Siri
I'd favor Siri integration over motion controls. Then again, using a remote to navigate Apple TV really isn't that difficult.

Re: Also ran
I don't see any reason why Apple would want to sell a TV rather than equipment that plugs into the TV. TVs sell for a significant sum but tend not to be replaced very often. People are much more willing to throw $99 or so every few years at some accessory to gain access to new capabilities. The one scenario that might be appealing to the company would be making a TV no one else could connect to without Apple permission...but I doubt consumers would go for that.

Could Apple really create a TV that would distinguish itself from the rest of the field?

Cable companies?
Michael, A big wild card seems to be the cable companies. Ordering stations a la carte would be fabulous, but would gut the Comcast et al business model. If Apple could make a deal with the cable companies or better yet, figure out a way to bypass them (Aereo?) now THAT would be a game changer.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
