What's up next for Apple? After that whole iPhone thing of course? Various news outlets today suggest that an Apple gaming console may be next on the agenda. Prudential analyst Jesse Tortora believes that Apple Computer's hiring of video game designers may indicate that Apple intends to jump into the gaming market itself, according to a report
at Apple Insider.
If this is the path that Apple intends to take, certainly its superior design aesthetic plus its iPod-boosted brand name will help it establish a presence in the gaming market. It's unclear whether the introduction of the iTV this January will be tied at all to gaming.
