Apple Presentation – Lefsetz Letter
I disagree with Lefsetz on this one. How did they make TV so *boring*. A friend asked during the presentation “I’ve had Apple TV for a while, what did they add?”
I struggled a bit with that, but here is my summary:
1. A new remote. It has touch (nice) and Siri integration (we’ll see, good in theory).
2. They added apps so you can play games. I’m skeptical about this one but I know that I don’t understand gaming on iPhones either and that’s HUGE.
3. They copied the Wii in terms of gameplay, the Harmonix game and the Frogger copycat game were just painful to watch.
Innovative? Not really, just iterative. And iteration is fine, sometimes that’s all you need to hit a home run. But I didn’t see the “wow” today like I expected to.
