Will Apple launch a TV?

The web has lit up with claims that Apple is going to launch an Apple television set in 2013 or 2014. The excitement was first fuelled by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ comments to his biographer that Apple had "cracked" television, and then fanned by CEO Tim Cook, who has described television as an area of "intense interest" for Apple. This is interesting given the fact that the company had previously described its Apple TV set-top box as "a hobby". In this feature we look at what Apple have planned for the TV market.
