“Analyst Gene Munster said Apple didn’t release a TV set this year because it couldn’t get a television screen it was happy with,” Jay Yarow reports for Business Insider.

“Speaking at our IGNITION conference this year, Munster said he spoke with sources in the Asian supply chain about Apple’s television plans,” Yarow reports. “hose sources said that Apple had requested a specific type of screen for a TV, an indium gallium zinc oxide or IGZO screen. Manufacturers were having trouble making that screen for a big-screen TV.”

“If Apple does release an all-in-one television, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster thinks it comes out in November of 2013,” Yarow reports in yet another separate article about Munster’s comments on Business Insider. “Munster’s revised thinking on the Apple TV release was buried in a note on his product roadmap for Apple in 2013.”

Here’s how Munster sees Apple’s 2013 playing out:
• March 2013: iPad Mini with Retina display
• June 2013: iOS 7 and OSX previews and MacBook Airs with Retina display
• September 2013: iPhone 5S, totally new iPad
• November 2013: Apple television in sizes from 42″-55″, priced at $1,500-$2,000.

MacDailyNews Take: We’re still waiting for Gene’s Apple TV with DVR capability to arrive*. It’ll be four years this February.

*We’re not really waiting. We never expected or wanted such a thing. Just making a point. We’d also like to take this opportunity to get the jump on Gene and predict that the sun will exhaust its hydrogen supply, evolve into a red giant, and envelope our beloved earth; consuming the planet in its entirety. We will make this prediction each year via automation for the next 5 or so billion years, until we are correct, at which time humans will no longer exist, having evolved eons prior into light-based beings who have no need for DVRs, TVs, or AAPL analysts who dabble in prognostication with extremely portable goal posts.
