There is a new book coming out — Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs doesn’t goes on sale until Monday, “Steve Jobs Bio”: Its 6 Most Surprising Reveals
But the big one didn’t make the list … Steve Jobs Said He ‘Finally Cracked’ How To Make A Great Television. Will Apple actually follow through, who knows.
Steve Jobs told his biographer Walter Isaacson that he figured out how to make a better television set, according to a leaked excerpt in the Washington Post:
“He very much wanted to do for television sets what he had done for computers, music players, and phones: make them simple and elegant,” Isaacson wrote.
Isaacson continued: “‘I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use,’ he told me. ‘It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.’ No longer would users have to fiddle with complex remotes for DVD players and cable channels. ‘It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.’”
The Apple TV set has been rumored for over a year now. We think Apple would shake up the TV industry just like it shook up the phone industry with the iPhone, and the portable computing market with the iPad.
Dream big …
