Rumor: Apple 'almost certainly' making iOS TV set for 2012

The persistent rumor of an Apple-branded TV was sparked once again with a rumor from multiple sources. The tips from San Francisco Bay area contacts for Alsop Louie Ventures didn't say much more than that it would most likely run iOS and with an aim for 2012. Co-founder Stewart Alsop explained to VentureBeat that he was on the boards of Sonos and TiVo and was connected to the hardware field. He speculated that Apple was mostly held back by the costs of LCD panels. Rumors of a full Apple TV, not just today's media hub, have been persistent for years and have in some cases been projections of desires more than reality. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has long called for an Apple TV set but has only now begun claiming sources at Apple and the supply chain that suggest Apple might be moving forward. A tentative separate report also mentioned a new TV video delivery method in the works at Apple.
