Terry Gou, chairman of Foxconn, has confirmed to the China Daily today that Apple’s long-rumored iTV is real and that his company will be involved in its manufacture. According to the report, Apple’s television set will have aluminum construction, Siri voice controls, and FaceTime video calling.
Are you in desperate need for a new television? Hoping this is the year Apple will finally reveal their long-rumored iTV? Think again. ZDNet is reporting that Apple will wait until 2014 to release their television set. Still, that doesn't mean Apple is sitting around doing nothing.

Known for his New Design style, Phillippe Starck has created everything from streetlights in Metz, France, to entire hotel lobbies in New York, to home products at Target stores. Now the French-based designer could be working on what could become the biggest new product launch since the iPad.
The long-rumored real Apple TV could arrive later this year and be called … the iPanel. This is the conclusion drawn from Jefferies analyst, Peter Misek, who studies Apple and other technology companies, according to AppleInsider.
