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.

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

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.

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

InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
