"Apple (AAPL) is in the "early stage of testing" its own television set, according to a report.
Is Apple developing a TV?The Cupertino, Calif. company is working with component makers in Asia on its TV-set designs, according to a Wall Street Journal report.
"It isn't a formal project yet. It is still in the early stage of testing," said a person familiar with the matter, according to the report.
Foxconn, an Asian company that assembles iPhones and iPads, and Sharp have been working together on a design for an Apple TV set, according to two sources, the Journal reported.
There has been speculation about an Apple TV-set for some time. However, the tech giant has yet to confirm such a project is in the works. In a recent interview with NBC's Brian Williams, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the TV was something the company had strong interest in.
"It's a market that we have intense interest in, and it's a market that we see that has been left behind," Cook said.
The company now sells Apple TV, a black box for $99 that allows users to access Apple's iTunes store and services such as (NFLX) and Hulu on their TVs. The speculation is that Apple wants to go a step further and reinvent the entire TV viewing experience."
An OLD story doofas, and beyond that, Apple is SO secretive that we have no way of knowing whether APPLE TV's will reveal "ENTROPIC INSIDE" when finally unveiled. Even if they're using BRCM's chips, it's still the same "Buggy Whip". In other words - you're an imbecile, like the man said....
