Apple TV Sets: They're Here!

By  |  Saturday, September 4, 2010 at 5:32 am

You know that venerable rumor about Apple TV sets? Well, they’re here at  the IFA tech show in Berlin. Sort of. What I’m trying to say is that I came across these flatscreens in one booth.

Of course, this particular Apple TV is from weirdly-shaped TV specialist Hannspree, and it’s actually one of the company’s less eccentric models.

I assume Apple can’t prevent Hannspree from selling an apple-shaped TV, but I do wonder about the Apple-ish logo on the larger model. Do Steve Jobs’s trademark attorneys know about this?

    Heh, good one, Harry. Those remind me of the Apple-shaped TV set in Animal Crossing on the GameCube.

    RJ Reynolds might have some words to say about the Camel TV

    I hope those never come to the US

    I doubt they could given that Apple has a copyright on “Apple TV” and there is a huge risk of confusion. Not to mention that Apple is very protective of the image of apples. I just don’t think they would risk it.
