In the biography of Steve Jobs, it is hinted at that Apple might be working on its own HDTV device, which will integrate with iTunes, the company’s digital stores, AirPlay and more, just like the Apple TV set-top box.
Now, in a report published by Bloomberg, it is noted that Apple’s Jeff Rubin, the man who built iTunes and co-led the development of the iPod, may be working on the HDTV project.
As outlined in the report:
Apple Inc. is turning to the software engineer who built iTunes to help lead its development of a television set, according to three people with knowledge of the project.
Jeff Robbin, who helped create the iPod in addition to the iTunes media store, is now guiding Apple’s internal development of the new TV effort, said the people, who declined to be identified because his role isn’t public.
