I think it will be insanely great. The only problem I see is that they can't call it the iTV because that's the name of a UK TV network. I guess Apple could always sue them for using that name 60 years before Apple thought of it.

That sounds like a perfectly reasonable application of US intellectual property law.

(I wish I could put some // here, but I really can't. US law really is this screwed up)

Couldn't Apple call it iVision or iTube?

As for speculation:

1 - I'm going with iTube for the name.

2 - the iTube's User License Agreement will include forgoing all of your civil liberties and be punished for breach of contract by being subjected to a single, random Katy Perry song stuck on infinite loop.

3 - iTube will censor all adult material by automatically redirecting the user to Gangnam Style. Because nothing kills the mood like the Korean Macarena.

4 - iTube will kill children who watch the exact same show three times in a row.

5 - On Steve Job's birthday, iTube will hack the pentagon and command all drone aircraft to kill anyone with the name "Gates."

6 - Start saving your money now because iTube will charge you hundreds of bucks per episode of Breaking Bad.

7 - Anonymous will hack iTube. iTube will retaliate on Jobs' next birthday.

8 - Once anonymous is dead, the Chinese military will exploit a backdoor they ordered Foxconn to install in every iTube. Enjoy spending the rest of your life in a sweatshop or a coalmine.

Oh, and We Know Putin Would Never Lie to Snowden!
Snowden, 30, wearing a jacket and open-collar shirt and speaking before a dark background, asked Putin: "Does Russia intercept, store or analyse, in any way, the communications of millions of individuals?" "And do you believe that simply increasing the effectiveness of intelligence or law enforcement investigations can justify placing societies, rather than subjects, under surveillance?" he asked. He was speaking in English, and ...

Criminalizing Expectant Mothers - NYT
Even by the standards of the growing Republican assault on the lives and rights of women, a new bill passed by bipartisan majorities in both houses of Tennessee's Legislature recently stands out for being meanspirited and counterproductive. If signed by the state's Republican governor, Bill Haslam, the legislation would give Tennessee the dubious distinction of being the first state to specifically authorize the ...

Calgary stabbings: How knife crime in Canada can cause ‘moral panic’
What Calgary police chief Rick Hanson called the "worst mass murder" in the city's history didn't end at the barrel of a gun. Instead, the 22-year-old suspect identified on Tuesday as Matthew de Grood is accused of entering the kitchen at a house party, taking "a large knife" and using it to fatally stab four men and one woman, all of whom were students ...

Back Story of Yasiel Puig’s Journey to America Should Concern Dodgers
Seemingly from the moment Cuban refugee Yasiel Puig showed up at Dodger Stadium out of nowhere, arriving last June unwilling to discuss his unknown background, the talk behind the batting cages has been rife with unprintable rumors. There were rumors Puig was smuggled out of Cuba by members of a Mexican drug cartel. There were rumors he still owed the smugglers money, and ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

These 5 Countries Are Crushing the Whole Gender Equality Thing at Home
When looking at this data, it's important to remember that gender equality isn't just about women working more paid hours or doing less housework. It's also about men cutting back their work hours to pitch in more around the house. Countries that have lighter workweeks, in fact, tend to have a more equal distribution between men and women in the home. The OECD ...

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Will Trudeau’s Party Pay for His Ill-Chosen Words?
Justin Trudeau has talked him­self into a defama­tion law­suit that is likely to leave his party quite a bit lighter in the wal­let. The shoot-from-the-lip Lib­eral leader and his On­tario cam­paign co-chair David Mac­Naughton are named in a $1.5-mil­lion li­bel suit filed on be­half of Chris­tine Innes, a can­di­date who was barred from run­ning for the Lib­eral party.

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
