Apple’s Latest Set Top Plans: It’s Not What You Think

I have been writing about Apple's fabled "iTV" for over two years now. Initially, it was just a major upgrade to Apple TV. Eventually, it morphed into a full-blown TV set.

Now we've settled on the middle ground of a cable-box-replacing set-top box. Let me promise you. This will not happen, and here's why:

Cable companies hold a trump card and it's called decoding. You cable box is programmed to decode or unscramble the channels you subscribe to. In order for any other third-company box like, say, a TiVo DVR, to do the same, it needs what's called a cable card. Cable companies and consumers have shown little interest in these cards keep up with the newest technologies and contemplate about how these will be used in the future। On this blog I'll share my thoughts about the future of technology, based on the high Tech Road Show Blog inventions of today.
