Apple Preps TV Takeover

Apple executives have been meeting with media executives in recent weeks to discuss its vision for the future of television, including an Apple-made TV set that provides shows and movies through wireless streaming. Discussions have included examples of how a user might pause a movie on the television and then resume watching it on his or her iPhone; they have also showed how iPhones and iPads can be used as remotes to control the TV. (Both of these may be possible with Apple’s existing television box, Apple TV.) It sounds as though Siri-like technology may also play a role, as one person from the meetings says the company discussed how voice and gesture-commands might be used to control the new TV.
