“In an investor note released late Tuesday, analyst Gene Munster returned to his mantra of an Apple television set,” Lance Whitney reports for CNET. “”
“The analyst has been forecasting such a product for the past few years, but so far Apple has yet to produce one,” Whitney reports. “‘Given how many times we have predicted a television and have yet to see one launch, it may be easy to dismiss our insistence of the television,’ Munster said. “‘However, as recently as 9/12 on Charlie Rose, CEO Tim Cook said that the TV is a category in which Apple has great interest in, given the experience is ‘stuck in the 70s.’ Cook also noted that Apple has ‘taken a stab’ at TV with Apple TV and claimed that it is an area Apple continues to look at. We also note that in Steve Jobs’ biography in 2011, Jobs stated that he felt he finally cracked the TV. We believe the evidence remains that something is there, the question remains when.'”
Whitney reports, “‘It would seem that an Apple television is unlikely in 2015 and quite possible in 2016,’ Munster said.”
