It's definitely going to be better than a regular TV. It was the dream of Steve Jobs to have a TV like no other and he's been working on it for many years. It's all rumor right now, but apparently it will work with Siri so you just tell it what to do whether than use a remote control. Sign me up.

I want one. For awhile I took an older big iMac and used it as a TV. It was nice to be able to watch internet stuff as well and I couldn't figure out why they don't make TVs like it. Course, they don't like people being able to just watch stuff on the internet on their TVs, so sites like Hulu and CBS will figure out how to ban the browser of the TVs from seeing stuff... then a hacker will create a new browser we will all have to buy LOL

Seriously, you need Siri to change your channel now? Man, Americans are lazy.

It has nothing to do with laziness. My living room is too big for my remote. It doesn't always work. And I'll be damn if I'm getting up. Okay, maybe it does have a little something to do with laziness.

All I am going to say is they need to fine tune Siri's hearing before they use her as a remote

I remember when the remotes were corded... and they "clicked"...

Wait. I'm too young to remember those. Nevermind.

I heard about it on the radio. It's a remote control that fits like a ring on your finger that goes with the iTV. Whoever thought of this is a genius. I've heard of women who have had sooooo much troubles getting their husband to wear a wedding ring, so how better to get these reluctant men to wear one than to make it into a remote control for the tv!!!
