At the Time Warner annual investor meeting, Richard Plepler, the CEO of HBO, announced that the company will launch a standalone HBO streaming service in 2015, enabling HBO fans to finally cut the cord. And according to analysts, this might be the break the set-top box industry, especially the Apple TV, has been waiting for.
Apple is planning to get the most out of their 3 billion Beats acquisition by making its streaming service available to as many as possible. With the 7.0 software update, they’ve added a brand new Beats Music channel to Apple TV, which corresponds to the app of the same name on iOS.
From NSA backdoors and fingerprint leaks, to being the Illuminati and Alien allies (yeah, just Google it!), Apple has been accused of conspiracies of all kinds. And with the release of the new Apple Watch, this post appeared on CannyVision, which looks really crazy at first, but when you think about it, well… it’s still a bit crazy, but surely possible.
Along with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple announced an entire new product line up today morning. Like many had speculated, its a watch; not called the iWatch though, its the Apple Watch (learn morn about Apple Watch). And among the hundreds of features Apple boasted to be stuffed into this tiny metal square, the Apple TV also made its mark.
Judging from the reports so far, Apple is planning a huge keynote for this Tuesday. They’ve chosen to build a tall new building for the event (in front of the Flint Center), as opposed to the usual Yerba Buena Center and its Town Hall Theatre. Also it is worth remembering what Eddy Cue commented on this year’s releases, “the best product pipeline I’ve seen in 25 years.” Though we can never be sure, it is expected that Apple will release two new models of iPhone and an iWatch at the event, along with iOS 8 HomeKit and HealthKit.
