Here's the problem with Apple rumors. There's very little accuracy most of the time. And even I get suckered sometimes. Apple makes it all too easy by creating products people desire and keep their mouth shut until it's time to announce something.
That's why in yesterday's story on the iTV I made sure to use words like rumored and supposedly. The story I linked to by The Daily made it sound as if it were all true. It's really the crux of the problem with online journalism. There's no fact checking.
So it seems the story about the CEO of Foxconn spilling the beans about the new Apple iTV was bogus. Well, most of it was anyway. There's no time table to start production and he never went into the details of the product.
Granted, I think much of the speculation as to what the TV will look like and how it will perform will be accurate. I saw an ad for a TV last week that allows you to talk to it and control the menu via hand gestures (it's the Xbox Connect technology which I said at the time will be a game changer). So the future of TV is changing.
Here's the debunking of the iTV story from CNN Money, Anatomy of an iTV rumor.
