Here’s an idea for Apple to move Apple TV forward

20131116-181520.jpg< ! While Apple tries to navigate the television and movie business industry, here is an idea that may acts as a Trojan horse. Apple should let PBS develop an app for the Apple TV.

This move would allow Apple to avoid dealing in all the network muck , provide a quality viewing experience , provide a proof of concept for other channels , attract a new demographic and serve the public good by raising hard to find revenue for public television.

Unlike other channels PBS is a station that is required by the FCC to be carried on their systems so cable companies can not threaten to pull them off air. For that matter Apple should also let Cspan be carried as well.

I would be someone who would pay say $5.50 a month to subscribe to a live feed of Public TV.

Is Apple Poised to Change the World Again ?

What will be the Apple’s NeXt Big Thing. Can Apple pull off the most important product introduction of maybe all time? I believe so and here is why!

3D printing technology is at the same point that the personal computer was when the Steve’s were beginning to produce the Apple 2. That little packaging of computing power unleashed a wave of industrial growth not seen since the utilization of the Assembly line at the beginning of The Industrial Revolution. The technology for 3D printing has reached a cost factor approaching a pro consumer level. Like the laser printer introduced by Apple in 1984 the 3D printer would benefit from Apple’s unique ability to simplify and commoditized the product. Apple also uniquely processes the ability to build the subsystems for unifying, developing and distributing software.
Macintosh Pro Computer line (trucks) would find a new life as a leader in industrial design and production.
