Voice assistant Siri, which boasts the latest iPhone 4S, lie seems to be the basis for the interface control the upcoming Apple-TV, connected to the Internet.
There was information that in 2007 Apple leadership knew about the company’s plans to engage in business television. The development team under the close scrutiny of Steve Jobs has long worked on a new interface for TVs. The goals were both simple and ambitious: to prevent users from “awkward and confusing remote control.” And if the developers initially hoped to use the wireless keyboard, iPhone or iPad, the best solution turned out to voice commands virtual assistant Siri.
And it is true: Apple-TV, if they receive Siri-support team to be able to understand natural human language: eg, “Switch to the first,” “add brightness”, “Find football broadcasting”, “Wake me when will my favorite TV series” .
Siri development should be considered more or less held, but the experience of creating thin and flat-panel TVs, Apple is still not enough. It is not excluded, Cupertino friends with Samsung and LG, with the help of expertise which will construct a decent television equipment. Again, should wait period fall in the value of large LCD panels: let some 42-inch TVs are now $ 500, but Apple-new product will include a package of computer and technology, so the final price can be non-competitive.
Apple-TV definitely will be successful: traditionally a nice design, perfect stuffing program, access to an extensive iTunes-content.
