Bloomberg reports that Apple is developing a standalone television set. In his recent biography, Steve Jobs was said to have finally cracked the code of how to build a fully connected TV that would sync content wirelessly. While not confirmed by Apple, you could bet on seeing it in the future. In other news, a survey of about 1,400 parents found that their children are spending more time in front of screens than ever. About a third of children under two have a television in their room and the average age for using a computer is now three and a half. And finally, while more news publications are moving towards digital formats, only 14% of tablet owners are willing to pay for the content. News and magazine publishers are having a hard time convincing consumers to pay for both print and digital editions.
