Apple is in talks to acquire German luxury television manufacturer Loewe, according to an unconfirmed report from AppleInsider. The site claims Apple has offered €87.3 million for the company, a 48% premium from Loewe's Friday close on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.415
Quote:
Word of the negotiations was exclusively revealed to AppleInsider, and although the offer has yet to be accepted, a source claims that Loewe "has been advised by its financial advisor to accept the offer and a final decision is scheduled to be announced internally before 18 May 2012."

Now that is a nice looking HDTV...

Not sure how well an Apple branded TV would sell.

You can't really take it out in public to show it off...

Well that means pretty soon apple will try and sue tv manufactures also for colors and other things the attempt to patent lol

There are other nice looking tvs out there just most people will not spend the money but I guess this is handed down from the heavens because it is apple.

LOL. Headshot.

In all honesty, the upcoming apple sets will probably dominate the TV market and turn manufacturers from that of nomadic tribes with hordes of options/confusing specs to a unified front. Which in the end, competition is better for the consumer.

Actual set looks OK but that base is meh.

No, but I'm sure they will tweet and post how amazing it is. Hold on, "Let me me just take out my iPhone." wink.gif

I dream of the day when Americans stop being consumerist pigs. Don't even get me started how this is also 'christian' behavior.

You know, back before I gave Apple a shot I was as narrow minded as you guys. Not every Apple owner is buying their products to showoff. I personally have a Macbook for my laptop and a pc for my desktop. To me the mac os and track pad are just perfect for a laptop. Just because it doesn't have all the hardware, doesn't mean it isn't worth the premium price... I'd pay the extra premium for the trackpad alone as for some reason other companies just don't seem to get how to make one. Apple bashing seems to be the theme on this board, which I understand since most people here are about hardware.
