Is it me, or this thing kind of big?

For a 4.7" Screen this thing looks like it will be bigger than the Nexus 5 which has a 4.95" screen.

What do you guys think?

Another Standard, More Complications?

Apple seems to be the one major company missing from the Google, Microsoft, and Paypal FIDO alliance for standards around biometric authentication.

As the Verge reports Authentic the company Apple purchased whose technology is integral to TouchID, was in the alliance but dropped out once the acquired by Apple.

So my question is why? If there is anything the three largest tech companies can come to some sort of agreement on is a biometric standard. I feel as a consumer of Apple, Microsoft, and Google goods, this just makes my life more complicated if these things ever become mainstream.

Why can't companies just use a standard and focus on developing better solutions by using that standard. It was done with WiFi and Bluetooth and that worked fine.

What do you all think. What reasons might apple have for not being apart of this alliance?

Should this community be renamed?

+Andrew Daley, +Matthew Snider, +Mike Elgan

Gentleman would it be possible to rename the community to something more Apple Centric. Cult of Mac us great but I think you are really missing on a huge chunk of Google Plus folks by having the name Cult of Mac.

I suggest the Community be renamed The Apple Community

I left the Apple Community long ago because of this +HeCareth M. Wosu. The owner of that community has taken a hands off approach and allows his moderators to rule with an Iron Fist thus completely obliterating the free exchange of ideas..

In any case, the owner of this community +Mike Elgan has spoken up as to his intent on the naming. As the owner, changing the name (if that's even possible?) is his call. It's not up for vote as I see it.

If you have a better name that is not already taken +HeCareth M. Wosu, perhaps you should start a new community using it?

How Can Apple Differentiate in the TV Space...My Thoughts

So we have a ton of set boxes out there that basically do the same thing. FireTV basically regurgitated an Apple TV with games, effectively bringing us "Me Too" device that might work a little bit better and have some additional features.

The Live TV Integration Side

Now I feel the company to first integrate Live TV with the Online Media stuff, will have a huge advantage in this space to come. However, I do not think content providers are going to give this to just one company. Like in the streaming music side, I think Content Providers will give this service out to everyone at the same time...just like, making sure there is a even playing ground, and companies like Apple to control the influence, like how they dad with iTunes and Music.

What Will Be Key

So companies like Apple will need to differentiate their service. For Google I feel Android TV is going to be about search and contextualizing users viewing habits and linking it all in Google Now, but that is another post another forum. For Apple this can be the same thing, however, because of the more closed off nature of Apple's ecosystem having access to that data is a bit more difficult.

I think the key will be iBeacons. Yes some of you know I have consistently said if Apple does not control how iBeacons is used it will effectively turn into another ad platform. However, Apple has something in iBeacons many of the other companies do not have. The ability to know who is sitting in front of the television, by virtue of proximity to a iBeacon enabled Apple TV box.

How will it work?

I think it is fairly simple. You walk into your living, with your iPhone and turn on the television and all of a sudden you get a TV profile built for you, which is separate from that of your kids or wife. In addition If the Apple TV notices both you and your wife, boyfriend, etc... are in front of the television together, it gives you a profile based on watching habits when the two of you are in front of the TV...movies, shows both people watch, etc...I think this is a simpler implementation which is more reliable and more hands off.

Gaming will be another feature. Imagine you have a party and everyone wants to play Words with Friends. Using iBeacons and people's iPhones the Apple TV will know who is in the room and could send gaming invites to everyone's phones, with the main board appearing on the big screen.

Conclusion

I think in the end the how live TV integration part will eventually be the same across the board. However, if Apple leverages iBeacons to enhance the experience of the living room, it could be a defining feature that sets it apart from the rest. Yes like everything Apple does it will only be for iOS users, which is more of a problem for multi user devices than personal devices. However, Apple seems to not care about that and this could easily be seen as them trying to lock more users into their ecosystem.
