Apple iTV Next?

1072241757_1 Call it Apple Joost.  The best new beme on the street here in Silicon Valley is the possible acquisition by Apple of web TV company Joost.  More than just technology , the hook up is about pedigree.  Joost was co-founded by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis–yes–of Skype fame.  They claim Joost fills a critical gap in the online video entertainment arena by enabling premium interactive video experiences while guaranteeing copyright protection for content owners and creators.  Do the math.  Sound like a juicy deal for Steve Jobs’ growing media empire.

    wow apple buy Joost? that’ will be a good one, but we have yet seen apple really buy a web 2.0 type company unless you know I don’t. Most of the time apple just makes a clone of a pre-existing service.
    I do think it would be a great buy thought. Thanks for the post.
