    No, via Betteridge's law.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betteridge's_law_of_headlinesRegardless of any Apple TV showing up or not, holding up Samsung's relatively crappy interactive tv offerings as something that is going to be hard to beat, by anyone let alone Appe, is laughable.

    Interesting! What completely new product categories has Samsung innovated in? Bigger phones?

    What amazing application software has Samsung written? Productivity Apps? Operating Systems?

    Revolutionizing everything they touched for like a decade isn't enough? They haven't earned a breather?

    One problem with taking a breather whilst on top of the game is that someone else can easily Knock you off your perch. Time and technology do not stand still...

    Right, and as I asked what has Samsung innovated on in the meantime besides bigger screens? I'm not being blase here, I'm a technophile, I'd genuinely like to know so I can get on board!
