thinking for themselves rather than follow the tech industry herd-think.
