AllThingsD reports that “despite speculation about new Apple TV hardware on the way, Apple won’t be unveiling any new boxes next week,” but will release a new software for the second and third generation hockey pucks. That’s, as usual, “according to people familiar with the company’s plans.”
Information from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has revealed that Apple recently imported three shipments of set top boxes from a known Chinese supplier.

According to Digitimes, “rumors are circulating in the market” that Apple is in talks with LG to buy their 55- and 65-inch Ultra HD TV panels for a future Apple TV set. Digitimes sources stated that Apple is still testing the technology and hasn’t reached the agreement with LG yet. The sources claim Apple may also consider Sharp as a potential supplier.
