When Apple’s CEO and figurehead, Steve Jobs passed away this year, many feared that Apple would be left adrift without their creative leader. It is well known that Jobs himself had a firsthand role in the development of Apple’s most successful products.
“We honestly have just been sitting around for months with no idea what to do.” said Apple’s Senior VP of Industrial Design, Jony Ive this week. “But then I read the Steve Jobs biography, and it’s just full of ideas! Have you guys read it? There’s a whole part about this new kind of Apple TV, it’s amazing. And then the chapter about how to make the 15” MacBook Air work, I really couldn’t figure it out. Steve really was a unique talent in this industry.”
The book includes detailed schematics of the next three generations of the iPhone, iPod and iMac. No Mac Pro tower is detailed, but the book does specify that Apple will no longer be focusing on support for the professional market in the upcoming years. Ive continued to sing praises for the late Jobs’ biography: “It’s amazing that Steve was able to code much of OS X 10.8 Snow Lion and OS XI Brontosaurus, and it was just such a stroke of luck for us that Isaacson was able to print it all in this wonderful book. And I can’t tell you how relieved I am to be able to start some real work on the iBrain. According to the book, it’s going to be revolutionary.”
Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs has been available for several months now, and includes Jobs’ favourite oatmeal cookie recipe as well as most of Apple’s banking information.
A new Apple television set has been the hotly debated subject of a number of rumors since the release of Steve Jobs’ biography this past month. There is a particular chapter in the book in which Jobs speaks of a new product:
“I’ve been secretly working on an Apple TV set.” Jobs told me in confidence. “It’s going to revolutionize the television industry in the most magical way possible. This baby is going to melt faces and make your brain explode.”
Unfortunately for Apple, it seems that the new Retina Display television set literally does melt faces in addition to causing other bodily harm to its viewers. Our insider has the scoop:
Apple is currently in the testing stage with the new Apple TV. It looks like it’s still going to be a while before it’s ready for release, though. Product testers have been complaining about headaches, nausea, temporary blindness, diarrhea, permanent blindness, heart attacks, nose failure, death, and cottonmouth. I heard that an entire test facility was destroyed when someone tried to AirPlay an iPhoto slideshow from an iPad 3 to the new Apple TV. It was devastating for the development team to have to go back and tweak their designs.
While the immediate cause of these minor afflictions is still unknown, many people are theorizing that the 15970 x 9780 display is just an unholy number of pixels not meant for mankind.

A new rumor is circulating this week regarding an updated Apple TV. What makes this latest iteration of Apple’s popular media device different is the fact that it will not only be a streaming device, but a fully-fledged Retina Display television set. Apple Inquisition is excited to announce that we have recently decided that these rumors are actually hard facts.
The new Apple TV will only be sold in a 52” model. And while it is still unconfirmed as to whether or not the unit will have multi-touch, 3D, or Smell-O-Vision, the new Retina Display is a sure thing. Keeping with the standard set with the iPhone 4, the Apple TV will sport an impressive pixel density of 326 pixels per inch. Standard high-definition television sets today support a resolution of 1920 x 1080 while the new Apple TV boasts a much higher-definition of 15,970 x 9,780.
What all of this means is that watching a full 1080p Blu-Ray film on the Apple TV will take up only four inches of screen space, and frankly, we here at Apple Inquisition are thrilled.
We expect the new Apple TV will launch on Easter Sunday, and it will retail for $36,000 USD.
