Apple-Branded Entertainment Server?

1 Comment

Merrill Lynch speculates at Apple introducing an entertainment server to the market, to possibly compete with current DVR’s and Media Center PC’s. “A 200GB Apple server at a reasonable price and possibly with PVR technology could be Apple’s next category killer,” the firm was reported saying. “It’s premature to know which (if any) device will become the centerpiece of the digital family room of the future,” … “Still, we doubt that PCs (even Media Center PCs) will win because they are too complex and unstable. It strikes us as more likely that either (1) the game console will move up market to become the leading device or (2) a new system we dub the entertainment server will be created.”
