Apple announced the New Apple TV yesterday, showcasing Siri, the App Store, and a new remote. All of this was overdue, necessary, rumored, even expected. But the real story is in what comes next.
We’ve always loved the wonderful keyboards from Logitech and also their Harmony series remotes for media players and consoles. Now, the giant peripheral maker is fusing these two categories in a new product and the resulting alloy is what is called the Logitech Harmony Smart Keyboard. It is said to be specifically designed for the Apple TV and “similar living room devices”, but with support for over 225000 devices from 5000+ brands and the ability to work even within closed cabinets, Logitech expects the Harmony Smart Keyboard to be a one-remote solution for all your living room needs.
Waiting for Apple to bring the App Store and iOS games to the Apple TV? Well, it looks that BlueStacks will be first to make this move and bring iPhone and iPad games to your TV screen. The company has added virtualization technology to its upcoming GamePop console, making it possible to run iOS apps on it. Initially, the device was going to run only Android games but there has been a new development and games written for iPhone and iPad will also run on console through a virtualization process called LookingGlass.
