When Walter Isaacson released his biography on Steve Jobs last fall, we were able to get a few tidbits on Steve Jobs’ vision for the next Apple TV set. It was said that Apple’s late co-founder had “finally cracked” the code to create the television everyone has been waiting for.

Isaacson recently sat down with a Portuguese TV network to talk about his latest biography. As noted by The Next Web, Issacson revealed he left out several details Steve Jobs gave about the company’s next Apple TV…

[Isaacson] says that he left it out of the book “because Apple hadn’t yet done it and I thought that, maybe, that was unfair to Apple before they produce the TV…reporting what Steve thought it should be.

It makes sense that Isaacson would hold back some information to respect Jobs and Apple. The new revolutionary TV out of Apple is rumored to be launching next year, with Siri-like voice control and more integrated options.

Isaacson also revealed in the interview that he plans to write a new book about the history of the ‘entire digital revolution’.

What do you think Apple’s new Apple TV will be? Note, this isn’t about the third-generation $99 Apple TV that’s rumored to be announced tomorrow.


  • I’m holding off on buying a new television set just on the OFF chance that one from Apple gets announced soon. Of course, then I’ll be waiting for the next version that implements the retina display…

      • If I have faith in Apple products because I currently thoroughly enjoy all of the ones I own, how does that make me a lemming? And why would you state your idiocy by getting on a forum just to throw out hate?

        Care to try backing up your name calling?

        Internet morons. Can’t ever escape them…

        Apple just keeps stringing you along.

        iTV released.. Yeah!! Cha Ching- $2000.00

        12 months later

        iTV2 comes out, with a minor upgrade ie. the iPhone 4s, Cha Ching another $2000.00

        It never ends.

      • @lobowill – Hence, I always do my research to see if I think the upgrade is worth it. Maybe you should drop your preconceived notions about people, go get a life, and stop trying to shit on people just because YOU don’t agree with something…

      • What the heck is a lemming?

      • Lemmings are small rodents, usually found in or near the Arctic, in tundra biomes. They are subniveal animals, and together with voles and muskrats, they make up the subfamily Arvicolinae (also known as Microtinae), which forms part of the largest mammal radiation by far, the superfamily Muroidea, which also includes rats, mice, hamsters, and gerbils.

        Lemmings became the subject of a popular misconception that they commit mass suicide when they migrate. Actually, it is not a mass suicide but the result of their migratory behavior. Driven by strong biological urges, some species of lemmings may migrate in large groups when population density becomes too great. Lemmings can swim and may choose to cross a body of water in search of a new habitat. In such cases, many may drown if the body of water is so wide as to stretch their physical capability to the limit. This fact combined with the unexplained fluctuations in the population of Norwegian lemmings gave rise to the misconception.

  • It’s not a Portuguese TV network, but Brazil’s TV Cultura! 😉

    It’ll eventually be projected right out of the phone like a 3D hologram, that’s what I think.

  • It’s a Brazilian TV, not Portuguese.
