More like a gadget bag, the Apple TV Case was created due to large demand, so it seems that there are many people out there that never leave the house without their little black Apple TV. The Apple TV Case features 4 soft, scratch-free interior pockets that are custom fitted to fit the black Apple TV, as well as the aluminum remote, HDMI cable and the power cord.

Apple Branded HDTV May Get Released Later This Year

Apple is expected to "reinvent" the modern day TV with its own HDTV rumored to be released by the end of 2011. A new claim by Brian White, an analyst at Ticonderoga Securities points out that their research suggests Apple will release a smart HDTV that will incorporate Apple's current $99 priced Apple TV streaming device. A while back, Apple has posted a job opening hinting of a possible upcoming Apple branded HDTV.

Apple LED TV Coming?

Rumors are going around that Apple is working on an actual Apple Television, not to be confused with the Apple TV. Apple posted a new job listing seeking people to work on a next-generation power supply technology. 

Apple states that this job position - "primarily involves high-density offline power supply's development for Apple's next generation Macintosh platforms spanning from notebook computers, desktop computers, servers, standalone displays and TV." Yes that's right, TV! Notice how Apple separated "TV" from "standalone displays". Apple did not even mention their little streaming accessory, the Apple TV. What will be the price point of a large LED TV from Apple is hard to say. Apple's current 27-inch LED Cinema Display is priced at $999.

Apple TV Comes Back in Black for $99!

Steve Jobs does the famous "One more Thing" with the long overdue update to the Apple TV. There were rumours that the new Apple TV would look just like an iPhone except without a screen, but as it turns out it is a fourth of the size of the original and it is black, black plastic. Which is most likely one of the reasons why Apple lowered the cost. Apple's A4 processor now powers the new Apple TV for effortless streaming without any stutters or freezes. 

This update is a drastic change from the previous model, as no content is stored on the device, all of it is downloaded straight from iTunes as rentals. On the back of the new Apple TV, there are inputs for one HDMI cable, power cable (no more power brick as the power supply is now built in), optical audio and ethernet. You can control the Apple TV by the supplied aluminum remote or by the Apple Remote app using your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch via AirPlay. You can get all the fine details here

To give you an idea of how small this box really is, you can fit it on the palm of your hand.

Tiny Apple Touchscreen Leaked!


Another Apple leak! But this time, a tiny touchscreen! Nobody knows what it is or what it could be, but the Taiwanese site Apple.pro just posted up some photos of a tiny touchscreen panel covered in Apple labels. The panel measures 3cm (1.18 inches) square. Apple.pro is the website that leaked the white iPhone 4 enclosure and the Macbook Pro Unibody enclosure, so given it's track record, I'm starting to think that this is a genuine Apple product.

So what could this be? Well there are talks of the next Apple TV remote, new iPod nano or iPod Shuffle and the one that I hope it is, the iWatch!

WWDC Predictions

Tomorrow, Steve Jobs will get up on stage at the keynote of WWDC and announce all the new products from Apple. Even though this year's WWDC has been sort of spoiled by the Gizmodo iPhone leak, it should be interesting to see what he will announce.

1) iPhone 4G/HD: If this doesn't get announced I'll eat my hat! This is almost certain to be announced. With the Gizmodo and vietnam leak this is going to be a sure bet that it will look like this. The main features supposed to be on the new iPhone is a front-facing camera, a higher resolution display, longer battery life, 1Ghz A4 processor, thinner profile and bigger storage.

2) Apple TV: This has goon a while with out an update so WWDC is a prime time for it. This also has had some leaks but this time from engadget. According to their source "think of an iPhone but without a screen." Also their source says that it will have the same internals as a the new iPhone, i.e the 1GHz processor, but only 16Gb of flash storage. However, it supposed to have cloud storage and streaming capabilities. Other features include 1080p output and an impressive price tag of only $99!

3) Mac Pro: Similar to the Apple TV, the Mac Pro has gone almost a year without an update. However this could be because Apple was waiting for the new 6-Core intel processors to put in the flagship model. This would mean that the Mac Pro could have up to 12-Cores! 

 4) Mac Mini: Alike the Apple TV and Mac Pro, the Mac mini has gone a while without an update. Not much to expect, except faster intel core 2 duo chips, more RAM, bigger hard drive and might be a little cheaper.

5) iTunes Music Streaming: Ever since Apple bought the music streaming service, Lala, there has been much speculation about a music streaming service from Apple. And with Apple shutting down the Lala servers on May 31st, WWDC would be the place it would be announced.

Even though there isn't a live video stream of the event, there are many places where you can get live text feeds. Here are some places you can find them.
