New Apple Television?

"While Apple's commitment to the living room remains a 'hobby,' we continue to believe the company will enter the TV market with a full focus, as an all-in-one Apple television could move the needle when connected TVs proliferate," Munster says, noting that Apple may use its recent $3.9 billion in component investments to develop large screen displays - specifically, Internet-connected Apple television sets of at least 50 inches.

Internet TV Land Rush

One of the interesting things to do in a land rush is to figure out whose land is getting taken. We've watched eBay, Google, and Craigslist eating Newsprint's lunch. We've watched Apple eat Sony's lunch, and now it's going after the Recording Industry, HollywoodAand the TV Networks. Simultaneously.

Sure, there are a few exceptions. The Simpsons. Thirty Rock. The Office. But even the good stuff is forced to be somewhat retarded by the strictures of the network system.AEver seen the original Office, the one made in England? Way better than the one on NBC. Let's face it. Network TV blows. The system blows. The business model blows. The consumer experience blows. But worst of all the content blows. What's more, the system is set up in such a way that it pretty much requires the content to blow.

Food Revolution Fail

You’ve never seen a school lunch like this one, made with hydroponic vegetables and free-range chicken by a brash British superchef. Not that the elementary schoolchildren care. Most sing-song "Pizza!" when given a choice between the gourmet grub and the reheated factory-made frozen pizza. At the end of the lunch period, a mound of chicken sits untouched, and even more is dumped into the trash after a few wary nibbles.

That much we do know from watching Jamie Oliver’s "Food Revolution" reality TV series now airing on ABC. But we’re not supposed to know that Jamie is substituting high-end foodstuffs that normally grace three-star restaurants for the cheap, institutional fare dished out in public schools like West Virginia’s Central City Elementary School, the setting for the first two episodes.

At the end of one episode, we hear�Rhonda McCoy, director of food services for the local county, tell Jamie that he’s over budget and did not meet the fat content and calorie guidelines, but she’s going to let him continue with the "revolution" as long as he addresses these issues. What is not revealed is that the "meal cost at Central City Elementary during television production more than doubled with ABC Productions paying the excess expense," according to a�document obtained by AlterNet from the West Virginia Department of Education.

Was the Wheel of Fortune One-Letter Solve Really a Miracle?

Caitlin Burke knew she was right, because she knew there were no other possibilities. She didn’t need Pat Sajak to confirm it; she didn’t need any other letters, any more time to cycle through her truncated alphabet. With just an innocuous-seeming apostrophe and a single L, she was as sure as she’s ever been: I’VE GOT A GOOD FEELING ABOUT THIS.

Stephen Fry : What I’d Wish I’d Known When I Was 18

What’s New? : Redesigning the Past

What would you do if you could travel back in time? Assassinate Marilyn Monroe? Go on a date with Hitler? Obviously. But here’s what I’d do after that: grab all the modern technology I could find, take it to the late 70’s, superficially redesign it all to blend in, start a consumer electronics company to unleash it upon the world, then sit back as I rake in billions, trillions, or even millions of dollars.
