Could this be a push that Microsoft needs to get some focus back on to Media Center? CE Pro are reporting that Apple may be releasing a connected TV that includes a DVR, home media functions and syncing with iPods.
"The device would push Apple further into the digital living room with interactive TV, music, movie, and gaming features," Jaffray says. "Such a device would command a premium among a competitive field of budget TVs."
The Apple TV hasn’t really taken off but maybe with a connected home push from Apple they could succeed and that could make Microsoft look again at Media Center
