  • "Apple TV's 4K Future" ["Let's say Apple sells five million Apple TVs per year at $79 wholesale for gross hardware revenue of just under $400 million annually. While $400 million sounds like a lot, for a company with Apple's fiscal 2014 sales of $182 billion, it's at best a rounding error, if that -- just over two tenths of a percent of total sales. So in an MBA textbook sense the Apple TV wasn't (and isn't) worth doing. The business simply isn't big enough to bother."]  I, Cringely 8:05 AM
