• Eddy Cue Confirms 20 Million Apple TV Sales



    Telling the audience during his remarks Wednesday at the Code Conference that today's TV "sucks," Apple's SVP of Internet Software and Services provided ample evidence that consumers largely agree with that assessment.

    According to Cue, Apple has now sold a staggering 20 million Apple TVs. When you consider that the hardware hasn't even been refreshed since the spring of 2012, that's a remarkable sales accomplishment.

    “All we have today is glorified VCRs,” Cue said, saying the only big improvement is that now you don’t have to reset the clock when the power goes out.... “The experience has been stuck.”
    Although Cue didn't elaborate on how Apple will make TV "suck" less, many tech news writers and industry analysts say Cue's comments are indicative of Apple's interest in the living room and likely foreshadow big plans for future products (new devices or refreshed hardware across already existing product lines).
