“Ever since Steve Jobs gave us a sneak peak at Apple’s internal iTV project at 2006’s ‘Showtime’event, we’ve been waiting for Apple’s pioneering set-top box to mature,” Michael Simon writes for Macworld. “Officially released just moments before the iPhone, Apple TV was designed to be the magical gadget that bridged the gap between the small screens on our mobile devices and the giant ones in our living rooms, wirelessly delivering our music, movies and photos to a place where they could look and sound their best.”
“At the time, Jobs triumphantly declared that the square box ‘completes the story’ that started with the iPod,” Simon writes. “But we know now the story didn’t end there: With the dawn of the iPhone, iPad and now Apple Watch, our digital lives have become far greater than the things that entertain us. But the box that sits under our TVs hasn’t really evolved with it.”
Simon writes, “For most of us, Apple TV is little more than the ‘hobby’ Apple has positioned it to be—a fun way to stream media and games without the hassle of wires or extra components—but it could very well be on its way to becoming the command center for our homes.”
