Apple Should Sell The ‘World’s First Non-TV TV’, Says Analyst

There is being an amused from quite some time now that Apple is putting up efforts to enter the TV business, but what according to one analyst name James McQuivey, Apple has to think outside the box and begin working on and manufacturing the “world’s first non-TV TV”.

ZDNet reports – via James McQuivey blog – that the “TV business is a tough nut to crack” because the “content is still controlled by monopolists unlikely to give Apple the keys to their content archives.”

“Apple should sell the world’s first non-TV TV,” writes McQuivey. “Instead of selling a replacement for the TV you just bought, Apple should convince millions of Apple fans that they need a new screen in their lives. Call it the iHub, a 32-inch screen with touch, gesture, voice, and iPad control that can be hung on the wall wherever the family congregates for planning, talking, or eating – in more and more US homes, that room is the dining room or eat-in kitchen.”

“By pushing developers to create apps that serve as the hub of family life – complete with shared calendars, photo and video viewers, and FaceTime for chatting with grandma – this non-TV TV could take off, ultimately positioning Apple to replace your 60-inch set once it’s ready to retire.”
