Apple Preps TV Takeover

Apple executives have been meeting with media executives in recent weeks to discuss its vision for the future of television, including an Apple-made TV set that provides shows and movies through wireless streaming. Discussions have included examples of how a user might pause a movie on the television and then resume watching it on his or her iPhone; they have also showed how iPhones and iPads can be used as remotes to control the TV. (Both of these may be possible with Appleā€™s existing television box, Apple TV.) It sounds as though Siri-like technology may also play a role, as one person from the meetings says the company discussed how voice and gesture-commands might be used to control the new TV.
