Pouring A Small Amount Of Water On The Apple TV Fire I Sort Of Started

A month ago, I tweeted something in passing:

I guess those excited about a software refresh in a week are gonna be *really* excited when new Apple TV hardware is unveiled next month.

I obviously wasn’t tweeting such information for no reason, but I also wasn’t confident enough in the information to write a full post about it — as I was for the gold iPhone, for example. 

Still, a few others wrote full posts based on my tweet. And over the past couple of days, as we near the Apple event next week, people have been reiterating what I tweeted.

Well, now I feel the need to pour a little — just a little, mind you — cold water on the rumor fire. While I still haven’t heard anything concrete, the most recent whispers I have heard is that the Apple TV project has been delayed a bit. 

That doesn’t mean we won’t see an Apple TV update at the event — we could see an updated unit with a spec bump or something. But the thing to be more excited about, the device with some sort of newfangled control system, doesn’t seem like it’s ready just yet.

Again, not a lot of concrete information here, which is why I only tweeted in the first place. But if I were a betting man, I wouldn’t bet on some huge new Apple TV update at this event. I think the new iPads, Macs, and OS X Mavericks will be enough for one event for Apple.

Originally, I had heard this new-style Apple TV (not an actual television, by the way) was slated for sometime around this November. It’s hard to imagine Apple holding a third event following the iPhone one in September and the iPad event next week. But who knows? Not me, this time.

    Before I read the post I was like… you shouldn’t pour water on an electrical fire.
