Here is Daring Fireball’s John Gruber’s take on yesterday’s speculations on whether Apple is working on a standalone TV set or not:
As Apple TV users, we are always excited to hear rumours on Apple’s own television set. The latest one is the open letter which Carl Icahn sent today to Apple, where he predicts the company to release an Ultra HDTV next year. However, The Wall Street Journal confirmed hours later that Apple has no plans to enter the television market anytime soon.
Apple TV users often find themselves switching between the Apple TV remote and the televion remote. Changing the volume and source on the television requires the TV remote while the normal navigation of content of course requires the silver Apple TV remote. For media buffs, this turns out to be much annoying and we have always longed for a solution. Sideclick aims to be one.
