HBO Now + $69 = Apple TV no longer a hobby for Apple
Apple TV has sold 25 million units in 9 years. That's a tiny market compared to the iPhone which has sold 700 million units in less time. Remember when Jobs called Apple TV a "hobby"?
I'd be shocked if Apple doesn't release an updated Apple TV this year
2500 banks now support Apple Pay. Almost 700,000 retail locations accept it. 40,000 Coke machines!
I think they're selling off the old Apple TVs in advance of a new one.
I also believe HBO is just the beginning of new media services for Apple.
All major car makers support CarPlay (which I'll never get in my 2014 Focus, sadly).
It does seem that there will be no new Apple TV announced. That would make our first rumor that proved false.
@HarryMcCracken: you'll get in your future Apple Car
Apple is promoting their impact on health and fitness moments after bragging about its install base in Coke machines. Can you have it both ways?
I don't think they said, rdd.
