Loaded: Apple TV on the way?

2:25 /

Valentino brings 3D fashion to the Web, tweet seats cater to those with smartphone withdrawal, and an Apple TV is rumored to come in three sizes.

It's Tuesday December 6, 2011. I'm Kara Tsuboi at cnet.com and it's time to get loaded. Apple TV rumors are surfacing again. This is time Australian tech site Smart House says a major company in Japan leaked information that Apple is gearing up to launch three TV sizes ranging from 32 to 55 inches. It's also rumored that the displays will ship at the same time as Apple's A6 processor which is what the iPad 3 is expected to run. Similar to Siri the software will supposedly let users call a program using their voice. This week fashion and tech worlds collide. Famous fashion designer Valentino has digitized 300 dresses original sketches and archival footage. Users can download an application to their Mac's or PC's but most of the data is stored on the Cloud. Couldn't say while the collection is comprehensive some of the tech like the zoom feature is outdated. And that is not fashionable. The Sony Ericsson line will soon be known just as Sony. The company is planning to drop the Ericsson from it's smart phone and future tablet's line. Sony still plans to release it's Nozomi smart phone at Mobile World Congress next year but that will likely be the last Sony phone with Ericsson branding. The change should be official by the middle of next year. If you haven't heard of the H1 Siri hack, it's an unofficial way to install the voice command software on the last gen iPhone4. It came out yesterday but users had reported issues with rebooting, malfunctions with the camera and possible bricking. The Siri hack also sends users data to the software's creators not something most people are comfortable with. So unless you need to talk to your iPhone4 we recommend waiting for a bug fix. Finally some major US theaters are now encouraging people to use their phones mid performance. Places like Cincinnati Symphony and the St. Louis Shakespeare Festival are setting aside tweet seats for people who need to connect to their social networks. Proponents say it helps people stand gauge with what their watching by swapping information about the show. Let's just hope that tweet seats are the cheap seats. Those are your headline for today, I'm Kara Tsuboi for cnet.com.
