Todays Ridiculous Rumour : Apple TV to Get TV Tuner..

Well it’s been a few months since the last Apple product release and so it’s the perfect time for the rumour mill to start up.  This time it’s 9 to 5 mac and their statement that there “could” be a tv tuner in the next Apple TV.

Unless there’s some play in progress to match iTunes content to live TV programs it seems a sure fire way for Apple to loose revenue.  The whole point of the present incarnation of the Apple TV is another way to watch Apple content on your TV rather than a traditional broadcast method.

What does makes sense would be a built in router,  It really would be the first port of call for Apple into your house.  Connecting devices to the wifi would be a simple tap thanks to iBeacon.  Shows could be streamed from the new Apple TV like a media centre and best of all, zero configuration.

You can see the whole amount of guesswork over at 9to5 mac

This photo comes courtesouy of Case-maker Tactus claiming this iPhone has a Polycarbonate body to help reduce on production costs. His source is apparantly a factory providing parts for Apple.

With two separate buttons for volume control and the inclusion of an LED flash this to me seems more like an iPhone 3gs re imagined.

You have to admire the internet, when there’s nothing to talk about.. just make it up

The problem with this idea is that unless it’s as fast as a swipe or a button it’s pointless.
