This Gene Munster guy is hilarious.

Every few months, he confidently announces that Apple is about to release its own TV:

• Early 2011: https://twitter.com/genemunster/status/10509759979454464
• Or maybe sometime in 2012: http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-tv-details-gene-munster-2011-11
• Actually, make that "late" 2012: http://www.businessinsider.com/gene-munster-apple-could-announce-new-tv-this-december-2012-5
• Just kidding -- I meant 2013: https://twitter.com/genemunster/statuses/270901641828524034
• Ahem -- Q3 2013: https://twitter.com/genemunster/status/303935430938726400
• Um, "late" 2013: http://www.businessinsider.com/no-apple-tv-until-november-2013-says-analyst-gene-munster-2012-11
• Who said 2013? It's 2014: http://www.valuewalk.com/2013/09/gene-munster-apple-inc-aapl-tv/

...and yet, every time he puts out some new random prediction, we see a fresh wave of headlines proclaiming "APPLE TV IS COMING FOR REAL THIS TIME, ANALYST SAYS!!"

Maybe I should get on this bandwagon. You just take a product you know a company is at least broadly investigating and then say it's gonna come out in the near future, right? 

Let's see...Google is going to release a smartwatch sometime in 2013. You heard it here first, folks.

Man, I'm totally gonna look like a genius soon. GO ANALYSTS!

Note: This prediction will be updated and pushed back every three to six months while making it sound like I knew what was happening the entire time.
