    Will Apple go beyond just an Apple TV add-on box and do the whole shebang?

    Apple has already brought innovation to music, cell phones and laptops. Is the TV set its next frontier? Rumors have swirled for years that Apple would come out with a TV set, but nothing’s happened yet. VentureBeat’s Dylan Tweney believed there was enough evidence to support an Apple TV set coming out by the 2012 holiday season. Plus, Steve Jobs himself is quoted in the recent Walter Isaacson biography as saying, “I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use. It would be seamlessly synched with all of your devices and … will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.” So if he cracked it, would you buy it?
